Faith: Reading from 1 John 4:20-21

I’m Christian.  I believe that our Lord and Saviour died for our sins and rose again.  I believe that there will be a second coming of Jesus Christ.  It took me a while to become a believer – though I never doubted; I just questioned.  Is that the same thing?  I never tried to disprove.  I just tried to learn more.  What I did learn is simple.  Apply the teachings of Jesus Christ to your life – NOW.  It’s never too late.


I receive a verse of the day from everyday and there are times that the verse of the day really speaks to me.  Or I take time to analyse it and apply it to my day.  I might be going through something at that moment, experiencing something that week.  Whatever it is, God does speak to me.  Here is the verse from today:


Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.


I’ve bolded and underlined what I believe is the application of today’s verse.  We love God, we love our brothers and sisters.  If we love God, we should love all of his creations – our brothers and sisters.  This is so important in today’s world as we STILL struggle with racism, hatred, jealousy of others.  Just because we look different, talk different, eat different – we should NOT HATE.  And then when this turns to violence, this is NOT LOVING GOD.  We can forgive – but we can never forget.


Have an awesome and blessed weekend!


Your brother in Christ – Jeff
