The Power of Love

God has commanded us to treat each other in love as well. 1 John 4:19 – We love Him because He first loved us. God wants us to have an intimate relationship with Him based in faith and true love. The first rule in love is to love the Lord with all our hearts. Mark 12:30 – And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first comandment.
It is also described the lengths of which love goes in scripture. John 15:13 – Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Meaning, the strongest love is to lay down life for the sake of other.This is a type of selflessness that Christ demostrated on behalf of human at calvary.
God cares a great deal for you. He wants you to act in love and to love Him with all of your heart. We are to act in sobriety and forgiveness toward one another to accomplish God’s will.
