Love without limitations.....I am still a mess in the process!

John 13:34 - A new Commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another, as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

John 15:12 - This is My commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you.

John 15:17 - These things I command you, that ye love one another.

Does that mean everyone?....everyone? The stinky guy who crosses my path periodically? That women who is so incredibly annoying? Those teens on the street corner cussing up a blue storm (sometimes at me). Wow....that is so difficult (in my own strength, I think impossible). So I just can't talk about it. I must pray for this to manifest itself in my Life. I want to see it as fruit in my Life. If I don't exhibit it, is it Him? Love? I want to be that conduit of His Life, His Love which is Him. No guilt.....just Him. Let me Love unconditionally, freely from the bonds which hold me back from allowing Him to move in and through me at His will. Too easy, says you....I say it might be the hardest thing I have ever been asked to allow Him to do.

I'd say it's the most impossible thing. :) But with God all things are possible. I want to love like this too, unconditionally. I can't make it my next big 'project' or the next thing I'll try to work on. It's gotta be His life in me, His life working in His body around the globe.
