A lot of times we look at what people are doing for us instead what we are doing for them. The bible instruct us to look out for the needs of one another look for ways to serve others, and to walk in love with each other. In John 13:34-35, Jesus command us to love. a new command I give to you. love one another as i have loved you, so you must love one another. by this all men will know that you are my disciples, If you love one another. Love is very important in our life, every person needs love, people in the world are hungry for love, they are looking for a source of real, genuine love. We as chrisian have an apportunity to give that love, which the world desperately desires. So instead of worrying about the love you are not getting, decide and give the love you should give. Jesus calls us his disciple, the light of the world. You are the light of the world a city on a hill cannot be hidden . neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl instead they put it on its stand and gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way let your light shine before men, that they may see you good deed and praise your father which is in heaven. If you want christ in you then you must love

Today, we are interpreting the bible our own way. The denominational setting of our gatherings today has put walls that separate us. Each denomination is seen as an empire to be defended by the so-called "general overseer" and founder of each ministry. There cannot be true expression of love in such settings. We read in the bible that the members of the early church had all things common. Why do we find this impracticable today? Many believers believe (at least in theory) in the priesthood of every believer. Why do we deny this belief in practice? With the clergy-laity dichotomy and where the clergy look at themselves as superior to the so-called the laity, can true love find expression? The truth is that we are all sheep in the pasture of the chief shepherd, the Lord Jesus Christ. The clergy at best are just undershepherds and I hope they see themselves as that (most don't!). In true church meeting, every person irrespective of position, class, race, etc. should be willing to learn from others that the Lord himself may choose to communicate through. May God help us.
