The Love of Jesus in Action
“If a man says, “I love God” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And He has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother. 1 St John v. 20 & 21.
Now here John shows us how the duty to love God arises from His love for us, however our response to God’s love can be merely emotion, for one could say “I love God” as an expression of feeling. But love is not merely a feeling for it is a total attitude of the whole person towards God and those people that are God’s. Now this attitude can be tested as we look at our attitude in how we behave towards others. In other words Love in action .Our love is not only derived from God’s love for us but that love is also obedience to a direct command from God that we love one another.
The faith that allows us to love is our victory over the sin of the world.
