Stop Pouring Gasoline

15 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. ~ Ephesians 4:15-16

In today’s world, it’s difficult to show love, especially to those who seem to only spew hatred and evil, but according to Paul, the greatest apostle who ever lived, we are correct and build each other up in love. As Christ was hanging on the cross and the people were mocking Him, He still cried out for God to forgive them because they didn’t know what they were doing. This is how we are supposed to be.

We are supposed to preach, teach, correct, and discipline in love so that we might build up the body of Christ and show the love of God to as many as we can. In doing this, we plant the seed of love within unbelievers and water the tree of love in believers. If we don’t walk in love, we are essentially trying to put out a fire by pouring gasoline on it. So, let the Holy Spirit fill you and mold you so that you might walk in love.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Stop Pouring Gasoline.
