And this I pray, that your LOVE may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ.
Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto The glory and praise of God.
What is Love? 🤔
God’s Love and ours…
Dear friends, let us love one another, for Love comes from God. Everyone who Loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not Love does not know God, because:
***God is LOVE, Amen.***
This is how God showed His Love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. This is Love: not that we Loved God, but that He Loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
Dear friends, since God so Loved the world, we also ought to Love one another.
No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His Love is made complete in us.
This is how we know that we live in Him and He in us:
He has given us of His Spirit.
And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent His Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is The Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the Love God has for us.
*** God is Love.***
Whoever lives in Love lives in God!
And God in them! Amen.
This is how Love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment:
In this world we are like Jesus.
There is no fear in Love.
But perfect Love drives out fear, Amen.
Because fear has to do with punishment.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of Love and of a sound mind.”
2 Timothy 1:7
There is NO ‘crazy’ in Love!
“There is no fear in Love. But perfect Love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in Love.”
1 John 4:18
Throw ALL fear at The feet of Jesus.
“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:7
“Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.”
The one who fears is not made perfect in Love. But in Love there is no fear!
We Love because He first Loved
Once again I ask: What is Love?
💒 A building?
🌈 A rainbow? Beauty?
🥇 Being the ‘head’/star?
We shall be the head and not the tail.
“The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. IF you pay attention to the commands of The LORD your God as you carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom, Amen.”
Mind you! As believers; God’s Word that made The Universe states that “you shall be the head and not the tail.”
Whoever claims to Love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot Love God, whom they have not seen.
And He has given us this command: Anyone who Loves God must also love their brother and sister.
