Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. (1 John 4:7-8 NLT)
Those who are loved by Christ, love each other. John says we are the beloved of God. If we are loved then we should love others. That sounds good but not always easy to put into practice. There are some people that don’t think like us, they don’t look like us, they don’t act like us – do we have to love them? Yes. Some people are easier to love than others. We need to ask for the grace of God to love those that appear to be unlovable because Jesus died for them too.
