Weekend Inspiration

Love.is so special and should not be complicated, because Our Lord and Our Friend Love.

Love, we first covered in the Gospel of John. Love is a fruit of the Spirit

Again from John’s Gospel 13 verses 34 and 35: {Amplified Bible];

V34 “I give you a new commandment that you should love one another just as I have loved you, so you to should love one another.

V35 ” By this all {people} know that you are my disciples, if you love one another, if you keep showing love among yourselves.”

This is not a wishy washy kind of love, first of all it is a command, secondly it should be our response to that command, not because He commanded, but because His Love should permeate us, if He is truly Lord of our life.

We are in Him, to be sort of marinated by Him. Our old self is dead, our new self, which He purchased for us on the cross is alive in Him.

Marinated in The Fruit of Love.

1 Corinthians 13 verse 4 to 8 : Love is patient, Love is kind, It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices in truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. LOVE NEVER FAILS.

Paul wrote that the requirement of the Old Testament are completely fulfilled by those who act in love. On a second occasion he links Love, with Hope and Faith. Love being the greatest of the three. Paul also describes love as a ‘Fruit of The Spirit’, a natural product in all who have new life in Christ Jesus. {Our Lord and Our Friend}.

Do you, like us all, need a little more marination of Love, well ask Our Lord and Our Friend?

Galatians 5 verse 14; {Amplified Bible} “For the whole law {concerning human relationships is complied with the one precept. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.}

The Bible invites us to discover what Love really is. The love that the world promotes tends to be a distortion. People use it to make money, to hurt others or oppress them and to gratify themselves.

But the Love of Christ Jesus Our Lord and Our Friend, opens up a whole new world of Love, as we receive His Love for us.

Lets us all learn to love your neighbors more, as we all spend more time marinating in the wonderful Love, we have in Our Lord and Our Friend.

God does love everybody, but it is not until we accept Him, we can receive and understand, all the love that he has for each one of us.

God Bless.
