Labour in Love: 1 January 2014

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. — Galatians 6: 2

Message

We prepare ourselves for the return of Christ by acting in love. We begin the New Year in the awareness that the Lord has given us another period of grace in order to prepare ourselves for the return of Christ. Last year Chief Apostle Leber put the emphasis on professing our faith. I urge us all to continue on this path by embracing a special way of professing our faith. Jesus said: “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” – John 13: 35. Faith in Jesus Christ is demonstrated in deeds that are born out of love (Galatians 5: 6). Hence this year’s theme: Labour in love!

Core Points

Bearing one another’s burdens is part of our preparation for the return of Christ.

  • We help the sorely afflicted.
  • We show solidarity.
  • We help along in the work of God.
  • We do good to those around us.
  • We are prepared to forgive.
