Today's Verse : 1 John 4:21


April 21, 2012

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