1 John 4:7 - 8.
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
ARE YOU BORN AGAIN? How do you know? Who do you love, your brother, your sister or Mum or Dad, your car or house or even your pet horse? Is that true love?
No, even someone who is a sinner can do that too. Let me tell you what true love is: True love is loving someone who hates you and loving someone who you don't even know. Or even someone who wants to steal your car. Or even your life savings and your wife too.
It maybe someone who wants to kill you.
I'm sure you'll agree it is something that's very hard to do and virtually impossible I would say wouldn't you?
But you know what, when you follow God, it is something that comes from him to you. Something evolution cannot create or understand, it's an accident made from nothing that's what they say.
You see, Gods heart is full of love which he wants to share with you. The more you love God the more he will bless and change you.
By loving God you start to love others that don't love you. How can that be? I don't know but it's true. It is only something that God can do in you.
Yes, now you know who you are too. If you can love others who may want to hurt you then you are a child of God, born again with the love of the Father who is living in you.
You know God and God knows you isn't that simply amazing!!! It doesn't happen overnight, but it slowly happens by God's great power and his great might.
The more you trust God the more God can do to help you love others that don't love you. Now look at yourself, and see what God can do, You are different from the rest, there's not many like you. O dear God how I love you.
