Where Real Revolution Starts

Public domain image, royalty free stock photo from www.public-domain-image.comJesus was a true revolutionary; yet not as one might think. One author put it this way. “Jesus never taught revolution, the kind with swords and battles and bloodshed. He talked about a revolution of love. Love your neighbor. Love your enemy. It’s a revolution that changes a person to be able do something even that impossible.”
Jesus told the Twelve that those around us would see Him in us through two outwardly visible signs: the way we love each other (Jn. 13:34-35) and how we work as a team (Jn. 17:20-23). Love and getting along with others is a mark of a Jesus believer because it goes against the we naturally think and act.
We have a tendency to protect “I” at all costs. Thus, even after salvation, reducing the “I” and raising up Jesus is a struggle (“we demolish pretensions” – 2 Cor. 10:5). Every person on this planet wants to be loved and accepted by someone, but it takes supernatural power to do it!
Want to be a Jesus revolutionary? Ask the Spirit to empower you today to love the person(s) in your life that are the hardest to love. Let Him show you how to express His love in practical ways so they will see Jesus in you. As you do, you’ll be part of a revolution that changes the world.
