God’s goal for us is for us to love our brothers and sisters in Jesus, the Messiah. When we receive Jesus into our lives, we come into the light of God’s truth.
Jesus was perfectly clear on this. Love is a choice. Love is not a feeling. John challenges us to go beyond not liking others. We are to focus being concerned with the well being of others. We must get beyond our selfish views and treat others with respect. This isn’t a matter of affection but a matter of action. God will help us. Jesus, the Messiah, will show us the way. God is love.
When we don’t love, we show that we are still in the dark.
May I walk in the light. May I love my brothers and sisters.
“Anyone who claims to live in God’s light and hates a brother or sister is still in the dark.” ~~Apostle John (1 John 2:9 The Message)
