The Hardest to Love…

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. – Romans 5:8

“Those who are the hardest to love, need it the most.” – That was the philosophy that I had learnt while I was a Children’s minister.

As I ponder over it today, I realize that it actually applies across the board in our life.

The Gospel of Christ is entirely powerful to save.

His Light shines bright, and darkness find no hide… but we have to be willing to partner with God for His restoring power, healing and love to prevail.

Difficult people bite.

But because God is our ultimate Boss, we’ll remain where we’re divinely appointed… in order that the refining love of Christ flow through our lives to reach out to those who are the hardest to love. That’s the core of evangelism, the core of God’s will.

Ref: “Love” by Chris Tomlin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpzoqUQY3_Y

When our hope is hard to find
And our faith is in decline
We need a cause to stand behind – love
We all want the way it feels
Time it comes and time it steals
What remains, what is real – love

[Chorus:]
There is love
There is forgiveness
There is love in times of need
When life is cold there is a promise
You will never go without…
There is love

It heals the sick
Comforts the weak
Breaks the proud
Raises the meek
In this life no guarantees…

Love is the answer
Love will find a way
When we love one another
It’s a brighter day
