When you are a part of God’s people, you are his treasured possession. You are his family because our Lord loves you and says “whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.” But God doesn’t love those who hate him and he has very strong words for those people.
We must learn to love the Lord. This is the greatest commandment. Our Lord Jesus said, “anyone who loves me will obey my teaching.” How much do you keep His commandments, that’s the measure of how much you love God.
