�??So now, O Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you? Only to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the Lord your God and his decrees that I am commanding you today, for your own well-being. For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who is not partial and takes no bribe, who executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and who loves the strangers, providing them with food and clothing. You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.�?��??Deuteronomy 10:12-13, 17-19 �??Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.�?��??1 Corinthians 13:4-8, 13 �??Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offences.�?��??Proverbs 10:12 �??Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good;�?��??Romans 12:9 Love and hate: we as people of God have a conflicting relationship with these two emotions. This is because we are human, and God has given us free will to choose how we are to live. We are people who hate as well as people who love, despite what the God, Jesus, the prophets and apostles tell us what we should do in the Bible. Today, in America, hate appears to be winning. Hate can be defined as, �??intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury.�?� I believe the key word here is fear. In the United States today, there is a great sense of fear of the other. We don�??t trust those that are not like us, those we don�??t know; even the police appear to be in fear of the communities that they are called to protect and serve, which has led to even greater fear in our cities as well as deaths. The writer of Proverbs reminds of this, �??Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offences.�?� (Proverbs 10:12) �??Love covers all offences�?� is a very lofty thought but is it really achievable? And if love is achievable, how do we here in Inman, Kansas, where we appear to be insulated from the hate that appears to be sweeping the rest of the country (or are we really) make a difference? How do we change hate to love? We do it one person at a time, starting here at home using the definition of love that the Apostle Paul gives in 1 Corinthians, �??Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.�?� (1 Corinthians 13:4-8, 13) We can follow Paul�??s call of how to love here in our town, and then we can carry that same message outward to others that we interact with as we go out into the world. When we touch someone in a loving and positive way, that person touches someone else, and so on. Before you know, it we have a love movement going on that can begin to conquer the hate that is reigning havoc over our world. I don�??t think I need to go into detail on how Jesus came to earth to teach us how to love one another. We should already know that. If we don�??t, we can turn to the Gospels to find examples of Jesus loving the other. This love lead to his ultimate sacrifice: giving his life for us in love so that we may have the grace and eternal life that awaits each follower of him. The theme of the entire Bible is the self-revelation of the God of love. In the garden of Eden, God commanded that "you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die" (Genesis 2:17). We are not prepared, then, when God looks for Adam after his sin, calling out "Where are you?" God seeks Adam, not to put him to death, but to reestablish a relationship with him. God, the Lover, will not allow sin to stand between him and his creature. God personally bridges the gap through his son, Jesus Christ. The Old Testament charge was to "love your neighbor as yourself" (Leviticus 19:18). But Jesus gave his disciples a new command with a radically different motive: "Love each other as I have loved you" (John 15:12). Paul affirms that "the entire law is summed up in a single command: Love your neighbor as yourself'" (Galatians 5:14). Once we have received God's love as God�??s children, God expects us to extend that love to others. In fact, "Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love" (1 John 4:8). Love is the motivation for evangelism. Christ's love compels us to become ambassadors for Christ, with a ministry of reconciliation. As ambassadors for Christ, we can build bridges to span the deep chasms of hate in the world. Hate is a strong thing; however, I believe it can be overcome with love. I agree with John Lennon and Paul McCartney in their song, Let It Be, And when the broken-hearted people living in the world agree There will be an answer, let it be For though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see There will be an answer, let it be Peace and Blessings, Pastor Dennis ************* Dear St. Peters Choir, Thank you so much for ministering to us with music.
