Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God, and every one that loveth is born of God and knoweth God.And the second is like, unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
I am writing asking us to think on love and ask ourselves why is there so much hate in the world when God is love? Being that hate is a sin and sin tends to puff itself up to appear larger than what it is giving many the false narrative that the world is being overcome by hate. Could it be that Satan knows that his time is nearing the end and he is trying to win the battle against God? All these people spewing hate have no God in them, or their god is one of hate?
Whatever the answer is, let us think on these things; God is love and all who is of God is love also. We love one another as ourselves in obedience to the second commandment. We are commanded to love one another by Jesus Christ Himself. There is more love in the world than it is hate; therefore, believers, let us continue in love and manifesting the love of God and His righteousness. We are the lit candles of this world shining bright the light, the truth, and the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Let us not forget these things: (1) God is in control; the battle is His as He has never lost a battle. (2) God knew these days were coming that His warriors would be engaged in spiritual warfare; therefore, He dressed us for the battle (Ephesians 6:10-18). Included in our war gear is faith, the gospel of peace, the helmet of salvation, truth, the breastplate of righteousness, and the sword of the Spirit, praying as we go. Lastly, know this that the God in us is much bigger than the god of this world; therefore, sin, hate and all unrighteousness has no-win because the God of the universe will bring forth justice and His righteousness will prevail.
Know this, love trumps hate.
