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 know God, for God is love.
OUR WHOLE LIFE IS TO BE MANIFESTING THE LOVE OF GOD
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.”
THE MARK OF A GENUINE CHRISTIAN IS LOVE TOWARDS OTHERS.
LOVE IS A KEY TO REAPING OUR HARVESTS
OUR FAITH IS ONLY ABLE TO OPERATE ACCORDING TO OUR LOVE. (Gal 5:6)
MAKE SURE THAT LOVE IS THE CORE OF OUR LIFE!
A BIG INDICATOR THAT WE ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK IS JOY!
John 15:9 Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. 10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
OUR LOVE FOR GOD IS REVEALED IN OUR DIRECT OBEDIENCE TO HIS WORD AND WHAT HE TELLS US BY HIS SPIRIT
John 14:21 He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.
HIS LOVE IS WHAT PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR.
THE REWARD FOR LOVING HIM AND OBEYING HIM IS HE WILL MANIFEST HIMSELF TO US.
15:11 These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.
WHEN YOU HAVE HAD THE PRIVELEDGE OF BEING AN INSTRUMENT OF THE LORD IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS IT IS THE GREATEST JOY.
John 15:12 This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do what I command you.
