Love One Another February 2015
For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 1 John 3:11 “Love one another.”
Those are hard words to obey when someone really rubs us the wrong way. Sometimes we decide the best we can do is to avoid that person. But God’s command is love one another. This is not easy! We want to obey God, but the person is so unlovable that we don’t even want to see the person, let alone love him or her.
There is something we can do in such a situation. If we pray regularly for that person, things will change. And it may be that the change is in us rather than in the other person. When God’s power is released through honest prayer, it is hard to harbor resentment.
