1 John 2:9 (VOICE) Anyone who says, “I live in the light,” but hates his brother or sister is still living in the shadows.
Beloved, be known by your love. Love is an action. Love costs you something. Love brings light and disperses darkness. Look to Me to see how love is defined “For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 NLT).
Refuse to withhold your heart, beloved. Love is always the right choice, but true love is not always gentle, so ask Me for wisdom on how to love and let Me teach you. And in the moments of sacrifice, heartache and longing; remember I have felt that pain as well, and press into Me – knowing that you are sharing My sufferings and understanding My heart more deeply, but refuse to relinquish love for it is always the right choice.
