Is biblical and God-honoring love attainable between human beings? As a part of his classic Secret Series devotionals, Andrew Murray wrote this month-long devotional to remind believers that this kind of love is not only attainable, but it is commanded. Through the gracious spirit of God, believers can be a flowing stream of God’s love to the world.
Except from the book:
” The church must learn not only to preach the love of God in redemption, it must go further and teach Christians to show that the love of Christ is in their hearts. How? By love shown to the brethren. Our Lord called this a new commandment: a badge by which the world would recognize His disciples!
There is a great need for this preaching of love. God sometimes allows bitterness to arise between Christians in order that they may view the terrible power of sin in their hearts and shrink back at the sight. How greatly a minister and his people should feel the importance of Christ’s command: ‘Love one another.’ A life of great holiness will result if we really love each other as Christ loves us. “
