John 13:34-35 (NKJV)
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
When Omolara arrived in New York City for the first time, she was stranded because she couldn’t reach her cousin who was to pick her up from the airport. She arrived 24 hours earlier than scheduled. Because of some issues with her bank, to her surprise, she couldn’t spend her money because it was still held up in her country’s local currency.
When it became clear to Omolara that she was going to be stranded in the airport with very little money, she called her pastor and told him of her plight. Thankfully, her pastor knew some brethren in that city that he could call. One of them had to leave her office early and drive for three hours to the airport to go and pick up Omolara.
When Omolara’s cousin eventually got through to her 24 hours later, he was surprised to see that she was already comfortable and well settled. Because of the genuine love that he saw among Christians that day, he eventually became a believer.
The Warren’s took Omolara into their home because through the testimony of a Christian brother they knew, they were sure she too was a sister.
‘I was a stranger, and you invited me in’ is one of the things the Lord will say to His sheep on that day (see Matt 25:34-40). Christians are people who love each other. It is in our divine DNA (1 John 4:7-8).
Go into today remembering that as far as heaven is concerned, anyone who is truly born of God will love his Christian brethren (see 1 John 3:10).
