A More Excellent Way—Love 7
We are to love one another. Loving each other is how all will know that we are His disciples. John 13:34-35.
We are commanded to love one another. John 15:12.
The law is fulfilled in one word, love. Galatians 5:14.
We have heard that since we started serving Jesus. I John 3:11.
If we love God, then we must love our Christian brothers I John 4:21.
Above everything else, we are to have fervent, sincere, genuine love for each other, and that love will cover a multitude of sins. I Peter 4:8.
Loving one another is not optional. If we do not love each other, then we are disobeying God. John 15:17.
This love is towards every believer. We are to love others as He has loved us. He has loved us and demonstrated it by Jesus dying for us. Romans 5:8.
We know about love because we have seen how God has loved us. I John 4:10.
This love means that we will give and sacrifice for the highest good of our brother. God gives us the Holy Spirit who will cause the love He has for us to be spread abroad through us. Romans 5:5
Loving is who we are. It is the fruit of the Holy Spirit in us. 1 John 3:14-15
Loving our brother is a sign that God has saved us and made us new. Matthew 5:43-44
Love is such a big deal for the Christian that we are to love even our enemies.
Love is the fruit of the Spirit. Love is who and what we are. We love others because He loves us.
