Love

Do you love? Of course you do. You have your mothers and fathers and sisters and brothers and husbands and wives. You have your whole family and friends. You love them all. Why do you love? Scriptures are very clear on this. It talks about love all the time.

Who else can talk about love than he who created it?
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 KJV
The apostle Luke tells us how we should love one another, even our enemies and even lend to them without expecting anything in return. 
“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 KJV
Your love can’t be fake. 
Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Romans 12:9

God IS love. 
“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.”
1 John 4:7-12 KJV
And the best kind of love. 
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
John 15:13 KJV
So I urge all my fellow Christians to love. Love yourself, love your neighbors, love you enemies, and love God.
