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.” 1 John 3:14 AMP
Most of the time we think because we are always present in church or always go to church, that’s what makes us born again in Christ Jesus.
The only evidence that we are children of God is love. That is the God kind of Love. This love can’t be bought with money or good conduct. This love can only be found in God Almighty. We can only have this love by receiving from Jesus Christ our Lord.
Jesus Christ came into this evil world, sent by God Almighty to give this love to all in this world. The God kind of love is already given to the world. And it can only be found in Christ Jesus. This is the love that overcomes evil in this world. It overcomes hatred towards one another in church. That’s what Jesus offered or gave to us when we accepted Him as our Lord and savior. This love and hatred does not go together.
It was the love that God Almighty gave to the world that is transforming us today.
For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.” John 3:16-17 AMP
So the love of God brings salvation to mankind. Many are sitting in church harboring offenses or hatred towards one another. Now, when we hate our fellow brother or sister in church it is a sign to us that we are dwelling in spiritual death. And he that dwells in spiritual death is not a child of God. Moreover, God is Love. He did not gave birth to hate. But He gave birth to Love. So hatred for your brother or sister is and evidence that satan is your father not God Almighty.
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 3:15 AMP
Today choose for the Love of God and release hate. Don’t let that evil seed of hate bring you to hell in Jesus Christ mighty name.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. Today I forgive all that have wronged me, acknowledging the fact that I too make mistakes and You forgive me on a daily. I let go every resentfulness against (…………….). I choose to walk in love in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
