Love Your Brother - Jake Heenehan
Think of how easy it is to hold grudges against people. Someone does something against us, and for months whenever we see them we are angry with them. Why is that? John tells us in 1 John 2:7-14 that we do this because we do not love our brother. On top of that, John points out that if we hate our brother we also do not love God. John points out that no one can claim to know the love of God through the Gospel and still hate his brother. Rather, the love of God motivates us to always love others regardless of what they do to us. Would we hear John’s exhortation for us to love our brothers/sisters because we love God.
