《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “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.” (1Jh 4:20)
Meditation one: How do you know that you are a person who loves God? The only proof is whether you have love and have the action of loving others. The genuineness of loving God is not simply a matter of what the mouth says, but is a matter of what action to take. If one can’t love the people he/she has seen, then it is much harder to truly love the invisible God. People are created in the likeness of God. Those who truly love God will never not love others.
Meditation two: What is the command we have received from God? It is to love God and people with all our hearts. We must draw inspiration from loving God to love our brethren, and we should love our brethren as the decent action of loving God. How truly we love God can be testified by how much we love the weakest brethren and how we treat the people around us, the family, and the brothers and sisters at church. Whoever different in says and deeds is a liar.
Prayer: Thank God, we realize the significance of love because of Your love. From time to time, my spirit indeed is willing but the flesh is weak so I make Your love idled inside me. Lord, please forgive my incompetence of love and forgive my weakness. I also pray that the Holy Spirit fills in me and rules me. I am willing to obey the guidance of the Holy Spirit and live out a life of loving God and loving people. I pray in the victorious name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
