When you allow Jesus to come into your heart, it results in a deep care for the people in our world. Romans 12:15 challenges us to “rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep,” because of the Holy Spirit. Caring for others shows that we are Jesus’ followers (John 12:35).

He reminds us, “As I have love for you, you also must have love for others.”

Love given reflects love received.
