Good Morning!

WHAT IS TO BE THE BOTTOM LINE IN OUR MINISTRY TO OTHERS?

Consider this:

"But the goal of our instructions is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith." (I Timothy 1:5)

#1 - "LOVE FROM A PURE HEART"

That is: Simply loving people with no strings attached.

While they were butchering Jesus on a pole, He cried, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." (Luke 23:34).

That is pure love. And that is how we are to love others.

#2 - "LOVE FROM A CLEAR CONSCIENCE"

That is: Simply ministering to people out of pure motives: Guilt free. Only possible if :

"...Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus." (II Timothy 2:1)

"Therefore, since we have this ministry, we have received mercy..." (II Corinthians 4:1)

#3 - " LOVE FROM A SINCERE FAITH"

That is: Simply loving people without hypocrisy. (Romans 12:9a)

Judas' kiss in betraying Christ is illustrative of hypocritical love. (Luke 22:47, 48)

I trust you are having a great week!
