Love Doesn't Discriminate

"Love doesn't discriminate between the sinners and the saints." 

Many times, Christianity is branded as a group of close minded people who force their faith on others and hate on people who don't share their same views. The sad thing is, there are "Christians" who do that, and give a bad name to those of us who are following God's will.

I am a strong believer in loving everyone, those who deserve it and those who don't. I mean, look at everyone on this planet! We are all sinners, and we are all undeserving of such a holy and perfect God. 
Magical forest:

A lot of people that I have talked to believe that God wants them to shove faith down people's throats, forcing salvation on those who are not ready, but I believe that it all comes down to love. 
I don't mean to sound like a weirdo, *hippie voice* "It all comes down to love, man."
If we love the sinners and the saints, treating them as God would treat us, then we are spreading the good news by our actions. When we quietly and patiently love those who are sinning, we are showing them what God did for us. 

"Let all that you do be done in love." - 1 Corinthians 16:14

He commands us to love everyone, to let His love fill us and spill out into the rest of our lives. If love were an emotion, it would be harder to act on, but it is a choice. Love is patience, longsuffering, kindness, being joyful, peaceful, etc. 

"My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth." - 1 John 3:18
God commands us to not just talk about love, but to act on it, showing it to every man, to the sinner and the saint.

  2. Yesss, this is beautiful and perfect and I couldn't agree more. It frustrates me so much that there are Christians who are super judgy and force their beliefs on others and basically do NOTHING of what Jesus said. He didn't say to love people we agreed with. He said everyone.
    This post = golden. <3

  3. Love is a wonderful thing and it's amazing how we can love because God has poured out his love into us :) And He loves us so much that he sent his only son to die for a world of imperfect sinners so that we could live in perfect happiness with Him. WOW. God is amazing. Pretty sure He deserves all the awards for best everything cause, ya know, He's perfect in every possible way and loves us to the ends of the earth. Thank you Jesus! (Also when I read the title of this post I may or may not have burst into song XD)
