¶620.5   Love of Others

¶620.5        Love of Others

Growth in Christ requires taking responsibility to love others, all of whom are loved by God and made in His image.  The quality of a Christian’s relationships with others affects the quality of their own lives. Growth in Christ requires readiness to mend relationships both with God and with others (Ephesians 4:32-5:2). The Ten Commandments, summarized into two commandments by Jesus, teach the nature of our relationships with God, others and ourselves (Luke 10:25-28).  Christians will express their love both by deeds of kindness (Matthew 25:31-46) and by personal words of witness (Acts 1:8) that point to Christ as the embodiment of God’s love and the Saviour of the world.
