Love One Another


1 John 4:7-21
7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God;
and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us,
because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, 
hat we might live through him.
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us,
and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12 No man hath seen God at any time.
If we love one another,
God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us.
God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment:
because as he is, so are we in this world.
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment.
He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
19 We love him, because he first loved us.
20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar:
for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen,
how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who liveth God love his brother also.

Thank God for making it so simple! He's easy to love. In our humanity, we stumble when we consider any alternative to loving others. Thank God for His tremendous grace and love to lift us back up again, in the same manner we can help restore one another in a spirit of meekness.

Proverbs 3:27-28 KJV
27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due,
when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
28 Say not unto thy neighbor  Go, and come again,
and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.

Try the Proverbs Ch.3 lifestyle and see if God will not open up the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it! I know Malachi v.3:10 refers to the tithe, but it applies to loving others as well.

Romans 13:8 KJV
Owe no man any thing, but to love one another:
for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

God has already showered us with sufficiency of grace and a new way to love others!
Enjoy basking in the Father's love as it illuminates the darkness, enlightens our understanding, and resonates to the utter most parts of the world!

Romans 5:5 KJV
And hope maketh not ashamed
because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts
by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

1 John 3:16-17 KJV
16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us:
and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
17 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need,
and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?

My Thoughts & Prayer for You Today
Ephesians 3:14-19 KJV
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory,
to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints
what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
And that brings Rest to my Soul!
