Daily word for 15 May 2017 – 1 John 4:19-21
Dear brothers and sisters,
Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 John 4:19-21 (NIV):
19 We love because he first loved us. 20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. 21 And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
If we truly claim to love God, than we must know that we can only do this by truly loving our brothers and sisters. So we also need to love those we consider our enemies. Therefore always forgive people which do you wrong and love them. It may not be easy, but for this God has given us the Holy Spirit to help us.
