“He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him.” 1John 2:10
When a man is walking in the light he sees all things properly and because he sees, he can easily walk in love. Get this in the right order, you don’t love so you can walk in the light: when you walk in the light you will love.
People hate because they are afraid, they are afraid because they cannot see meanings to anything; they are in some kind of darkness. But remember what Jesus said, if your eye is single your body will be full of light.
Walking in the light is walking in the His word; His voice, His ways. When you walk in the light of His leading and bidding, always on the look out of pleasing the father you will have no time to practice hate. Abiding in His ways is walking is His love.
Now, it is not enough to know His light in any and every situation; the doing is very important. Jesus said if we say we love Him then how should we demonstrate this love we have for Him? By doing His word.
So now how then can a man do His word when he doesn’t know it? When He doesn’t hear His voice or cannot recognise it even when He speaks?
Remember, Rom 5:5 says the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost. So it is the Holy Spirit that helps us. We do not try to love it flows from within because we see all things, we know the end of all things.
If you apply this principle in your life, relationship, marriage and others, you’ll walk in so much rest. You’ll see how God is so big protecting you. As long as you do His word which is light, He protects you no matter the force coming against you. That is why scriptures says perfect love cast out fear. It is because His light is so much in you that you have wisdom concerning all things. You just can’t stumble, you’ll always be on point. Now it may not look that way to others yet, but be patient they’ll soon see you were right if you have done God’s will.
God bless you.
