So many things has happened in the last few months that breaks my heart to see. The Lord tells us to love one another. If we truly loved one another, there wouldn’t be things happening in the world that are unrighteous. Lately I have seen things on social media sites where people are rioting, fighting against one another, cursing one another, killing, stealing, etc…. As a Christian, we need to learn to truly love one another. Learn compassion, learn to forgive others of their trespasses against us.
God tells us in 1 John 4:7-17-Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
If you can’t love your brother who you can see, how can you love God, whom you haven’t seen. 1 John 2:9-11-He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. 1John 4:20-If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
Love goes a long way. It isn’t just showing kindness but helping others in need. If you can, give to others that are in need. If you don’t have money to give, give your time. Take someone to the store or doctor appointment if they need a ride. 1 John 3:17-But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
