Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
The challenge that Paul gave the church at Ephesus was great. He wanted them, the Holy Spirit wanted them, to walk in love. They were to love each other like the Lord had loved all of them. Jesus gave His life as an offering and sacrifice for us and we are to do that for them!
I wonder how many of our churches feel this same love for each other. I wonder how much we have turned our doctrine and separation into a stick to beat each other with. How much do we honestly try to walk with our brothers like the Lord told us to! Do we love them like our brothers and sisters?
