GODS KIND OF LOVE  

“Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us. IF SOMEONE SAYS, “I LOVE GOD,” AND HATES HIS BROTHER, HE IS A LIAR; FOR HE WHO DOES NOT LOVE HIS BROTHER WHOM HE HAS SEEN, HOW CAN HE LOVE GOD WHOM HE HAS NOT SEEN? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also”. ( 1 John 4:17‭-‬21 NKJV).

“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love”. (1 Corinthians 13:1‭-‬13 NKJV).

Practical LOVE
1John 3:17
But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother have need, and shuts up his heart of compassion from him, how dwells the love of God in him?
+The evidence of love is demonstrated in Giving, Caring, Sharing and Compassion.
+Love gives to others at the expense and sacrifice of self.
+Lust and hate always seek to get and take from others to satisfy themselves at the expense of others.
+People are to be Loved and not to be Used. Things are to be Used and not to be Loved.
+Beware of those who love things and use people, and use people to get the things they love.
+Love is always more about others than it is about self.
Be NOT Deceived Love Must be PROVEN.
+God does not want us to be ignorant in anything that pertains to Life and Godliness.
+Love pertains to life and godliness.
1 Thessalonians 5:21
Prove (test) all things; hold fast (keep) that which is good.
+Love is proven when it is demonstrated.
+Undemonstrated Love is in the same category as a person who has no love.
+As loving Children of God there isn’t a moment when we are not supposed to show Love.
+Let Love be heard in every word we speak.
+Let Love be seen in all that we do.
+Let Love be felt in the touch of our deeds.
+Loving God and loving each other is another way of showing God’s Glory and Glorifying God.
+Love never fails. So let us not fail to Love.

What is LIFE without the LOVE of God? Part 3
Romans 13:8
Owe no man any thing, but to LOVE one another…
+We always OWE LOVE to others even to our enemies. Jesus said is Matt 5:44 “Love your enemies”
+Who is it that we are not showing the love of God to? Reach out and show love to them for Christ sakes.
+We shouldn’t love others because they are lovable or because they love us. We love others because we love and obey our Lord, John 13:34; 15:10.
+As Believers not loving other gives the devil the largest entrance to our lives.
John 10:10
The thief (Satan the devil) comes to STEAL, and to KILL, and to DESTROY: I (Christ Jesus your Lord) am come that you might have LIFE, and that you might have it more abundantly.
+When we walk in love it keeps the door closed to the devil and wide open to Christ Jesus our Lord.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

GOD’S EVERLASTING LOVE

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
{ John 3:16-19}

For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to  be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can  be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It  is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It  is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
[ Romans 8:29-39 ]

LOVE OR INFATUATION

Is this Love, is this love, love that I am feeling, Bob Marley asked in one of his songs; Maybe it’s lust or infatuation? Who knows these days. When I was growing up, we use to imagine what a person looks like under all those clothes, and guess the color underwear they have on, now it’s a style, fashion or the in-thing. Nothing left for the imagination; No wonder no one can differentiate between Love that’s genuine or infatuation; Is it a fling, a sex thing or love. I sure wish a lot of people would find that out, before they dive into a relationship, or marriage. Do you love the person or are you infatuated with them, is it for sex, money, security, or love.

When I look at the story of Adam and Eve, I realized, they had no choice in who their mate, wife, husband or partner was, they had to depend on God, well Adam had to. He did not have choices, fat, skinny, black, white, indian, or chinese, tall, short, long hair, short hair, rich, poor, none of those things was attached to love; all Adam needed was a help mate a companion, some one to relate to instead of himself, and the animals. So why did the purpose of love, marriage, friendship, companionship, change so drastically.

Allow me to tell you, we have taken God out of the equation, and replaced Him with our own personal agendas, greed, lust, and pride. It’s no longer we or us, it’s me and mine. That’s the reason we have so many divorces, people have allowed greed, and selfishness to run, and ruin their lives. We have allowed the devil to let sin control us, we have allowed sin to divide us, separate us, from each other, and God.

Lets not forget that God sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ to bridge the gap between man and God, and each other, how do I know that? I’m glad you asked. God sent His son into the world not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved, check it out for yourself  (John 3:16-17, Romans 5:21, John 6:40,Romans 6:23), and many more scriptures to verify this. Friends for us to be on the right path to anything, we must be right with God, our Heavenly Father. Nothing will ever be right in our lives, until we make things right with God, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6, Isaiah 5:13) God does not wish for anyone to perish but that all should come to repentance( 2 Peter 3:9, 1 John 5:9-15). Jesus is the only way, truth, and the life, no one gets to God without going through Him (John 14:6,John 8:32,Romans 10:9). Listen if you don’t know Jesus, and the God who sent Him to save your life, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make in your entire life. Now if you know God and want to clean your life up and start fresh, you must also repent, which is confessing read Romans 10:9-13, then read Romans 12, and do as it says.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to delivery His message about His son Jesus Christ, and His will for us, I sincerely hope it blessed you as it did me,and it will move you to be obedient to Him, may He bless and keep you like only He alone can in Jesus name, amen.
