1 John 4:7-8 (NKJV) 7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
Love one another for love is God. This is how people will know that we are followers of Jesus Christ. We need to love all our brothers and sisters in Christ. Believers are to love one another. And the kind of love that we are to express for one another is an agape love. It is God’s love. And it is put into our hearts only by the Holy Spirit of God who dwells within us. Without God we cannot love like He loves us. Only the Spirit of God can enable us to extend God’s love, an agape love, to other believers. This is how people will know that we are born-again children of God. If we find it difficult to love other believers, or if we refuse to love other believers, meaning we hold a grudge against them, then we are not submitting ourselves to God. And we are sinning against Him. To love one another is God’s commandment, and it behooves us to obey Him. For when we love one another, we reveal God to the world, because God is love. And God’s love for us was revealed on the Cross on Calvary over 2000 years ago, when Christ shed His blood for us that we may become children of God.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
