Recently, it was said of a celebrity pop preacher that “he loves God, but not people.”
Sorry, but that can’t happen.
Not according to Jesus.
Not according to John.
Read 1 John from beginning to end and ask yourself if someone can love God and not love others, especially members of the body of Christ.
If a person doesn’t love others, he/she doesn’t love God.
They may think they love God, but they may love the idea of God instead.
This is yet another evidence of the shallow and pathetic state of Christianity today.
One real evidence of love for God is that when you hear Jesus Christ declared with power, anointing, and authority, you begin to love those who know Him, and you also have a deep appreciation for those messengers who proclaim Him in glory.
If you’re new to the podcast, I did my 102nd episode on my unforgettable meeting with A.W. Tozer. I wish every child of God would listen to it.
