“We have a tendency to become that which we love and hate.”
Yahshua said, but I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those prosecute you, and pray for those who spitefully use and persecute you. Matthew 5:43-44 – MEV
Note: Loving, blessing, doing good and praying for people who despise, oppose and provoke us will involve a better understanding of the nature and character of Yahweh, and it will involve responding in a way that represents HIS heart at all times.
> It is important for us to LOVE what Yahweh LOVES and HATE what Yahweh HATES.
Yahweh is SPIRIT and LOVE. Therefore we must learn to respond out of the nature and character of Yahweh, which is the SPIRIT OF LOVE.
Ref. John 4:24 & 1 John 4:8
It is equally important for us to LOVE the WAY He loves at all times. Loving Him, Ourselves and One Another in and by the LOVE and Grace of YAHWEH.
James 1:27 – Real, true religion from God the Father’s perspective is about caring for the orphans and widows who suffer needlessly and resisting the evil influence of the World. The Voice
The worship that God wants is this: caring for orphans or widows who need help and keeping yourself free from the world’s evil influence. This is the kind of worship that God accepts as pure and good. ERV
How can we say we love Yahweh and hate our brother?
How can we say we love ourselves and not others?
How can we say we love Yahweh, ourselves and others, while neglecting the orphans and widows in this world?
How can we honestly claim to hate what Yahweh hates and continue to be influenced by the EVIL of this world? Just asking!
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is NOT in him. 1 John 2:15 – MEV
