It's Valentine Day. Let's talk about love. "For God so loved the world he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all your heart and with all thy soul and with all thy might." Deut. 6:5 & Matt.22:37-39
"God has wonderful things in store for them that love him." 1 Cor.2:9
"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God and we shall be like him." 1 John:1-2.
"Let love be without dissimulation" (faking your true feelings) "be kindly affectioned to one another with brotherly love." Rom.12:9-10
"Love workth no ill to his neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law." Rom.13:10
"Husbands, love your wives." Eph.6:25
"Young women love your husbands, love your children." Titus 2:4
"Let all things be done with love." 1 Cor.16:14
"Walk in love." Eph. 5:2
"God is love." 1 John 4:8
"God loved us so much that while we yet sinners, Christ died for us." Rom. 5:8 & 1 Cor.15:3-4
Jesus said, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13
So after all this love God shows to us, how can we give it back to him?
Read 1 Cor.13, the great love chapter.
Godly love (charity) works wonders.
