He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him (1 John 2:10).
Love overcomes and conquers the world. There is no way evil can be overcome with hatred but by love. When you live in hatred, bitterness and animosity; you can never overcome your enemies. But when you learn to live in love, your enemies will bow to you whether they like it or not. The Bible says in the opening text that he who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. Of course, whenever a Christian learns to walk in love, he can never stumble in life no matter the challenges and circumstances he faces.
When you live in love, definitely God is with you. If God is with you, who can be against you? (Romans 8:31). When a Christian claims to love God, he is also expected to love his brother as well. That is why the Bible says in 1 John 4:21, “And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.” Therefore, a Christian can never claim to love God whom he does not see but fail to love his brother whom he sees everyday. Whoever lives in love is a majority because God is always with him.
Love has the capacity to overcome evil because it is the nature of God. God overcame the world through love (John 3:16). Therefore, anyone who lives in love is of God and he is born of Him. That is the reason why the Bible says in 1 John 4:7, “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.” In fact, every Christian should take note of the fact that through the power of love, he overcomes and conquers the world for Jesus Christ. All Christians should therefore avoid living their lives in hatred and vengeance, but in love forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian who wants to live his life more than a conqueror and a victor should therefore live in Christ’s love forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: Love does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil (1 Corinthians 13:5).
