In the church of God, where a soul is on fire, kindled with the love of God, there is a deeper love between me and that brother then there is between me and my earthly brother. Oh, this love that I am speaking about is divine love; it is not human love. It is higher than human love; it is more devoted to God. It will not betray. It is true in everything. You can depend on it. It won’t change its character. In divine love, you will act exactly as Jesus would act, for you will act with the same spirit. “As He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).
You cannot bear with others until you know God has borne with you.
