Walk In Love

Walk In Love
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given Himself
for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.
Eph 5:2
Here we see the motive for the performance of all duties and
responsibilities (which are really privileges and blessings) of
believers in regard to Christ and each other. The child of God needs not
a law or rules to direct him in his walk or govern his life. He has what
he needs – Christ’s love for him. With Christ and His love for us in
view how could we not love Him and our brethren. The love of God
manifest in Christ giving Himself for us “is shed abroad in our hearts
by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us” Romans 5:5. This love is
manifest in our conversation or, walk, not just lip service – “My little
children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in
truth” 1John 3:18. Our Lord, constrained by love, lived His life for His
sheep and died for His sheep. Because He loves His own He now provides
for us, He protects us, He comforts us, He forgives us, He intercedes
for us, He blesses us with all Spiritual blessings and all temporal
blessings. He walked in love here on this earth until His death, and now
He reigns in love at the right hand of the Father. It is His desire
(which shall be accomplished) that all whom He loves shall be with Him
in Glory, eternally. Is this not the motive and attitude of those who
know Him? To be like Him? My brethren, because He walked in love for us
everything will be alright. As the body of Christ walks in love for Him,
His gospel and for one another, everything will be alright. As we are
mere mortals there will be difficulties, trials, and misunderstandings.
However, as we walk in love, as Christ gave Himself for us and loves us,
we will have peace and seek peace, we will give comfort be comforted, we
will forgive and be forgiven.
