To Love God Is To Hate False Ways

I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep your word.
How sweet are your words to my taste!  Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore, I hate every false way.”
Psalm 119:101, 103–104

Everyone who truly loves the truth and hates false ways does what David did and “refrains their feet” from joining others in “false ways”.   The love of God leads no one into a false way, for “loving God” is another way of saying, “hating every false way”.  God’s call for us to come out of all Christian sects is just a plea for us to love Him.  And if we truly love Him, that love creates in us such a hatred of false ways that we cannot bear to be a part of those ways.  We will not join them, and if we have joined them, we will come out of them.
What a day it will be when God’s children finally fall in love with Him and His Son Jesus!  How they will flock to Him and leave the divisive sects of men behind!  That is the day our heavenly Father is longing to see.
