Love One Another–1 John 4 Part 2

It is not the archeology, it is not the artifacts, it is not the monuments, cathedrals or theologians–The greatest proof of God is his imprint of Love in all our lives.  In Romans 5:8 it says God demonstrated his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Unconditional love.  We see it preached in sermons, written in books, played out on screen and stage–BUT, as a design imprint, we also see it in every culture, religion, class, race and demographic.  Unconditional love is our default setting in the times of greatest need and hopeless circumstance.

In our lives, however, it is more than that.  We affirmatively choose to love one another, in all circumstance.  Like all families, we get frustrated and annoyed by each others unique traits, but, we never give up and we always love each other no matter what the circumstances are.  It is the most accurate picture of God we have.  It sends us into the fire and across the world–in his name.  It also brings us to our knees in prayer and to our Bibles for direction.  We Love God and we Love one another–God on Display all day every day.

God Bless You

Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. 10 This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.

11 Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. 12 No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.

13 And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us. 14 Furthermore, we have seen with our own eyes and now testify that the Father sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15 All who declare that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God. 16 We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love.
