Spread The Love

We live in a world filled with problems, but we can make a difference. We need to continue to spread God’s love.

Love your neighbor                   Mark 12:3

Love your enemies                     Matt 5:44

Love the world (people)           Matt 22:37

Love your friends                       John 11:3

Love the brotherhood                Rom 12:10

Love God’s way                            1 Cor 13:4-8

Love in your service                   Gal 5:13

Love your spouse                        Eph 5:28

Love when you preach               Phil 1:15-16

Love the brethren sincerely      1 Pet 1:22

 

God is relying on His children to teach love and practice love so the world will believe His word and escape the snare of the devil (2 Tim 2:26).
Spread the love.

We Love

“We love, because He first loved us” (John 4:19).  This verse is primarily aimed at our brothers and sisters in Christ as seen in the next two verses.

The earliest manuscripts omit “Him” as in “We love Him” – God, but the exclusion does no violence to the New Testament message.

We love our brother because we received love from God first.  God is love (1 John 4:7-8).  We also love our neighbor and sinners who need Christ’s redeeming blood.  Those outside the church must experience the love of God through us.

We love, because He first loved us.  This verse is not an exhortation such as “Let us love.”  It is a statement of fact; “We love.”  It is assumed that we love because of whom we are, God’s children.
