God Is Love
1 John 4:7-21
7-10 My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know him if you don’t love...
All throughout the word of God, a command rings loud and true.
Love the Lord your God…Luke 10:27
Love your neighbor…James 2:8
Love covers a multitude of sin...1 Peter 4:8
Faith, Hope, and Love but the greatest of these is love…1 Corinthians 13:13
They will know you are my disciples by the way you love…John 13:35
One thing is certain, we should never underestimate or undervalue the power of Love. Catching just a glimpse of the Father’s love forever changes lives.
I was in a meeting one day and I asked a simple question… “Why is it that you don’t believe?” He very quickly replied, “too many “Christians” are anything but Christ-like.” At that moment my eyes were opened as I discerned this person was another statistic of someone hurt by another claiming to be Christian. I then replied “You’re right and I apologize for that.” As I spoke of the Love of Christ, Testimonies of His Goodness, and the amazing calling God has placed over his life, his demeanor changed & his countenance was lifted up, as he took ownership as a loved son of the King.
The greatest way to further the Kingdom is to be so full of the Love of our Heavenly Father, that we can’t help but to lavish it on everyone we meet.
You may reply “But you have no idea what this person did, or what that person said.” Child of God, you have no idea what Jesus went through for you, as He saw your face, and called your name. Saying my LOVE your worth it all. Cornerstone Lets Love Out Loud.
And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment. Philippians 1:9
