Words of Life: Love Covers – Feb 10th 2016

Words of Life for this week are:
Love Covers

Why can’t we all just get along?

These are the words that came from Rodney King many years ago in Los Angeles after the riots had occurred. His words still ring out clearly today. What is preventing people of different races or difference in genders the ability to get along in peace? We do need one another, and while we need one another, we sometimes irritate each other. What should we do when these differences occur? We should look to the Bible to help us figure this out. In reference to the genders, Ephesians 5:25 says “Husbands love your wives just as Christ loved the Church and gave himself up for her” Love cuts through our differences that sometimes can be irritating. Love can cover over those things that get us upset with one another. But it’s a special kind of love. It’s a sacrificial love that emulates the love of Christ. We can’t obtain this love on our own, but we must ask God to come into the center of our thinking and transform us into loving people. Then, we will have the ability to get along in peace. There will peace in the home and peace on the streets between the races.

Pass the Peace through HIS love,
Pastor David Greenidge
