Usually, when we come to the topic of love in our sermons, there’s the impression that we’re on a soft and sentimental subject, one that is accommodating to our lives. But when John addressed the issue of love in 1 John 4:20-21, there was no mincing of words and no soft, easy application. He wrote, “If someone says ‘I love God’ and hates his brother, he is a liar. For he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.” Love, you see, isn’t easy; it’s just commanded.
Today, Pastor Joel Van Hoogen is going to be covering 1 John 4:20-21.
