We could make the mistake of isolating ourselves from our brothers in Christ and from society, thinking that a life that pleases God is only one that stays away from others, whether by fasting, praying or evangelizing. We must know that what is mentioned is completely healthy for the life of every believer, but we must also understand that a life that pleases God is one that has brotherly love, that loves his neighbor as well as himself.
Jesus spoke of this love saying: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” John also said: How can you say that you love God and not love your brother? And it is that the seal of a pleasant life before God is that we love our neighbor as ourselves and this is something that we must practice every day. Remember the primitive church, the Bible says that they were unanimous in everything they did, there fraternal love reigned and it is something that we should not leave alone in the past, we should practice it.
The apostle Paul wrote to the Thessalonians:
9 But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
10 And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more;
11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;
12 That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.
1 Thessalonians 4:9-12
It is supposed that every believer should have this love for his brothers, without need to be talking too much about the same, since if we are Christians, this is what we have learned from our brothers, that we should love God above all things and it should not be something so difficult for people born again.
Dear brothers, if we are not practicing this properly, then we must stop on the path and begin to act properly, so that we can begin to have a life that is completely pleasing to God.
