Blog # 448 Love
I thought it would be good to refresh our memories as to some of the things the Bible says of love. Here are several of the references I think we can find useful in discovering in a deeper and more meaningful way the content and challenge of the command we have to love God above all and to love one another as Jesus loves us. We are never without God's love, but sometimes we forget or
are distracted by something else and are not aware of it. What a source of peace joy and power the love of God is! But it can also be a challenge.
Love in the Bible:
1 Jn. 4:8 God is love...God's love for us was revealed when God sent into the world His only Son.
Matthew 22: 34-40. Which is the greatest Commandment?... love the Lord your God... and the second is love your neighbor as yourself. On these two Commandments hang the whole law...
Jn. 13 34-35. This is how all will know you are my disciples, your love for one another.
Jude 3: 19 Keep yourselves in the love of God.
Jn. 14: 31 I love the Father.
Jn. 15: 9 ...abide in my love.
Jn. 15:13 ....greater love than this no one has...
Jn. 21 15 ... you know I love you...
Romans 8: 28 We know that to them that love God all thins work together for good.
Romans 8: 35 What shall separate us from the love of God?
Romans 13: 8 Owe no one anything but to love one another. One who loves one's neighbor has fulfilled the law.
1 Cor. 2: 9 Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, nor has it dawned upon us what God has prepared for those who love Him.
