Day-by-Day – Day 9 – Love


101_1381

~John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

God’s love is entirely different than the love that we feel for our families and friends. His love goes beyond what we mere mortals comprehend the meaning to be. So much so, that He sent His Son to die for us before we could “clean up our acts.”

~Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Love is a word of “action.” God showed His love toward us by sending Jesus to die for us while we were yet sinners! He did not wait for us to do better. His love demanded action and He showed His love by dying for us so that we would not have to pay the penalty! Oh what love! Christ died for those who hated Him. He loved them despite their hatred of Him. And so He commands us to do the same.

~Luke 6:35 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.

I have seen an increase in Christ haters as well as haters of those who follow Him. Therefore, we are all the more accountable to this verse. Let’s show whose children we really are today!

    Ma Belle Kat,

    Your photos of the light house are just BEAUTIFUL!!! Thank you for sharing them with us.

    Thank you LORD for loving us!!

    GOD IS LOVE
    Come, let us all unite to sing:
    God is love!
    Let Heav’n and earth their praises bring,
    God is love!
    Let every soul from sin awake,
    Let every heart sweet music make,
    And sing with us for Jesus’ sake:
    God is love!

    Refrain

    God is love! God is love!
    Come let us all unite to sing that God is love.

    O tell to earth’s remotest bound,
    God is love!
    In Christ we have redemption found,
    God is love!
    His blood has washed our sins away,
    His Spirit turned our night to day,
    And now we can rejoice to say:
    God is love!

    Refrain

    How happy is our portion here,
    God is love!
    His promises our spirits cheer,
    God is love!
    He is our sun and shield by day,
    Our help, our hope, our strength and stay;
    He will be with us all the way;
    God is love!

    Refrain

    In Canaan we will sing again:
    God is love!
    And this shall be our loudest strain:
    God is love!
    Whilst endless ages roll along,
    We’ll triumph with the heavenly throng
    And this shall be our sweetest song:
    God is love!
