LOVE 101, PART 4

THE WHY

 Why does God love us?

  • Because He IS love      1 John 4:8
  • So that we may live through Jesus      1 John 4:9
  • Because He is faithful and made a promise to keep his love to those who love Him and keep His commandments      Deuteronomy 7:7-9
  • Because He is our creator and we were created FOR Him      Colossians 1:16

Why should we love God?

  • Because He first loved us      1 John 4:19
  • Because we will then receive His crown of life      James 1:12
  • Because He hears our voices and our cries to Him      Psalm 116:1
  • Because we have been redeemed with the precious blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ His son      1 Peter 1:18-19

Why should we love others?

  • Because God so loved us (sin and all)      1 John 4:11

  • Because everything is for not if we don’t have love      1 Corinthians 13:1-3
  • Because it is the greatest of all      1 Corinthians 13:13
  • Because it covers a multitude of sins and transgressions      Proverbs 10:13; 1 Peter 4:8
  • Because it creates unity      Colossians 3:14
  • Because God will not forget the love you have shown to others       Hebrews 6:10
  • So others will see and know that we are Christ’s disciples      John 13:35

Food for thought.

  1. Why have you not been loving God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength? What’s taking His place?
  2. Why do we pick and choose whom to show love to based on our feelings and circumstances when God chooses to still love us impartially despite our partiality?

 

O how I love Jesus because He first loved me!
