Know God? Love others?

If we have a problem loving others, then we could have a significant relationship issue with the Creator of the world. The Apostle John said that if we don’t love others, then we don’t even know God. Why? Because when we know God, we are so completely changed that it results in sincere love for others. We can’t hate because we are changed by the love of God. We freely forgive because we have been forgiven. We lay down our own rights in deference to others because Christ laid down His rights for us.

Has the love of God changed you?
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. - 1 John 4:7-8
