The thing that makes the true Christian stand out from every other person on the planet is the love that is expressed through us in the strength of Christ.
As humans we have been designed to receive love and also to give love to the people that love us.
However Jesus stepped up love to a whole new level, which in turn changed the way a Christian loves, to every other person:
Rom 5:8 But God has shown us how much he loves us---it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us!
God coming down in the form of a man to die for the very people that hated him, proves that his love was on a whole different level. This is how the Christian is to stand out in a confused and dark world:
Luk 6:32 "If you love only the people who love you, why should you receive a blessing? Even sinners love those who love them!
One of the reasons why Satan has such a field day in the lives of some believers is the fact that they do not operate in this principle of God. If a person operates in true love, even though it is hard, they will also operate in true forgiveness:
1Pe 4:7 The end of all things is near. You must be self-controlled and alert, to be able to pray.
1Pe 4:8 Above everything, love one another earnestly, because love covers over many sins.
The reason why forgiveness is not an option but a command for the believer is because it is love in action:
Luk 23:33 When they reached the place called The Skull, they crucified him there with the criminals, one on his right and one on his left.
Luk 23:34 Jesus kept saying, “Father, forgive them, because they don’t know what they’re doing.” Then they divided his clothes among them by throwing dice.
How many times do we justify in our minds why we have the right to hold this and that against someone? How many times do we allow the enemy into our minds because we are missing the Helmet Of Salvation from our warfare clothes (Ephesians 6)
We are in a real battle and we face a real enemy, so if we do not recognize this, his fight against us is going to be an easy one.
However if we understand who we are and who is defending us, then we will be able to stand in the heat of battle, so that the enemy cannot defeat us.
Our greatest weapon in this battle is love and the word of God, because in his word we discover who he is and Bible is very clear on this subject:
1Jn 4:8 The person who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Parallel Business Principles
In order to truly be successful in business, you first have to serve others. The true service of others irrespective of what you are doing, has to come from a motive of love.
Many successful business people understand this concept but unfortunately many other people do not. So they are so busy having their own needs at the forefront of their mind that they neglect the very people they are supposed to be serving.
In Reliv this is very important, because if you cannot serve your customers or your distributors correctly, then you will not build a business.
You have to forgive quickly because there are many ignorant people out there and then you move on.
There are people that need our help, so we have to just go out and find them.
