To Love One Another {Scripture Saturday}

11:00 PM

By Sandra Wyatt

Welcome to Scripture Saturday!  Today we continue our memorization of verses found in John with verses 15:12…

This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

This love, that Jesus speaks about here, is very different than worldly love. We are to love, He says, “as I have loved you.” And what is true is that Jesus would never command us to do what is impossible for us to do.  We are to love in the same way that He loved His Father and in the way that made it possible for Him to love us.  In this same way we are to love one another… with the same quality of love. He loved us because God is love, and He was One with the Father. He was in the Father, and the Father in Him. As He yielded to that relationship, love flowed out. It could not help it--God is love. Since God is love, and as we yield to the Son, love flows from us. And it will have the qualities that His love has.

“So now faith, hope and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” (1Cor 13:13)
“Let all that you do be done in love.” (1Cor 16:14)

Have a precious and blessed day everyone!
