“Following Jesus and Loving People”


When I think of a new year, I think of “renewal”. In my life with God, I discover that my need is not so much the renewal of “new information”, but the renewal of strength and perseverance in that which God has already revealed. For example, Jesus (in Matthew 22:37) declared, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…and love your neighbor as yourself.” For the year 2016 to be a success, in the highest sense of the word, we must embrace the renewal of our purpose to be instruments of the love of Jesus to this world. This is our number one need of renewal. If we advance in everything else but miss love, we fail miserably. Paul wrote eloquently about the grand themes of faith and hope, but said, “The greatest of these is love” (1 Cor. 13:13). The Apostle John also emphasized this renewal of love in his letters. He said, “I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another” (2 John v5). Loving people with the sacrificial love of Jesus trumps the best strategies, structures, and programs. This may sound extravagant, but I believe that if we pray each morning for God to use us to love and serve others, we need not ever have a “bad” day. The love of Jesus is powerful and real! It is the greatest source of strength in the universe, enabling us to finish the race we started. Paul once declared this about love: “It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres” (I Cor. 13:7).

Remember, the strength of perseverance is in new beginnings. May we begin this new year resolving to keep on loving God and others. You will have an awesome year!
