Have you ever seen a sign that reads something to the effect of “Love people and let God sort them out.” There is sometruth to that. After all, God does call us to love people. Colossians 3:14 tells us to put on love. What powerful imagery – that we would wear love as if it’s our favorite outfit or, even deeper than that, our very own skin. Paul is teaching here that love binds a bunch of other virtues together, in perfect unity. When we have love, we can also wear compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and peace. We are able to bear with each other and forgive each other. Love does that. Yet, we can’t neglect how this paragraph in Colossians begins. Paul is speaking to Believers here. He calls us God’s chosen people who are holy and dearly loved. God loves us. As a result, we can love others. But He calls us to be holy. He calls us to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others – and those who accept Jesus as Savior and Lord must also be holy. When I hear people talking about love, I shout “YES!” And, yet, I can’t help but wonder what kind of love they’re talking about. Are we compassionate enough to tell others about Jesus? Are we kind enough to tell them about Jesus? Are we humble enough?Gentle enough? Peaceful enough? Forgiving enough? Are we loving enough? There is no love greater than Jesus laying down His life for us, and we can show love no greater than telling others about His great sacrifice for our sins. If we don’t have love, we have nothing. If we don’t share the reason for that love, they have nothing. Our love for others is not what saves them. What saves them is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. If we don’t love people enough to tell them that, do we love them at all? By all means, this can be slow going. This can take relationship building. This can take waiting for an open door. This absolutely takes prayer. But God is working. The question we have to ask ourselves is – will we join Him?
