The most high desires us to love one another. How can we say we love God, and don’t love ALL people? When we truly love God, we love people despite anything because we understand that he saved us, and loved us despite all of our sins. We understand that we should be dead for all the things that we’ve done, and it’s a blessing to still be here. We understand that we have no right to be mad at anyone, because he didn’t stay mad at us. We understand that he is the only person that knows every horrible thing about us, and loves us unconditionally anyway. We understand that he loved us so much that he sent his ONLY son, a righteous lamb, to save us, and that he did NOT have to do it. We can’t talk about people and say we love God. We can’t walk around with bad attitudes and say we love God. We can’t be selfish, and say we love God. We can’t be arrogant, and say we love God. We can’t humiliate people, and say we love God. We can’t envy and say we love God. Those emotions are completely contrary to our king. How we treat people matters, if we have done that to someone, its just like we are doing it to God. How can we hate people that we can see, and say we love the most high that we have never seen? Ask him to teach you how to love, the way he loves!
Pray, and read his word! Ask him to teach you how to love! Beloved, When the bible says love thy brethren, it doesn’t mean the seed from your mother or father, it means every single person that he created.

1 John 4 “this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”

1 John 2: 9-12 “He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. ¶ I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.1 John 3: 17 But whoso hath this world’s good, and seethe his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?”

Mark 12:30-31 “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.”
