Love ~ Key verses — GLORIFYTHELORD

Love ~ Key verses — GLORIFYTHELORD

“We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us.  So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.”  1 John 3:16 NLT

Love as demonstrated in the Gospel is a “giving-of-ourselves-impulse.”

Jesus did gave Himself for us and in doing so he created a new family.

Now in Jesus’ new family the church we have been made to be brothers and sisters with people outside the lines of our own blood and the law.

How shall we treat them?  How shall we move toward them?

With love.  With the “giving of ourselves impulse.”

I’m excited!  Where will love strike next?

“We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us.  So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.”  1 John 3:16

(Key verses are great for memorizing.  So make a card, and review, review, review.)
