1 John 4:7 (KJV)
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
Bidemi knew that her stepmother hated her, and before she became born again, she too hated her step mother.
As Bidemi grew in her walk with the Lord, one day she noticed that the hatred and bitterness she had towards her step mother was no longer there. She now found it easy to pray for her. She prayed that the Lord would save her and make her his child. Bidemi could not believe that she no longer hated her step mother but now only felt pity for her. After this breakthrough in her life, Bidemi observed that her doors started opening on every side. The young man who loved her but was too poor to marry her now got a very good job and was immediately ready to marry her.
Bidemi’s doors opened when her spirit started radiating the superior power of love. The power released in the life of a believer that walks in love is greater than the power released in the life of a believer who only knows faith without practical love.
Notice that 1 John 4:7 says that ‘anyone that loves is born of God and KNOWS GOD’. Knowing God is a function of spiritual maturity. One of the attributes of baby Christians is that they do not walk in love (see 1 Cor 3:1-3). But as they grow in the knowledge of God, they would naturally grow in love.
Go into today remembering that that the ability to love without expecting anything in return, and to love even your enemies, can only be found in the life of those who are born of God and know God. The presence of this love in your heart is your biggest proof that you have indeed been fathered by God (See 1 John 3:18-19).
