Loving One Another

1 John 3 scripture

  • What are the details in the verses?
    • Think about the who/what/where/when/why/how.
      • We must love each other.
      • It’s been the message from the beginning.
    • If we hate, we’re the same as a murderer.
      • A right-minded person doesn’t want to be a murderer. Right?
    • Verse 16 says: This is how we know what real love is: Jesus gave his life for us. So we should give our lives for our brothers and sisters.
      • This is the Good News of the Gospel, pure and simple.
      • We must be willing to give our lives for our brothers and sisters.
    • Verses 18 & 19 tell us: Dear children, we must show love through actions that are sincere, not through empty words. This is how we will know that we belong to the truth and how we will be reassured in His presence.
      • I’ve learned over time that true and real love isn’t about emotions and feelings so much.
      • True and Real Love is a verb; it is an action! It’s what you do; not just saying something, but doing. Mull that over for a bit. Pray about it. Let GOD show you and guide you in true and real love.
  • What Is the strong theme?
    • True & Real LOVE.
  • What stands out?
    • Everything I said above…
  • What is God’s word saying to me in these verses?
    • Really love my brothers and sisters through action.
    • I can’t pick and choose who I want to love and how I love them.
    • It has to be GOD’s way.
  • How can I apply this scripture to my life?
    • Do everything GOD’s way; not mine.
    • Go deep into the recesses of my spirit and soul and clear out the cobwebs. Love how GOD wants me to love.
    • Love on my brothers and sisters like never before! In today’s day and age, people need it more than ever.
    • Pray for them also. Even when I don’t know their life’s situation, God knows. That’s all that matters. I do not need to know the details of their situation.
  • What do I need to change to make the application of this scripture work?
    • Stop the negative thoughts and behaviors that cause hate and unloving ways in my life that affect others. Yes, believe it or not, we all harbor some hate deep in our spirits. It needs to be blotted out and destroyed.
    • Once the above is put into place, that opens my heart, soul, and spirit to actively love others.
  • What action do I need to take?
    • Yes, you saw this coming!!! “Just Do It!”

Prayer: ABBA YAH, Father GOD, thank YOU for the gift of Salvation through Jesus. I pray that we can love, truly and really love, according to YOUR word, not what we think or feel it should be. After, Jesus’ actions of willing being crucified and resurrected are the ultimate true gift of love. We must love because He loved us first! Show us YAH! I pray the tragedy and horrific devastation is stopped according to Your will. I pray that we love people instead of fighting, hating, and murdering them. Thank You for allowing me to truly love people, as well as being loved back by them. YOU are in control, YAH. Thank YOU for that! I pray in Jesus’ name, amen.

New is Really Old!

Jesus commands us to love one another. It’s a vital component to our Christan livlihood. Why? Because, it’s how people can tell we are Christians.

We show we are servants of God by our pure lives, our understanding, patience, and kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by true love, by speaking the truth, and by God’s power. We use our right living to defend ourselves against everything. 2 Corinthians 6:6‭-‬7 as well as,

My children, we should love people not only with words and talk, but by our actions and true caring. 1 John 3:18

One thing to think about here is this:

Sometimes people say, “Here is something new!” But actually it is old; nothing is ever truly new. Ecclesiastes 1:10

New is actually old. We’ve been told this for a very long time.

Yes, there are different kinds of love. I’ve written a blog series about it before. You can find it here on the blog by searching with the word “love” and a list will pop up.

This post is talking about old versus new. God has talked about love from the very beginning of His word. In fact, one of the 10 commandments is about love.

And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength.
Deuteronomy 6:5

When we truly love God as He commands, all the rest of our Christian living will fall into place. Because, when we love God with every part of our being, we don’t have time for anything else. It puts our lives into perspective. We will pour out the love He gives to us to everyone else. Even our enemies.

Let’s begin this new year with something old! Let’s really love one another as GOD loves His dear children!

Thank You, Dear Father God, did Your love for us. Use it’s to love others as YOU do. In Jesus’ name, amen.

He Chose Each Of Us!

John 15_14-16 image

Yahweh’s system of things, nothing is exceeding His gracious plan of redemption!

He loves us with an everlasting love (Jer. 31:3 And from far away the Lord appeared to his people and said, “I love you people with a love that will last forever. That is why I have continued showing you kindness.) and He drew us to Himself with cords kindness and ropes of love (Hos. 11:4 I led them with cords of human kindness, with ropes of love. I lifted the yoke from their neck and bent down and fed them.) He chose us.

And He chose each us for a purpose. Today’s scripture image shows that He has appointed each us to produce fruit and that our fruit will last. When we are obedient and aligned with Him, He will give us what we ask for. Nothing less will do.

Let’s live in the faith that Yahweh knew what He was doing when He chose us.

What’s your experience living in the faith that Yahweh chose you? Share, let’s chat!

Happy Home-Happy Life

There’s no really deep secret to having a happy home-happy life. It’s simply letting Jesus have first place in our hearts. Each day is a growing experience as we pull in closer to Him and to none other.

As Hosea so wisely recognized:

In two days He will put new life in us; on the third day He will raise us up so that we may live in His presence and know Him. Let’s try to learn about the Lord; He will come to us as surely as the dawn comes. He will come to us like rain, like the spring rain that waters the ground.” (Hosea 6:2-3).

How do we learn to love? We begin at the center of all love: Calvary. We need to know Yahweh because Yahweh “is” love. Agape Love.

What’s your experience with Agape Love? Comment, let’s chat.

Me: My experience with Agape Love; when I was at my lowest, Yahweh carried me and brought me out of the fire. He is the Victory!
