    A Word from Pastor Garrett

    What’s love Got to do with it?

    He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 1 John 4:8

    To "know" God requires a person to have a relationship with Him, something John stresses often in this letter to Christian believers.

    Love comes from God, so those who demonstrate love show they have fellowship with Him. The inverse is also true. The person who does not demonstrate love does not know God. John has already highlighted this message in previous chapters. However, the emphasis in this section is that God is love. Love is essential to Christian living because it is an essential part of God's identity.

    This love includes God's creation of all things, read Genesis chapters 1 and 2 , sustaining all things read
    Colossians 1:16–17, and redeeming believers through His Son Jesus, read 1 John 4:9. God is love, and He serves as the creator and sustainer of love in our world. Empowered by Jesus, we can experience God's love and share it with others through our lives.

    Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    When love is involved those spiteful thoughts turn into something more gentle and kind. The love that you possess will not allow you to hold on to hatred for a person or condemn them as an enemy. This unique and powerful force will permit you to begin viewing your newfound friend in a more positive light. Instead of looking at them and only seeing the bad you will also be able to see the good. 

    Dr. King was well aware that you have enemies for a reason. Transforming them into friends, people that you can trust and rely on, is a hard task that will test your mental strength and fortitude. Without God it not only hard but impossible. Trust is difficult to establish and becomes even more of a struggle when it has been broken and must be rebuilt. You must find a way to look beyond the bad things that were done and accept that all people have some evil or misgiving in them. No one is perfect, and accepting this fact allows one to have a better, less biased view. Your enemy is most likely your enemy because he or she did something that you did not agree with, but oftentimes friends also commit acts that you do not wholly condone. What keeps the friendship going is the forgiveness or acceptance that happens between the two parties, and the same can happen between people who consider themselves enemies. Everyone has enemies because it is impossible to live life in a way that pleases everybody. 

    So what’s live got to do with it, it is everything.  Love is one of many traits that identifies you having fellowship with Jesus. 1 John 4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?” In that God is love, love is a requirement for those who claim to love God.
