Title: To Love – Learn How To Love
Message in the featured picture:
“To Love – In this is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation (atonement) (sacrificial payment) for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:10-11 (NSB)
Scripture for the day:
1 John 4:17-21 (BBE) In this way love is made complete in us, so that we may be without fear on the day of judging, because as he is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love: true love has no room for fear, because where fear is, there is pain; and he who is not free from fear is not complete in love. 19 We have the power of loving, because he first had love for us.
20 If a man says, I have love for God, and has hate for his brother, his words are false: for how is the man who has no love for his brother whom he has seen, able to have love for God whom he has not seen? 21 And this is the word which we have from him, that he who has love for God is to have the same love for his brother.
Thought for the day:
Finally my brothers and sisters, I pray you have better knowledge of what it means to love agapaō style. Before you go:
1 John 3:17-18 Expanded Bible (EXB) “Suppose someone has enough to live [the world’s possessions/goods] and sees a brother or sister [fellow believer] in need, but does not help [closes off his heart/compassion from him]. Then God’s love is not living in that person [How does God’s love abide/remain in him?].
18 My children [2:1], we should love people not only with words and talk [in word and tongue], but by our actions and true caring [or by showing true love through our actions; in deed and truth].”
1 John 3:23 (RKJNT) “And this is his commandment, That we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he commanded us.” Learn to love others and the Lord with agapaō love, be blessed my friends. — Tim.
