Living For Christ – Reflections Of His Love

Living a life of Christianity and being a reflection of His love and Light according to the Holy Bible scriptures, is a journey of faith, obedience, and love. It is a commitment to align one’s life with the Word of God and to abide within the parameters of His commandments. Let’s explore the essence of such a life, guided by the timeless wisdom of the Bible.

It a presence of body heart mind and soul that is resilient to the world’s idols and ways. It is a witness of the unwavering love of Christ by trying to be reflective of that kind of love and ways. It is a willingness to commune with the LORD on a daily basis never taking a day off from loving Him, and serving Him.

The foundation of a Christian life is built upon the rock of God’s Word. The scriptures are clear: “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves” –James 1:22.

To live in line with the Word of God means to actively apply the teachings of the Bible in our daily lives. It is not enough to merely listen or agree with the scriptures; we must put them into practice. This requires diligent study, prayerful reflection, and a willingness to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.

The commandments of God serve as a moral compass, guiding us through the complexities of life. Jesus summarized the law in two great commandments: -“Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” –Matthew 22:36-39.

Love is the fulcrum upon which the Christian life pivots. To love God with all our being and to love our neighbors as ourselves is to fulfill the law. This love is active and sacrificial, seeking the good of others and honoring God in all we do. It a continuous process of refining and defining self by the power of Christ, who does it for us when we are willing participants in serving Him humbly and with all of our heart and soul and accepting Him as LORD and Savior over our lives.

Living within the parameters of God’s commandments also means embracing the fruits of the Spirit, which are:  “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” –Galatians 5:22-23.

These virtues are the hallmarks of a life lived in harmony with the Spirit of God. They are not burdensome but are the natural outflow of a heart in tune with the divine.

The purpose of this discourse is that a life aligned with the Word of God is one of profound peace and purpose. It is a life marked by love, service, and a deep connection with the Creator.

Let us remember that the love of God is the cornerstone of a Christian life. It is a love that forgives, heals, and restores. It is a love that calls us to live not for ourselves but for the One who gave His life for us.

Reflective questions to ponder:

  • How can we ensure that our daily actions reflect the teachings of the KJV scriptures?
  • What steps can we take to cultivate the fruits of the Spirit in our lives?
  • How does our love for God and neighbor manifest in practical ways?

“Dear Gracious Lord, we come to You with hearts full of gratitude for Your unfailing love and Your Word that lights our path. Help us to live lives that are pleasing to You, keeping Your commandments and walking in Your ways. May the love that You have poured into our hearts overflow to those around us, that they may see Your goodness and be drawn to You. Strengthen us to be doers of the Word, living testimonies of Your grace. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.”
