We must have 100% love of God in us so we can have love for our fellowman. Our actions show if we have the love of God. I John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. James 2:17 Even so faith, if it […]
“My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.” I John 3:18
Whatever you do in word (what we say) or deed (our actions), do all in the name of Jesus. That means our words and actions need to be in harmony with his will and under his authority. If Jesus can’t approve of it, then it isn’t in his name. Colossians 3:17 And whatsoever ye do […]
Charity is the bond that binds us together. It’s our choice that we make to put on charity by acting in love. Colossians 3:12-14 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have […]
“But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.” Luke 6:35
Song of Solomon is about the close love between the bridegroom and the bride. It is a parallel to the love of Jesus for his bride (the church). We must forsake all to have the closeness to Jesus that is described here. Song of Solomon 2:15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil […]
There are some things that the love of God is not. The love of God does not rejoice in iniquity. I Corinthians 13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; If someone is happy in their sin, they do not have the love of God because the love of God does not rejoice […]
The love of God is not an emotional love, but it is love through the Holy Ghost. Just because the love of God is in us doesn’t mean we’re going to act out that love. We have to learn some of the attributes of love so we can put them in action. We don’t have […]
The love of God in this verse is “agape” love. It is a love that desires to do what God wants no matter what it is. I John 5:1-3 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of […]
Physical Touch is one of the biblical love languages that is very powerful.
“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.” Matt 9:20-21
“For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.” Mark 3:10
Jesus healed many by touching them. If you were sick and you got close enough to touch Jesus, many times it was enough to be healed. The woman was diseased and wanted to touch even just the hem of his garment. Who knows how she got through the crowd. She wasn’t made whole until she made physical contact with Jesus.
