He Who Hates His Brother Lives in Fear

Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

~ 1 John 2:9-11, ESV ~

We are more generous toward other people when we are capable of finding our authentic self and living out in the divine Love God has revealed. Yet, there are times when we lend ourselves in thinking too much about what is wrong with others and how they ought to change. That is a form of hatred. If we are searching for what we have power to change within our families, in our friendships, within our communities, and society, we are more than capable of learning to be big enough to set aside our own fears.

Do we bear ill will toward other people? Honest within ourselves begets a sense of fear in how we may relate to other people. What is it that we truly are afraid of when it comes to our relationship with God and others? Perhaps others may fear us in the same way we may fear them. When we live in God’s divine love for Him, for ourselves, and for other people, the hatred resolves without any further effort. It is only when we come to that place of honesty and transparency between God and us where we are able to confront our hatred and fears of other people. Only then are we in tuned to the authentic self.

Today, let us remember we have the inner strength through Jesus Christ to face our fears and not send them outward as hatred toward others.

  1. Facing fear(s), gets one over them!

    Even though from time to time they can start up again, being in unredeemed bodies that is.

    As Paul said in Romans 7, about sin that is in us, is not us. What?

    It is not me, the new man given me is the new me, where as this flesh I am in, does nopt agree, seeing how Satan or just evil has the control of that still

    Read it, see it and thank God all the deeper for this truth given us to stand in, while it hurts still
    The new has come that I forget about easily, yet not as easily at when I first turned to Father for peace and serenity in Son.

    I have to say, I got a lot of adversities, before seeing and not as if I see, not completely yet, but I have Father in risen Son to stand in whenever I do not see clearly and this body takes me over again as has done, but yet, is dead and held alive now new in new life given us in belief that does not quit, even as Job would not curse, deny God he saw to wait, no matter what troubles came. Never liked the troubles, but yet would not deny God, as God said Job would not deny him.
    Can this be our job to not deny God, no matter what, even though might have while in troubles on the journey of death here on earth.

    I think to stand in belief on the way even as Stephan did in Acts when they stoned him to death for saying God does not live in buildings, as man still tends to think and goes to a building or two to be in touch with God

    Father now by risen Son the Christ for us as risen, once anyone believes this and wants new life will go through adversities first.

    All that is, is God’s enemies trying to keep you from his unfathomable love that onely he freaks once he sees you are serious

    For there are those of contention and strive, and those that are serious. Either way as Paul stated I will be content either way for Christ is preached to get Father free in belief to he is risen and not wary from this truth he is alive forever for us to be new in him by Father’s gift to us

    Acts 20:21

    As Brother you know this too as many here as well, I am just excited, in thanksgiving and praise he does not judge me on my ignorance, and inability to be perfect,
    So he was for us all by Son the one and only mediator between Father God and man

    Jesus the mediator

    Thank you, I need him always, and when I do not remember this I get buffeted to return to humility thinking, thought I know

    2 Cor.12:7-10
