Daily Bread – July 27, 2022 (The Fourth Day – Genesis 1:14-19) John 13:34 – I give to you a new commandment, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, that you also love one another. Loving Just Like God Loves The New Covenant has a new commandment: we are to love one another – just like God has loved us. The life of God has been given to us, and the life of God is defined by the love of God (1 John 4:7-8). The Old Covenant only demanded what was within reach of human nature and the community of His covenant people – which was to love one’s neighbor as themselves (Leviticus 19:18; Mark 12:32-33). Today, with a change in nature and the love of God poured into our hearts by the Holy Ghost, we can love just like God loves. This love of God reveals to all men how we are the disciples of the Lord Jesus. This kind of love is the proof we are born of God (John 15:10-14; 1 John 2:6,9-11, 4:7-8,12,20-21). We know we have passed from death to life because we love the brethren with the pure, fervent, and unfailing love God has loved us with (1 John 3:14,23). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
