You belong to me…and I belong to you. We are family, Romans 12:5 NLT.
Being family, we have a responsibility to look after the needs of each other. Being generous, forgiving, loving and preferring others over ourselves always because we belong to each other. When we love and serve this way, people’s hearts are turned toward Jesus, 2Corinthians 9:11-15.
He gives us the ability to love this way when we start to understand how much He loves us, 1John 4:17.
There is so much freedom in His love for us that we cannot help but love others with a true and authentic love. Not a pretend love, a really authentic, genuine love Romans 13:9-10.
This is a high commitment love but this kind of commitment to one another brings unity.
God blesses unity Psalm 133.
