Do We Love Like Jesus?

It has been amazing to see just how much hate has been promoted, and even by people who profess to be Christian. Jesus said in Matthew 12:37 'For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.' Verse 33, Jesus said 'Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit.' Let's take this just a little further; look at verses 34 and 35 where Jesus says 'Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.' What I am saying here is you cannot call yourself an apple tree when it's obvious that you are producing oranges! Your actions and words will speak exactly what is in your heart. Are we loving like Jesus, or are we carnal Christians? The fruit never lies! I am just telling you what the Word says. I didn't write it but praise God I must teach it! We cannot be attacking our brothers and sisters in the faith, just because they don't 'line' up with how we think they should be. Romans 14:4 says 'Who are you to judge another's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand.' I will sum it up with what 1 John 4:20-21 says; 'If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? and this commandment we have from him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.' In John 13:34-35, Jesus said 'A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.' We will be known as the disciples of Jesus Christ, if we have love for one another. We must love like Jesus, or we will never be able to reach anyone, and we will be called a brood of vipers and hypocrites. God is love, and the love of God has been shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5). Do you love like Jesus?
