The Bretheren

We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. . . . . — 1 JOHN 3:14,15

A minister’s wife came to me greatly disturbed. “Brother Hagin,” she said, “I can’t go to Heaven. I hate my mother-in-law!”

After letting her stew a little, I was able to help her. I asked her to look me straight in the eye and say, “I hate my mother-in-law.” And I asked her to check on the inside of her — in her spirit — as she was saying that.

She said, “I hate my mother-in-law.” Then she exclaimed, “Why, something seems to be ‘scratching’ me on the inside!”

“Yes,” I said, “that’s the love of God in your born-again human spirit that loves everyone. The real you doesn’t hate your mother-in-law. But you’re letting the outward man dominate the situation.”

“You’re right,” she said, “I don’t really hate my mother-in-law.” And she made the spiritual adjustment of allowing the man on the inside, where love lives, to dominate the outward man.

Confession: I know that I have passed from death unto life because I love the brethren. And I allow that love to dominate my being. I walk in love toward everyone!
