Learning to Love, Learning to Hate - Love Worth Finding - Sept. 8, 2012

Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: He preserveth the souls of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked (Ps. 97:10). Just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean you’re supposed to love everything.

Learning to Love, Learning to Hate

September 8

“Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: He preserveth the souls of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.” Psalm 97:10

This may come as a surprise to you, but just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean you’re supposed to love everything.

Now, we hear that Christians are to be a people of love, and that is true. But did you know that if you’re a Christian, not only must you learn to love, but you also must learn to hate?

If you love God, then you are to hate what God hates. It is true in every realm. If you love flowers, you hate weeds. If you love health, you hate germs. If you love God, you hate evil. It is just that plain.

Romans 12:9b tells us in even stronger terms to “abhor that which is evil.” A hypocrite, something none of us want to be, is someone who says he loves God, but then he doesn’t hate sin.

Don’t tell others you love God if you don’t hate that which nailed His Son to the cross.
