Do we love people like Jesus loves them?Jesus loved verbs. He loved action words such as live, come, rest, learn, hear, give, go, and even die. Wouldn?t it make sense that the people who claim to follow Jesus would love the same words Jesus loved?Unfortunately, somewhere along the way someone tried to make the word Christian an adjective. So now people speak of ?Christian? books and ?Christian? music and ?Christian? schools. When people use the word Christian as an adjective instead of a noun, the word loses its meaning.

Jesus loves people, which means we should love people the way Jesus loves them: through action. Live, care, give, go?love the way Jesus does.
