Love for the "Other"

Hospitality and love for those who are not just like us (the “other”) are woven into the strands of our DNA at Prince of Peace/Príncipe de Paz. We come by this trait honestly, as our Heavenly Father has an unbounded love for all people, and His Son took on human flesh, in effect, to dwell among us as the “other.” The question for us today is, how will each of us push through our natural resistance to take people into our hearts, extend our hands, and walk with them through life, even if they are the “other”? Lord Jesus, give us a greater understanding of your love which breaks every barrier down, reaching even the likes of us. Equip us to extend that love to the “other.”

Scripture References: Deuteronomy 10:17-20, Galatians 3:23-29, Hebrews 13:1-2

From Series: "DNA"

In science, DNA is the basic code in all living things. The code in our DNA defines our physical characteristics and identifies us based on our lineage. Thinking about our Spiritual life in Christ in terms of DNA (metaphorically) can give us ways of talking about our identity as His people and how that identity in Christ manifests itself as we live out our faith. The identifying marker of the children of God is living in selfless love: “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35)
