1 John 4:7-8 - Beloved, let us love one another, because he that loves is
from God, and everyone that loves is begotten of God and knows God. He that
does not love, does not know God, for God is love.

Part 3 ~ Expressing Divine Love Is Our Highest Priority

The love of God is not expressed to a selective group of people, but to the
whole world (John 3:16; Titus 3:4; 1 Peter 2:17; 1 John 2:2, 4:10). The
love of God causes the sun to shine upon the evil and the good, and sends
rain for the righteous and the unrighteous (Matthew 5:45; Luke 6:35). From
the wellspring of love comes mercy and forgiveness. God's nature is to
bless those who are offenders and persecutors, and those of us who have
been born of Him are called to do the same (Luke 6:28; Romans 12:14).

All of God's children are marked with the expression of God's divine love
and holy nature. Unfortunately, there is probably not a more neglected
subject among His people. Above all other things, the expression of this
unfailing love must be manifested among us if the world is to know we have
been begotten of Him (John 13:35; 1 John 2:5, 10, 3:11, 4:21). Above all
other things, it is our responsibility to show this love one for another -
among ourselves first, and also to the whole world. If we fail to walk in
love one for another, then we have failed at the most fundamental and
essential attribute of our calling (John 13:34, 15:12, 17; Romans 12:10,
13:8; and Galatians 5:13; 1 Thessalonians 4:9; 1 Peter 1:22; and 1 John
3:11, 23, 4:11-12; 2 John 1:5).
