We cannot truly begin to understand Christ’s love until we let it flow through us, both to other believers and to those who aren’t.  Loving enough to get past ourselves, step out and be the tool God uses to help shape fellow believers or the shepherd that leads lost sheep home.  Christ’s love for people, that lives within us when he does, should push us beyond our own comfort.  We can’t fully understand love until we give it.  We can’t truly understand the forgiveness and mercy we have been given until we give it ourselves; in faith, without exception, to everyone who comes into our lives- many of whom will not deserve it.  Until we share all of the good things we have been given, we cannot truly understand what they mean or the power they have in our lives.
