Loving God’s People

Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit
unto unfeigned love of the brethren,
see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently.
1 Peter 1:22

As believers in Jesus Christ we ought to be walking in harmony and holiness, 
and yet we often struggle with our relationships with one another - we struggle with showing love.
Unfortunately, we don’t always get along with everyone,
but from God’s divine point of view there is only one body.

There is one body, and one Spirit,
even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
One God and Father of all, who is above all,
through all, and in you all.
Ephesians 4:4 - 6

. . . unto unfeigned love of the brethren.

We should not attempt to “manufacture” love,
but the the love we share with each other must be generated by the Holy Spirit.
This is not only a spiritual love, but a sincere and fervent love.
We must strive with all of our energy to bestow love unto the brethren.
We show love to others when we treat them the same way God treats us.
It is not a matter of feeling but of willing, and this is something we must constantly work at
if we are to succeed.

. . . see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently.

pure heart ought to be in each one of us
and it should encourage us to build and maintain unity among God’s precious people.

St. Augustine said it perfectly,
In essentials, unity.
In nonessentials, liberty.

In all things, charity.
