1 John 4:16 (NKJV) And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

Our love for God and our obedience to God are inseparably intertwined. We cannot love God without abiding in Him. Just as our love for God and our love for the brethren, all who belongs to Christ, are interwoven together. You cannot say that you love God when you hate your brother or sister in Christ, or even hold a grudge against them or have any animosity towards them. We simply cannot abide in God’s love without loving those who He loves. If God is in us then we must love one another in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. For “He who does not love does not know God, for God is love” (1 John 4:8 NKJV). This is how you know if you are a true child of God. Do you truly love all your brothers and sisters in Christ? And the key word is “All”. Do you at least have a concern for them and would you lovingly help them? Friend, if you love God, then you must love those who He loves.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
