1 John 4:9-12       This is how the love of God is revealed to us: God has sent his only Son into the world so that we can live through him. 10 This is love: it is not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son as the sacrifice that deals with our sins. 11 Dear friends, if God loved us this way, we also ought to love each other. 12 No one has ever seen God. If we love each other, God remains in us and his love is made perfect in us. (CEB)

Divine love insists this way: Yeshua lived and taught a Way in order that we might live as citizens of the Commonwealth of Peace and Justice. The love we experience in the name of God (perhaps) was made manifest in Yeshua’s giving of himself on behalf of those who were deemed to be unworthy. Worthy or not, you and I have been recipients of that love; in turn we ought to give of ourselves for others. Since we have insistence in the name of God (perhaps) instead of God as an existent being, it is our responsibility to live in such a manner that God becomes real in and through us. You were formed in love and you are energized by love in the name of God. Perhaps. Therefore you are tailor-made to radiate that love to others, especially those who may seem unloveable.
