Bible Study Plan 2019

Today we read:
Deuteronomy 3 & 4

-Food for thought day 95-

• 1 John 3:14-15
• 1 John 4:8

The evidence of being a child of God is walking in God’s love. Going to church does not make us Christians. For The Word of God says:

“We know that we have passed over out of death into life by the fact that we love the brethren (our fellow Christians). He who does not love abides (remains, is held and kept continually) in [spiritual] death. Anyone who hates (abominates, detests) his brother [in Christ] is [at heart] a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding (persevering) within him.” 1 John‬ ‭3:14-15‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

The Bible says: “… we know that we have passed from death unto life because of…” This is not a thinking, but knowledge born out of experience.

This means anyone who has hatred in his or her heart against anybody, is likely not a child of God. When we hate people, we are no different from someone who has the ability to commit murder. Hatred is another way of resentment. The Bible states clearly: “… for God so love the world that He gave…”

Though this world is full of wickedness, God’s love for it compelled Him to sent Jesus Christ to pay the price of evil or wickedness in this world with His life.

This is the reason why we must allow the love of God to dominate our lives daily.

God is love, not hate, so we’re children of love; for this reason, we know we’re born again not because we go to church, but because we’re controlled by the love of God.

“For the love of Christ controls and urges and impels us, because we are of the opinion and conviction that [if] One died for all, then all died;” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:14‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Love is our nature and way of living. Without it, life will be sour and bitter for everyone.

Let’s be an expression of God’s love to someone in Jesus’ Name.

Many blessings in Jesus’ Name.

Think and Act!!!!
