Love Shared

 


Who are we to love?

First and above all, we are to love our Lord God with all our heart.

Second, we are to love everybody else, including ourselves.

 

Love the LORD

Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God.  Joshua 23:11

We are to love the LORD our God with:

  • All our heart
  • All our soul
  • All our might
  • All our mind
  • All our strength

And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.  Deuteronomy 6:5

Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, always.  Deuteronomy 11:1

Because we love our Lord God, we will:

  • Keep his charge
  • Keep his statutes
  • Keep his judgments
  • Keep his commandments

        ALWAYS.

Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, always.  Deuteronomy 11:1

Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  John 14:23 

 

The word of God tells us if we love God, that we will keep His word.

I think sometimes we forget what a privilege and a great honor it is to be called the children of God.  How wonderful and patient is our Lord God Almighty!  He who is the Most High above all things, and who waits on us every day to find time to speak with Him and be with Him.

As the children of God, we diligently seek to know God better, and to love Him better every day.  It is a privilege and an honor to keep His word.   How thankful I am to serve the Most High One True God!  Praise the Father God Almighty and the Lord Jesus Christ forever!  Halleluiah!!

 

Love and Serve the Lord

Because we love the Lord, the children of God serve Him with:

  • All our heart and
  • All our soul.

And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,  Deuteronomy 11:13

For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;  Deuteronomy 11:22

In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.  Deuteronomy 30:16

Because we love the Lord God, the children of God obey Him always.

Because we love God, we will keep ourselves in His love.

But if any man love God, the same is known of him.  1 Corinthians 8:3

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?  1 John 4:20

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.  1 John 5:2

And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.  1 John 4:21

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.  John 14:21

Love Him

Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations;  Deuteronomy 7:9

And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,  Deuteronomy 10:12

Too many people believe that they can love God without them obeying God, but this is not what God says.  God says, if a man loves me, he will keep my words.  Obedience to God is the result of true salvation, true love of God.  Obedience to God is loving God.

 

Love Everybody

Because we love the Lord our God, we can love one another.

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.  1 John 4:7

Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.  1 Peter 2:17

He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.  1 John 2:10

He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even unto now.  1 John 2:9

Loving one another is not an option with God.  God says one proof of our salvation is that we love one another.  Only with God can we love like God loves, which is unconditionally.  Only through the love of God can we love our enemies.  With God, through Christ Jesus we can do what may seem impossible to nonbelievers, we can love one another, no matter what.

 

Because we love God, we can love everybody

And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.  1 John 4:21

 

Love your neighbor as yourself

For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  Romans 13:9

We are not only to love our enemies, but we are also to bless them, do good to them and pray for them.  True love is not with just words, but through our actions we demonstrate the love of God through us to other people, even those who are our enemies, who curse us and hate us, who despitefully use us and persecute us.

But I say unto you which hear, love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,  Luke 6:27

How can we love everybody?

You may say, that it is impossible to love everyone

You may say, that there are some people you just cannot love.  

You may say, there is no one who can love everybody.

But God says you can.  God says you are to love everybody.

God says you can love everybody. 

Yes, even your enemies and even those who have hurt you terribly.

For with God nothing shall be impossible.  Luke 1:37

How can we love everyone?  The only way we can love everybody is through God, through Christ.

By being saved we become children of God, and therefore we are able to love everybody through the grace of Jesus Christ.

 

Love everyone through Christ

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.  Ephesians 3:17-19

We don't have to understand how we can love everyone, we just need to love everyone, as God commands.

As believers, we have the love of Christ in us, which passes all knowledge, and we are filled with all the fulness of God.

God is love, we are filled with all the fulness of God, we are filled with love.

With God we can do anything, and yes, we can love everybody.

Yes, I love God and I love everybody!!

 


How long are we to love?

We are to continue in love.  We are to love always.

Never stop loving.

As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.  John 15:9

Jesus says, "Continue ye in My love".

 

 


Love: Love it - Learn it - Live it

Oh how I love GOD's Word !!    Love it, learn it, live it.   These are key Scriptures on God's love.

Love it

Learn it

Live it

1 John 4:19 - We love him, because he first loved us.

1 John 4:16 -  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.

1 John 4:8 - He that loveth not knoweth not God; for GOD IS LOVE.

1 John 4:10 - Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

1 John 4:7 - Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

1 John 3:14 - We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  

 

We are to love God's words; we are to learn God's words; and, we are to live God's words.

When in doubt do without.  If you cannot find a fact in scripture then do not state it as fact.  There is no scripture in God's Word that ever places anything equal to God, but God, including love.  Love is not God.  

Do not follow the doctrine of man, follow God, follow God's Word, follow God's truth and you will follow God's will.
