Deuteronomy 11:18-21 (NKJV)
“Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, like the days of the heavens above the earth.
Love and obedience to God's Word has great reward. Your days and that of your children will be multiplied in the land the Lord gives you. We must hear and obey His Word. We must teach it to our children. The family is very important to God.#LoveRewarded #ObdienceRewarded
This is My commandment: that you love one another just as I have loved you. John 15:12
It doesn't matter who they are, where they came from, what color their skin is, what religion they are or are not, nor what they have done; We are to love them just as He loved us when we were them. Selah! SIMPLY GRATEFUL!
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 1 Corinthians 13:1
When we speak to others without the Love of Christ, we do come across like clanging cymbals... But when we speak with the Love of Christ, their hearts will be open to receive because they know that you are not condemning them but bringing correction or hope or healing and that you really do care. SIMPLY GRATEFUL!
If I [can] speak in the tongues of men and [even] of angels, but have not LOVE (that reasoning, intentional, spiritual devotion such as is inspired by God’s love for and in us), I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
And if I have prophetic powers the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose), and understand all the secret truths and mysteries and possess all knowledge, and if I have [sufficient] faith so that I can remove mountains, but have not LOVE (God’s love in me) I am nothing (a useless nobody).
Even if I dole out all that I have [to the poor in providing] food, and if I surrender my body to be burned or in order that I may glory, but have not LOVE (God’s love in me), I gain nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
LOVE COVERS ALL! SIMPLY GRATEFUL!
And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints. 1 Thessalonians 2:16
Are we loving one another no matter what? We are not to hate but to LOVE no matter their ethnic, their color, their background! LOVE COVERS ALL!
I give you a new commandment: that you LOVE one another; as I have LOVED you, that you also LOVE one another. By this all men shall know that you are my disciples, if you have LOVE for one another. John 13:34-35
We should all take a regular and honest inventory of our love walk. Do you study love? Do you purposely walk in love? Do you really know what love is? It is certainly more than theory or speech. The Bible says love is seen in your behavior toward one another. It is by our love that the world will know we are Jesus' disciples.
The Lord’s Eternal Love
A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed and pours out his complaint before the Lord.
1Hear my prayer, O Lord,
And let my cry come to You.
2 Do not hide Your face from me in the day of my trouble;
Incline Your ear to me;
In the day that I call, answer me speedily.
3 For my days are consumed like smoke,
And my bones are burned like a hearth.
4 My heart is stricken and withered like grass,
So that I forget to eat my bread.
12 But You, O Lord, shall endure forever,
And the remembrance of Your name to all generations.
13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion;
For the time to favor her,
Yes, the set time, has come.
14 For Your servants take pleasure in her stones,
And show favor to her dust.
15 So the nations shall fear the name of the Lord,
And all the kings of the earth Your glory.
Whether you cry out to God for 5 minutes or 5 hours He hears your cry. Are you in need of the Masters touch today? Cry out to Him! #NeedtheLord
Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, 45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.
46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.
Happy and kind people are contageous! Do you fellowship with others to accomplish God's purpose in your life, in the lives of others, and in the world? We can share of love of Christ everywhere we go! Try true love today! #ValentinesDay
15 Drink water from your own cistern,
And running water from your own well.
16 Should your fountains be dispersed abroad,
Streams of water in the streets?
17 Let them be only your own,
And not for strangers with you.
18 Let your fountain be blessed,
And rejoice with the wife of your youth.
19 As a loving deer and a graceful doe,
Let her breasts satisfy you at all times;
And always be enraptured with her love.
20 For why should you, my son, be enraptured by an immoral woman,
And be embraced in the arms of a seductress?
God is not against sex, God created men and women as sexual beings. God's specific plan for sexual activity is within a marriage relationship. Here God encourages a positive sexual relationship with wife of his youth.He is told to rejoice and be satisfied with her. Maximum love can only be fulfilled in a faithful marriage. Be committed and content with your marriage. #FaithfulMarriage
8 And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
9 Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”
10 So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”
Is the Lord calling you? Are you listening? Or are you hiding? God knows where you are and what you are trying to hide from Him, but He still loves you. Run to Him! Listen to Him! Obey His call! He loves you and offers forgiveness!
