If you say you are a follower of Jesus, follow His instructions - let Love Rule you, not anger. God IS Love and He calls all that follow Him to love, even your enemies.
We are living at an hour of great frustration and uncertainty. If we allow fear to set in it will contaminate our ability to reason and see things God's way. We will begin to look to blame and punish, without the reasoning necessary to determine the truth. Mounting frustration and helplessness begin to cause us to want to take matters into our own hands instead of calling upon the only One able to help us.
Perfect Love casts out fear and the resulting torment that it breeds. No, fear is not the portion of the righteous. They have received divine power, perfected love from God, and the soundness of mind it breeds to enable them to resolve and overcome life’s challenges.
Love is the first commandment. God knew what He was doing when He made it such. Hate is the evil nemesis to love and life. As we who follow Christ come across those that promote and engender hate, don’t respond with hatred, pray earnestly for them and let the love of God be rich in you. There is no law greater than the law of a Love! There is no greater destroyer of life and hope than hatred spawned by unrelinquished anger.
May the Love of God prevail in the heart of our nation so that His Righteousness will overcome the divisive sin of hatred. A house or nation divided will not stand! If God has not already sent judgment to punish our hatred, we can turn back to God by obeying His commandment to love Him and one another.
