It’s a beautiful day today and I hope your Sunday has been full of love, hope, joy and smiles. 🙂 We all face ups and downs, but through thick and thin remember that we are brothers and sisters in Christ, and our actions and words should demonstrate a sincere love for one another! We are to express our love as a reflection of God’s love for us, striving to live peaceably among all men, and seeking to be positive examples to the world at large. I love you all in Christ, and pray that you are abundantly blessed!!!
John 15:9-17 (NKJV)9 “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. 10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.11 “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. 12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. 17 These things I command you, that you love one another.
1 John 4:20 (NKJV) If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
John 13:34-35 (AMP) I give you a new commandment: that you should love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too should love one another. By this shall all [men] know that you are My disciples, if you love one another [if you keep on showing love among yourselves].
