June 24- 1 John 3

When I read verses like v. 15- “15 Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.“-  I wonder how groups like Westboro Baptist Church can believe they are in the will of God and walking in his love.  They must narrowly define “brother and sister,” but Jesus taught us in the parable of the Good Samaritan you cannot do that.

    I’m very encouraged by the last part of verse 24: “And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.” While I often struggle to recognize the Spirit, I find great comfort in the remarkable and sparkling insights he gives me on occasion. We all know that “intermittent reinforcement” is the most powerful kind and it works for me!
