''My joke is easy, and My burden is light. Take My yoke upon you and you shall find rest.'' Love and duty is the Christians` test. Although, it`s not works that saves you. Salvation is free for all who choose.
Now that I`m redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, The Holy Spirit in me gives me strength to perform. On the other side of this yoke is the great I AM. I can love even my enemies above the norm.
It`s my duty to keep God`s commandments. My duties require it to meet His demands. James said, ''Show me your faith without works. I`ll show you my faith with works.''
How hard is it to love your neighbor? How hard is it to help him labor? How hard is it to ''Do unto others as you have them do to you?'' We must be separate from the world`s point of view.
How does the world know we love God? It is by our love for one another. We must love our sister and brother. But love must go even deeper than this. We must love sinners to have true bliss.
''But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which spitefully use you, and persecute you;
That you may be children of your Father which is in heaven: for He makes His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. ( Matthew 6:44,45- K.J.V.E.R. )
If this was the word that`s going around town, there would be more people Heaven bound. There would be more love in the world today, if only more Christians would live the right way.
