Christian Love

There is a lot of confusion about how to know if people are really Christians. Some people say we can know Christians because they do good things. Other people say real Christians must have spiritual gifts. Some people say we know people are Christians if they are baptized. Others say we can know people are Christians if they say they believe in Jesus. And still other people say real Christians know the Bible and believe the “right” things.
Christians do many of those things. But what does the Bible say about being a Christian? Today’s Bible verses tell us what a real Christian is like. The first thing on the list is love. Jesus said if we love Him, we will obey Him (John 15:10). Jesus commanded us to love other people (John 13:34). Also, in 1 John 4:7-8 we learn that people who follow Jesus show love for others.
The Bible tells us that someone who is a Christian will show love for God, Jesus and other people. I hope you will show love today.
