“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge and condemn the world [that is, to initiate the final judgment of the world], but that the world might be saved through Him. Whoever believes and has decided to trust in Him [as personal Savior and Lord] is not judged [for this one, there is no judgment, no rejection, no condemnation]; but the one who does not believe [and has decided to reject Him as personal Savior and Lord] is judged already [that one has been convicted and sentenced], because he has not believed and trusted in the name of the [One and] only begotten Son of God [the One who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, the One who alone can save him].
(John 3:16-18 AMP).
“This is My commandment, that you love and unselfishly seek the best for one another, just as I have loved you. No one has greater love [nor stronger commitment] than to lay down his own life for his friends. You are my friends if you keep on doing what I command you”.(John 15:12-14 AMP).
“Little children (believers, dear ones), let us not love [merely in theory] with word or with tongue [giving lip service to compassion], but in action and in truth [in practice and in sincerity, because practical acts of love are more than words]”.(1 John 3:18 AMP).
What is True Love?
And this is life eternal, that they might know you the ONLY TRUE GOD, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
1 John 4:8
…for God is Love.
•True Love is God Himself and who He is because God is Love.
•True Love is to know the one and only True God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent.
•When we received Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we also received the
True Love of God.
•When someone says I’ve met my true love.
#1 they know God through Christ.
#2 they have met their future spouse who loves them with the True Love of God.
A new commandment I give unto you, That all of you love one another; as I have loved you…
•When we love one another with the love of God we are exercising True Love.
John 15:9 Jesus said,
All of you continue in my love.
•The Love of Jesus is True Love. Let’s continue in His Love.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
