Loving Someone is loving God


Maybe….

If we are made in God’s image and can only do good by His hand working in us and changing us, then maybe loving someone, someone who loves God and allows God to work in them, is really loving God, because what you love about them is their personality, which is made in God’s image, their goodness, which only God can produce in them, and because you love these qualities you are loving God’s reflection of Himself, and are loving Him in the act of loving them. Therefore when we love our friends or our family we are loving God, and maybe then we cannot love anyone more than we love God because we are loving God when we are loving them.

 

Matthew 25:40

About Hudson

I live in Indiana. I enjoyed playing soccer all four years of high school. I co-captained and won the MVP award my senior year. I also have created many film projects, the most extensive of which won a film festival award for Best Cinematography during my senior year. It is a 10-minute short film called Café Encounter and can be watched on YouTube. I have been actively involved in my youth group and am a leader for a middle school boys group on Sunday mornings. I was also blessed to go on two mission trips to Belize and Ecuador respectively. Belize really awakened my faith in Christ and pushed me towards active obedience and love for God. Ecuador gave me a life-changing perspective on missionary work and has helped me to view myself as a missionary in my every day life, but especially with the intent of being a missionary to my work industry.
