If I Don’t Have Love – There is a good bit that can be said if you don’t have low. The Bible even mentions if you don’t have love. #Love
If I Don’t Have Love
We are not a Disciple of Jesus. A mark of a Disciple of Jesus is love. We are told we must love one another, even our enemies. It is after all the Greatest Commandment and part of the Fruit of the Spirit.
As they say there is proof in the pudding!
1st Corinthians 13 is known as the love chapter of the Bible. It tells us all about love. What love is and isn’t. If we don’t love one of the things the Bible say is that we are like a Clanking cymbal (or a noisy gong). Basically, we are just noise!
“If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.”1 Corinthians 13:1 NASB
If we hate someone, we are told that is just like murder! 1 John 3:15. As a Christian, we are not to hate.
Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.1 John 3:15 NASB
Love covers a multitude of sins. Without love, it won’t cover a multitude of sins. See 1 Peter 4:8
Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.1 Peter 4:8 NASB
We are suppose to do good to our enemies, that includes even love them too. Hate should not be in a Christian. That is why we are told that we will be known as a disciple by love. See John 13:35!
By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”John 13:35 NASB
So let’s show love to everyone! Even those who wrong us, hurt us, our enemies etc. ! Let love be shown! The Love of Christ! Don’t be a noisy clanging symbol!
