*Love Like You Have Nothing to Lose*

The bible study that I attended last night allowed those who were there the  space to talk about what Christmas means. We also discussed the following things: love, Christ’s mission and example for His followers, sacrifice & suffering for love to be accomplished and available for us today, etc. The question was posed, If we knew we were to suffer (in the likeness of Christ) would we do it?

I’m trying to live in His likeness.

Ephesians 5:2 (The Message)

Wake Up from Your Sleep

1-2Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that.

Ephesians 5

Live in Love

5:1 Therefore, be1 imitators of God as dearly loved children 5:2 and live2 in love, just as Christ also loved us3 and gave himself for us, a sacrificial and fragrant offering4 to God.

Let’s love like we have nothing to lose. Let’s love like we have (only) something to gain!
