Love is the only solution to hate, but if you are full of hate, then love cannot be manifested through you. Hatred is like a venomous snake full of poison, ready to pounce on a hopeless, and helpless victim. Hate is of the devil, and its only intention is to steal, kill, and destroy. Hatred is an infectious diseases that, if it goes unattended will totally destroy you and leads to death of some kind or another. Yes, you get temporary satisfaction for your ego, but you destroy your relationship with God and others.
In society we are so quick to hate, and seek revenge, to render an eye for an eye, when God distinctly tells us that vengeance is His, He will repay. This was why they crucified Jesus, His philosophy, and teachings, because He preached love; He told us to love our enemies, bless them who curse us, do good to them that hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use, and persecute you (Matthew 5:44).
Trust me, I know it’s not easy, because it cuts like a knife, it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth, it rips your heart out, and tears you apart. But God tells us to love, Jesus came and proved to us that it is possible, and do-able; look what they did to Him before He went to the cross, on His way to the cross, and while He was on the cross, yet His only response was a prayer, ‘Father forgive them, for they know not what they do’ (Luke 23:34). That’s love that covers a multitude of sins (Proverbs 10:12, 1 Peter 4:8), Jesus’ demonstration of love to us and for us should propel us to love others (John 15:13); The only thing we should owe each other is love; Love worked no ill (Romans 13:8-10 KJV). God’s desire is for us to put on love (Colossians 3:14); Love will never fail, it’s the greatest thing ever (1 Corinthians 13:8). From the old to the new testament, God speaks of love (Leviticus 19:18, Matthew 5:38-45, 1 Peter 3:9), so if it possible let’s love and live at peace with everybody (Romans 12:17-18).
If you don’t know the God of love, go to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do. I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to put His message out there. I pray it blesses you as it did me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
