Love is always Holy, Righteous and True.
1 John 4:20
If a man says, I LOVE God, and that man HATES his brother, he is a LIAR: for he that LOVES NOT his brother whom he has seen, how can he LOVE God whom he has NOT seen?
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you”. (John 15:9-14 NKJV).
-Why MUST we LOVE one another? Because God COMMANDED us to do so.
A NEW COMMANDMENT I give unto you, that you love one another; as I have loved you…
-Loving one another is not an option. It’s a COMMANDMENT of God!
-No one has to pre-qualify in order to get the Love of God from us. As Children of God Love is who we are and Love is what we do.
-In the ACT of LOVE God reveals Himself to the giver and to the recipient.
-When God reveals Himself in the ACT of LOVE, things will always change for the better because God is Love and Love never fails.
Love and Correction
Open rebuke is better than secret love.
…rebuke a wise man, and he will love you.
Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser…
My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: For whom the LORD loves he corrects…
If all of you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons…
But if all of you be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are all of you bastards, and not sons.
-Continue to be wise, disciplined and mature when receiving the corrections, rebukes and chastening of the Lord. Its for our betterment and, His loves towards us.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to Jesus be all the glory. Amen
This is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ.
Gracious and Almighty God, teach me your ways and give me your heart as I strive to not only love you, but to know your will and have insight into your ways. Help me to know the best things to do today and use my time in the best way possible to live out your will in my work, with my family, among my friends, and especially before those who do not know Christ as their Savior. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Savior and Lord I pray.
