Spirit And Life Devotional: Loving Your Neighbour As Yourself

Romans 13:9 NKJV “For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

We can try forever to define love; well, love is of God and it determines what we do or do not do, first to ourselves and then to other people. As believers, we are not only instructed to love, we were also given God’s nature of love. Hallelujah!

Jesus said, “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:12). It’s called the Golden Rule. Permit me to rephrase it, “Whatever you would do to yourself, whether you have done it or not, do same to others.”

We should never be selfish or afraid to express genuine love for other people. Love goes beyond not hurting people around you, it’s about doing good to others whether they deserve it or not. You are encouraged today to love, not just as you love yourself, but as Christ loved us.
