MORNINGTIME 2799
 
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. In 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. Beloved, if God so loved us, WE OUGHT ALSO TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, GOD DWELLETH IN US, and HIS LOVE IS PERFECTED IN US.  Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because HE HATH GIVEN US of HIS SPIRIT. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. GOD IS LOVE; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.  Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him, because he first loved us. IF A MAN say, I love God, and HATETH HIS BROTHER, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, HOW CAN HE LOVE GOD whom he hath not seen? And THIS COMMANDMENT have we from him, That HE WHO LOVETH GOD LOVE HIS BROTHER ALSO. 1 John 4:7-9,11-13,16-21. That's about as clear as you can get. If you Love God, you WILL Love your brother. And "brother" here is not a fellow Believer who believes just like you, no, Brother, here, means all mankind in all the world, Saved, AND sinner alike. Christ died FOR ALL. Christ desires to SAVE ALL. So we are to LOVE ALL. Think of God's Love like water and you (when you were a lost sinner), as an old dried out sponge. As soon as you got Saved, that Love of God, the water, saturated you and your sponge swelled full of God's Love towards you. Now, there is NO WAY you can withhold that Love, water, from anyone. In Christ, it's IMPOSSIBLE to  "love" who you want, and not "love" all the rest, and still think you will, Be Blessed.
