John states through divine understanding that God is Love. Therefore if we are to express Love, we must do so in His Nature.
Paul agrees with John, as he states in the following:
“Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality.”
The world is waiting upon this to become true, a living, breathing example of God’s Nature. We who call upon His Name have a response to this relationship. That is none other than to share His very Life with all who are before us.
Today when we hear His voice, we must above all else, be channels for His Nature, His Life, and this is Love.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34, 35
This is the Good News that the world needs, and it is our calling.
May it be so Father, may it be so.
