God’s calling card is Love. Unconditional love that He just pours out over the undeserving. Undeserving people like me and you. A love so deep and so wide that once we taste it, we will do anything to possess it. His love gives life, it changes lives. Love is the absolute essence of God. The way I see it, is that if we are to become imitators of God, we need to become His calling card, the embodiment of love.
We all know the verses from 1 Corinthians 3:3-13, the famous love chapter in the bible. “4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.8 Love never fails….13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. This is the model of our ministry.
