The Witness of Love
† ďThis is how we know
what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay
down our lives for our brothers.Ē
when I was young, my sister had typhoid fever. She ran a high fever, spoke
unclearly and became delirious. I was terrified and prayed to God that I
wouldnít get it. But unfortunately, I got it also a few days later. I
panicked and thought I was going crazy. My father wrapped me with a blanket
and held me tightly while we sat on a chair. At that moment, my fear was
gone. He led me in prayer and asked God to heal my body. In his strong arms,
I felt safe. It seemed that he was sent by God to protect me and love me.
later, when I was sitting by my sonís bed, looking at his face red with
fever, reminded me of when my father was by my side. I suddenly realized
Godís love was shown through a person who loved me. God sent his beloved son
to come to this world and to die for our sins in order to demonstrate His
love and salvation towards us.
† We may teach a
worrisome person the way of joy; we may give to the poor to help them out; we
may help a sick person to regain their strength, but if we do these without
opening our arms and embracing them or opening our hearts to receive them, we
still have not given them true love. God can use our wisdom, fortune, and
skill to help others, but He would rather us to display His love.
†† Man cannot see God, but man can see those
who love God. Those who love God must be filled with Godís love and be willing
to love others. As God gives parents the right to love their own children, He
also gave the right to His children to love those that need love. We have no
right to keep Godís love to ourselves. We have to share Godís love with
†† The most beautiful thing in our life is to
enjoy love. As I look back at my life, I notice that God used many people to
help me to walk through the valley of death. They were standing by my side
just like cheerleaders; they encouraged me which helped me through. Because
of this, I believe that nothing can separate us from Christís love. Therefore
I do not fear for tomorrow, because is in Godís hand.
