A Preacher once said, “Can a rock that has been in the sunlight all day not fail to give off warmth and heat at night?” In like manner, can a Christian who has lived in the sunlight of God’s love not fail to give off warmth and love? No. That is why you have to have first things first. You don’t say to others, “Start loving each other. Be nice.” No. First, we need to live in the sunlight of God’s love. We need to bake in the sunlight of God’s compassion. We need to absorb God’s light into us. And then, we start to give off the love of God. God’s love is manifested to us in the giving of His Son on the cross, and the giving of His Holy word. To bake in the sunlight of God’s love we must read and obey His holy precepts. As obedient followers of the Almighty the warm of the true love of God affects those around us in a positive way.
“Ye are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do menlight a lamp, and put it under the bushel, but on the stand; and it shineth unto all that are in the house. Even so let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Mat. 5:14-16).
Are you baking in God’s love.
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
