James 2:8 (NET) But if you fulfill the royal law as expressed in this scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well.
When Robin was in the university, he had a roommate called Caleb. Caleb was a believer who lived according to the word of God. Robin made up his mind that he was not going to get along with Caleb because Caleb’s life convicted him, but when he fell sick and none of his party friends showed up to see how he was doing, it was this roommate he treated so badly that was there for him. This was what broke him and he eventually accepted the Lord Jesus.
Robin’s roommate could win him for the Lord because he lived in accordance with the royal law of our eternal kingdom.
Loving your neighbor as yourself means treating people the way you would want to be treated. It means talking about people the way you would want to be talked about even when you’re in the wrong.
From today’s Bible verse, we see that the believers who do well are those who obey the royal law of our eternal kingdom which states that we should love our neighbors as ourselves.
Go into today remembering that it is the believers who do well that will be told “well done! Good and faithful servant”. A believer who does a lot of “kingdom work” without practical love for his neighbor will discover that his work amounted to nothing (see 1 Corinthians 13: 1-3).
Prayer: Lord, help me truly walk in love and radiate your nature. Amen
