Subject: May 12th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is begotten of God, and knoweth God. 1 John 4.7.

Once a son was born to a brother in Christ. He was asked, "Now that you have become a father, do you love your son?" His answer was: "A week before I was to be a father, I kept thinking how I should love my son. But as soon as my son was born—the moment I saw him—my heart quite naturally went out to him and I simply loved him." We see here how human love springs from a consciousness inside, it is not taught from outside. Likewise, all the children of God who are bought with the blood of the Lamb and receive God's life and are baptized into the body of Christ cannot help but be moved from within to love one another as members of the same body.
