Love they Neighbour

And He has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.  (1 John 4:21)

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Some things are very simple. We can’t love God and refuse to love each other. This is not hard to understand. On the other hand, some of our kinfolks in the Lord are just down right hard to love because they can be so difficult. But, we need to remember who we were when Christ died for us — powerless, ungodly, sinners, enemies (Romans 5:6-11) — yet God loved us and sent Jesus to save us. So before we whine about our “hard-to-live-with” fellow Christians, we had better give thanks that God loved us when we were sinners. Then we need to thank God for his grace by being more loving with each other.

My Prayer…Almighty God, please give me the strength, compassion, and courage to love my fellow Christians as you have loved me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
