Lectionary Studies for 1 John 4:7-21

Who does Jesus hate?

What a strange question.  However, if Jesus dwells within our hearts and we hate, are we not exposing our Lord to our hate?

The epistle passage for this Sunday reminds us that God is not about hate.  Hate is rooted in the emotions of the Fall.  Hate is destructive to our spiritual lives.  Hate can make us numb to the conviction and comfort of the Holy Spirit.

I expect tomorrow’s lectionary group will take on this isssue.
