Love Like Jesus — For One of the Least: Luke 2:6-7

…the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

Luke 2:6-7

How Jesus Loved People

Jesus showed up. Jesus, The Christ, blessed us with His presence. Jesus, the One who was the Word, and was God. The One who was with God in the beginning. The One through whom all things were made. He became the Light of all mankind. (John 1:1-5)

In fact, no one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God. (John 1:18) He became flesh and made his dwelling among us. (John 1:14)

Jesus, who was God, the Creator of all things, the One who lived with the Father, Jesus, The Christ, He became one of us.

How to Love Like Jesus

That’s what Jesus did. He lowered Himself. Even though we’re but dust and ashes, Jesus came to us. He showed up. He blessed us by initiating a relationship with you, with me, with all of humankind.

You have the opportunity to do the same. You might have a desire to bless the big man on campus with your presence. Or you might have a desire to bless the most popular people with your friendship. You might want to get to know the most powerful, or the richest, or the most famous people.

But where you really have power to make an impact, is with those people who would be blown away by your company. You know who they are. That shy person. That depressed person. The kid who wears funny looking clothes. The unpopular kid. I’m talking about Raj Koothrappali from the Big Bang Theory here. Or the the guy who’s struggling financially. Or the wallflower. That person who you know will light up when you approach them.

I’m not talking about doing anything special, I’m just talking about having a conversation, showing them a little love, taking two minutes of your time and talking to them. Bless them with your presence.

Just show up.

Like Jesus did.

    Hi Kurt, A hearty welcome to ChristianBlessings family., Keep lifting The Name of Jesus, and He shall be glorified He is our Light shine for Jesus here that many shall find their way to Him. Be blessed. Looking forward to your ministry so join us and touch lives for Jesus.

    Being faithful to bless the least among us, is the Jesus way. If we are faithful in the small things, we shall have no problem with the bigger things, so too with our witness. Praise God.

  2. Welcome to the family here at ChristianBlessings Kurt. I know you will find encouragement here along with the avenue to share from the Lord.

    Thanks for this challenge. As an older woman, I find one way to show love is towards check-out girls at the supermarket. These girls receive a lot of complaints and are not treated well by many customers. They really appreciate a happy, appreciative customer. I have been able to share my faith with a number and they have been happy to accept a Gideon New Testament. Another opportunity has been to lonely/sad looking women sitting on benches in the shopping centre, who are always appreciative of a smile and a listening ear.

    We serve an amazing God who wants to use us to reach out to others with His love, mercy and grace. May we be willing to be used, considering it an enormous privilege.

    This blog post definitely does not reflect my nature. As with so many things, I need to look to Jesus to see how it’s done.

    Thank you for the welcome Amanda and I’m looking forward to reading your posts as well.
