Love for the “Other”

February 10, 2019 ()

Bible Text: Deuteronomy 10:17-20, Galatians 3:23-29, Hebrews 13:1-2 |


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.”
