“Know Love” Week 2 – Tuesday

To encourage others and us grow in our faith and understanding please be sure to post/share your comments about today’s passage in the reply bar at the bottom of the page.

Today’s Scripture: 1 John 3:11-17 (S.O.A.P 1 John 3:16-17)

11 This is the message you have heard from the beginning: We should love one another. 12 We must not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and killed his brother. And why did he kill him? Because Cain had been doing what was evil, and his brother had been doing what was righteous. 13 So don’t be surprised, dear brothers and sisters,[c] if the world hates you.

14 If we love our brothers and sisters who are believers,[d] it proves that we have passed from death to life. But a person who has no love is still dead. 15 Anyone who hates another brother or sister[e] is really a murderer at heart. And you know that murderers don’t have eternal life within them.

16 We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. 17 If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister[f] in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person?

True love comes from God. Love to a fallen man is distorted – directed towards oneself. With the love of God our love is directed towards others. When we are born again we possess a new different kind of love. We must give up our own self interests so that we can meet the needs of others. We can have an amazing impact on the world if we just let ourselves love as God loved and help those in need instead of passing them by. A selfish heart will find no comfort, but a Christlike love will bring great joy.
