You shall love your neighbor as yourself

“For the whole Law [concerning human relationships] is complied with in the one precept, You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself. [Lev. 19:18.]”‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:14‬ ‭AMP‬

As believers in Christ our righteousness is found through faith in Jesus Christ. Our righteousness is not found in the law. But to sum up the entire law we are called to love our neighbors as ourselves. Jesus said they would know us by our love. The love of God cannot be counterfeited, the only way someone can walk in the love of God is through the power of the Holy Spirit. 

The Lord told us that the love of most would grow cold. As sin continues to increase on the earth the hearts of many will grow cold and hard. What will distinguish us as believers in Jesus Christ is our love for one another. Let us draw near to the Lord each day and continue to grow and walk in His love in greater ways. As we grow in the character of Christ we simply grow in His love.
