Get Over It! (1 John 2:7-11)Tommy Boring, September 14, 2014
Part of the Does He Abide Within? series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We are to love with all of our heart. It's easier said than done at times. Love is an action. John 13:24 It's difficult to love everyone. 1 John 4:10 The challenge is to love those that are unlovable. The greatest example of love was when God gave His only son for our sin sacrifice. If you're born again, the love of God lives inside you. Christ loved us when we were sinners and so should we with others. The love of God goes beyond our normal way of thinking. Think about how you love your enemy. Would you want God to love you that way? If you've lived any length of time, you've had your love broken by someone. God loves ALL sinners, even the ones that hate you. If you can't love your enemy, you need to make sure that Gods love is truly in you. The flesh says, revenge is mine, but a Christian can't live that way. 1 Cor 13:4-8

1 John 2:7-11
7Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. 8Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. 9He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. 10He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. 11But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. (KJV)
