A love that is seen

John 15.9 : "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you, and abide in my love: if you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, as I have kept my Father's commandments, and I live in his love."


Definition : giving oneself or services for one's neighbor. Devotion movement that brings to love; give; help all people without benefits in return.


1 John 3.18 : "Little children, let us not love in words and with the tongue, but in deeds and with truth."


As we entered the world, sin had consequences that affect our daily lives. But the love of God for each of us has been incredibly demonstrated when he sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem us from sin and its influence. We love God, because he loved us first. If someone says, "I love God" and does not love his brother, he is a liar, because he who does not love his brother whom he sees, can not love God whom he do not see.


Colossians 3.23 : "Whatever you do, do it heartily, as for the Lord, and not for men...."


True love is the gift of oneself for one's neighbor. When you gave your life to God, you found yourself face to face with the love of your Heavenly Father. Whoever loves, is born of God and knows God. The divine essence is to love all men, including the most guilty.


1 John 3.16 : "We have known love, in that he gave his life for us, and we must give our lives for the brethren."


Jesus said, "If anyone loves me, he will keep my word." Keeping the Word of God means living in intimacy. We thus demonstrate that we know the Lord, we keep his teaching in the depths of our heart to live it. It is to be attached to his Word and applied it. Happy are those whose conduct is perfect and who follow the Law of the Lord!


Ephesians 3.17 : "So that Christ dwell in your hearts by faith, so that, being rooted and grounded in love, you may understand with all the saints what is the breadth, the length, the depth, and the height. from the love of Christ and to know that love that surpasses all knowledge, so that you are filled to the fullness of God."


The Bible says that when we accept Jesus, we are forgiven and God gives us a new life. When you start it here are three things that happen when God transforms you: you are forgiven, you show others how great God is and you become the light of the world. The disciples followed Jesus, they love him, and he knows it. So if we love Jesus, this love must manifest in our lives.


Ephesians 2.8 : "For by grace you are saved by faith, and it is not from you, it is the gift of God, not by works, that no one boasteth, for we are his work, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God hath prepared in advance, that we may do them."


God in his infinite grace, we offered his only son Jesus as a sacrifice to save us from sin. It is an act of incomparable love. He who abides in the love of Jesus Christ remains in God. Our love for the Savior will never be equal to his, he is imperfect, sometimes vacillating. But Jesus reads this love in the heart of his people, it is he who produced it, in answer to his perfect love. The Lord works day after day to make it grow.


Philippians 1.9 : "And what I ask in my prayers is that your love increases more and more in knowledge and full intelligence."


Conclusion : God is Love! (1 John 4.7). This is exactly what our Lord on the cross did for humanity. The grace of his Love transforms us, you are his masterpiece. That's why, the light of God will shine through you. In our walk by the Holy Spirit, God guides us continually in this way. It is a movement of devotion to help all people; like ; give; heal the sick ; to proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom. The main commandment of the Lord Jesus Christ is Love: "Love one another."


1 Corinthians 13.4 : "Love is patient, it is full of kindness, love is not envious, love does not boast, it does not swell with pride, it does not do anything dishonest he does not seek his interest, he does not irritate himself, he does not suspect evil, he does not rejoice at injustice, but he rejoices at the truth: he excuses everything, he believes everything, he hopes everything, he bears everything, love never dies." Amen!
