THE CORE OF LIFE Pt 6

“Reproduction of love”

 

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 The one who does not love does not knowGod, for God is love.

 

ANY AREA OF FEAR IN OUR LIFE IS CAUSED BY A LACK OF REVELATION OF GOD’S LOVE TOWARDS US

 

John 13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

35 By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

 

THIS IS THE DISTINGUSING MARK OF A TRUE CHRISTIAN

2 Cor 1 Paul talks about going through some tough times. God ministered to him through a Christian brother.

 

GOD HAS ORDAINED THAT A LOT OF WHAT YOU RECEIVE COMES FROM OTHER BODY PARTS.

 

JESUS DID NOT JUST PAY THE PRICE TO REDEEM US.  HE ALSO INTENDED TO REPRODUCE HIMSELF IN US.

 

John 12:24 Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.

 

YOU AND I ARE TO BE CHRIST, REPRODUCED AND MANIFEST IN THE EARTH.

 

1 Cor 13:1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

 

2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.       DID HE SAY, “I’M NOT MUCH”? :0)

 

3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.

 

4 Love is patient, love is kind

 

PATIENCE MEANS; YOU PUT UP WITH, A LONG TIME.

 

WALKING IN LOVE IS WALKING BY FAITH.  BY THE SPIRIT.

 

A SPIRITUAL PERSON IS IN CONTROL OF THEIR EMOTIONS. WORDS, ACTIONS…

 

LOVE IS KIND…

 

YOU ARE WHAT YOU HAVE BECOME, NOT WHAT YOU HAVE TO BE.
