..and walk in love as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us as an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling savour.

The concept of Love is sometimes seen as overstretched because we are yet to interpret it by our actions.

Walking in love means continuing in selfless love, to walk in the commands of God, and in obedience to His Word. God is love, His very nature is defined by His love. Everything He does is out of love, including the creation of man and the universe as revealed in Genesis chapter one.

One can only love like Christ if he or she is with the presence of the Holy Spirit. On the Pentecost Day, the Holy Spirit came to live with us and in us, and has given us the grace to love.

In our anchor scripture, we are called to imitate Christ in the way He loves. His great love for us led Him to sacrifice His Life so that we might live. Our love for others should be of the same kind; love that goes beyond mere affection to self- sacrificing service.

As much as the Holy Spirit enables us, we are encouraged to walk in love. When we walk in love, a lot of vices around us will be expunged from our lives, families, churches, Nations and the World at large. If there’s love among us, there will be no gossip, bitterness against one another, no kidnapping, killings, envy and all of the negativity that makes life unbearable. In the end, the World will be a better place. This can only be possible if all Christians will live and walk in love wherever we find ourselves. Love is more important than all the spiritual gifts exercised in the body of Christ. It is love that make our actions and gifts more useful. Love is the gift of the Holy Spirit made available to all. Let us utilize this gift and walk in love.

Brethren, God has not called His own to seek Him in vain: Walking in love and in obedience to God is rewarding. It attracts God’s blessings, it helps one to identify with Jesus and makes you a carrier of God’s Presence.


  • Without love, all we do is a show- off and noise making.
  • When we walk in love, it brings about fulfilled and we impact lives.


  • Lord, make me Your instrument of love.
  • Help me to love without counting the cost.
