What God Wants

Read the Bible in a year by reading First John 2 today.
John wrote of one of the greatest things that God wants from us, saying,
He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him.
(1John 2:10).
God wants us to love one another. We offer excuses for not doing it, but He does not want excuses, He wants love, even as He loved us. Could He have offered excuses for not loving us? Think about it. If you were God and you saw every person on earth sinning, what would you do? Would you kill the human race? Yet, that is not what He did. Instead, He let the human race kill His Son. He did it that we may have life.
God loves us, but He wants us to love one another, especially in the church. He also does not want us to sin and He does not want us to cause our brother to sin. The passage from John showed that if we love one another, there will be no cause for stumbling in us, that is, we will not sin and we will not cause our brother to sin.
Friends, love one another.
