identified by Christ's love

I do not want to be identified or defined by what I am against, but by the showing of the characteristics of the One who saved and forgave me.

I will not be effective in showing anyone the path to acknowledgement of and forgiveness for sin if I do not first feel the Father's love for them.

Think of the sin that most offends you in others. Are you, am I, being asked to pray for, intercede for, plead for those who struggle with and/or give in to that sin? Do you, do I, love them enough, even as Christ loves them, to sacrifice yourself, to sacrifice myself, for them?
