The Life of Love is more and more possible; the more we know GOD; for you can only genuinely love what you know well!
1. We must love God, with all our “Heads”; “Hearts” and “Hands”!
[“Heads” represents “Accurate Knowledge”;
“Hearts”: represents Faith & Sincerity! (Remember Romans 10:17, how Knowing births Faith!)
While “Hands”: represents Working and Acting on what we know of Him; as James 2:26 declares, “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also!”]. The Proof of Faith, and of Love, is in the “Verb”, the “Do-ing” part!
2. This is how the Son of GOD, our High Priest and pattern Firstborn amongst many brethren lived His Life. Read John 15:10, “If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in His love”
3. 1 Corinthians 16:14 counsels us, “Let all your things be done with love!”
As it is written in 1 John 4:20, “If a man say, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar: for he that loves not his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
4. Finally be expectant of the awesome Reward of Loving God and Loving others; (even your enemies). Read 1 Corinthians 2:9,
“But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love HIM!”
Amen & Amen!
Indeed, the Greatest is Love!
