'Love One Another'

Leviticus 19:18 NLT
Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge...but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.

John 13:34

So now I am giving you a new commandmentLove each other. Just as I have loved youyou should love each other.

1 John 3:23

And this is His commandment: We must believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.

Ephesians 5:2

Live a life filled with lovefollowing the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.

1 John 4:10-11

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. Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other

I needed a “love” reminder today, brothers and sisters in Christ! Here's what I was reminded of...

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud  or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

Love each other as brothers and sisters. (1 Peter 3:8)

Show deep love for each other, for love covers (and)...makes up for all offenses. (1 Peter 4:8, Pr 10:12b) 

Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. (Ephesians 4:2)

Let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God. (1 Jn 3:18-19)

Now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart. (1 Peter 1:22)

Heavenly Father, since we are "a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal” when we don't love others, since we are “nothing” and we gain “nothing” when we don't love others, and since we have been commanded to “Love each other just as (You) have loved” us —help us understand the “importance of loving each other, for (You have) taught (and commanded us) to love one another! Indeed,” help us increasingly practice and “show (our) love for all the believers”...and help us increasingly respond to the Spirit's urging and enabling“to love them even more” (1 Thessalonians 4:9-10). We ask this in Your Son's name, Father, on account of His command and Your great love of us...
