According to one story a man went to a Christian teacher to ask for instructions on how he could be a better Christian. The teacher replied that he didn’t have any help for that but that he could give a remedy which would create love towards God. “That is what I really need,” replied the man. The teacher answered back, ”It is love for your neighbours, and for all people.” We cannot directly love almighty God except by thanking him. Another way to love God is to love that which God loves: sinful people. It is not a reward or approval for getting to heaven but a gesture of thanksgiving to God for saving us. Read up more on this by accessing Ari Savuoja’s sermon “Love is” from 20 October 2019. (BF)
