JUSTICE

1 John 3:17

 

Rich people who see a brother or sister in need, yet close their hearts against them, cannot claim that they love God.
 

LESSON

 

We may not have the opportunity to save a brother’s life by dying in his place. Nevertheless, we can and should do the next best thing, namely, sustaining his life when he has material needs. When I give to a brother “in need” what might keep me alive, I have followed the Lord Jesus’ example of self-sacrificing love. Our love for God is manifested by obedience, but our love for other Christians is manifested by sacrifice.

We are called to love all people and to serve all people, but we are especially called to love and serve our brothers and sisters in the Lord. We are to have a love affair with the faithful.

 

Memory Verse: Luke 4:18
