Word Filled Wednesday-1 Peter 4:8

How can you prove God to someone who doesn’t believe in the bible? What is the visible thing that people can see in your life that makes them consider and think that what you believe might be the right one? It’s LOVE, they may not believe the bible but if they can see and feel the love you have for them, you may bring them to Christ.

I’ve read about Christians who suffered persecutions, they were tortured, imprisoned, beaten yet they were able to love their persecutors. Because of the love they have shown, many believed in Jesus Christ, they were able to bring to Christ their torturers.

“A flower if you bruise it under your feet, rewards you by giving you its perfume, likewise Christians tortured by the Communists, rewarded their torturers by love. We brought many of our jailers to Christ. And we are dominated by one desire, to give communists who have made us suffer the best we have, the salvation which comes from our Jesus Christ” Richard Wumbrand-Founder of the Voice of the Martyrs. Spent fourteen years in a Communist Prison in Romania-1940,’50s ‘60s

But how can we love others if we cannot even love our brothers and sisters in Christ?

Father, may you fill me with your love that I may love others, let me love even when it hurts, let me love even when I don’t understand, let me love even when I don’t feel like loving, let me love even when it’s not reciprocated.

1 Peter 4:8 “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sin”

  1. What a great reminder! Loving those we struggle with is the exact way God can use us to reach them. It’s not natural, it’s supernatural
