You Have the Power to Love Others.

This Sunday we will be looking at Express Truth #5 - Just as God has treated me with Love, I treat others with LOVE. If you didn't notice, this is a variation on the golden rule: Treat other the way you want to be treated, which comes from Jesus's sermon on the mount in Matthew 7:12.

Jesus was by far the best example we have of following this truth and if we set ourselves up to follow His example we will ultimately fulfill this truth without even trying. Unfortunately it is so easy for us to put ourselves before others and even forget why this is not a good practice. But as we reflect on God's eternal love for us, we see that even when it's hard, even we have been wronged, just as God loved us while we were in our sin, we can love others when they are nice to us or mean to us.
