1 John 4:21 We have this commandment from Him: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.
Who is my brother? Jesus identifies our brothers this way in Matthew 12:50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
The two go hand in hand; Love for God and love for thy fellowman.
According to the Word of God, “LOVE” for one another is not an option but a command, especially where the people of God is concerned. Jesus Himself says that by our love for one another men would know that we are His disciples.
1 Corinthians 13:1-2 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love [for others growing out of God’s love for me], then I have become only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal [just an annoying distraction]. 2 And if I have the gift of prophecy [and speak a new message from God to the people], and understand all mysteries, and [possess] all knowledge; and if I have all [sufficient] faith so that I can remove mountains, but do not have love [reaching out to others], I am nothing.
1 John 4:20 If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot[a] love God whom he has not seen.
