One Does Not Come Without the Other

If we are born again, we will love as Jesus loved. First John 4:7 says, “beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God, and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.” Because God is love, when he makes us new, we are connected to the source of all true love, the Trinity. As a result, we have the capacity, if we walk in obedience, to love God, our spouses, our children, our friends, our neighbors, and even our enemies. You have new life in Christ.
