“But Michael the archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about the body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him an abusive judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you!””

Jude 9

If an angel of God didn’t even hate Satan, what possible justification can there be for a Christian to hate another person?

Beloved, let’s love one another; for love is from God, and everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, because God is love. By this the love of God was revealed in us, that God has sent His only Son into the world so that we may live through Him.

1 John 4:7-9

If God is love, and he sent Jesus to us so that we may live through Him, we must transform our lives to demonstrate God’s love to all people, especially one another.

This is not easy, but it is simple; love means ending hate.
