Love is the signature of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, in the lives of those whom He has redeemed. The breadth of God’s love for mankind is repeatedly on display within the pages of the Bible. His love is alive and well within His children; we are marked by the love we have for all. That love has no boundaries and knows no restrictions.
44“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust. 46For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even tax collectors do the same? 47

Brotherly love, as it is portrayed in the Bible, is much different from the “cheap love” that we see and hear so much today. This post is a wonderful exploration of the true meaning of “brotherly love.”
“God’s Word tells us that He is love and His love prompted Him to send His Son Jesus Christ to be the propitiation for our sins and this is the same love we should have for other believers. God’s life in us drives us to love one another, and have compassion on all. If we share His love without wisdom though, we could join in the deception of false brethren and so confirm them to the judgment of God and shield them from the need to repent of their sins and place their belief in Jesus Christ. “
Brotherly love compels those in Christ to speak frankly to their brothers and sisters (in love) to prevent them from walking the wrong path. This is much different from the noncommittal “Love ya!” that’s used by the world.
