The Cross of Christ Teaches Us. . .How to Love
Steps to Take as You Follow Christ
Ask——Do I allow God to love through me?
Seek—Keep before you the image of Jesus forgiving those who nailed him on the cross and see everyone with whom you come into contact through Christ. Think about how Christ died for those people and how precious they are as children of God, the same God who loves you.
Knock—Meditate on 1 John 4:11–12.
Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No man has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
Ask Jesus to touch his wounds from his crucifixion to your own woundedness, that it may become a source of blessing.
Transform Your Life—Put God first in your life. Realize that you can love your spouse, your children, your friends, and your enemies only to the degree that you keep God first. We tend not to expect others to be perfect if we worship the only One who is perfect.
