These things I command you, that ye love one another. John 15:17 KJV

THE COMMAND OF LOVE
Love means showcasing the deep interest, affection, enthusiasm, and good disposition to another. God is love. Love is God. It is the greatest of all the godly virtues. Love is the conclusion and fulfilment of all the laws. Love will forever always precede forgiveness, mercy, favor, generosity, grace, kindness, respect, and much more even salvation. A successful home is built and sustained in love. Strife, quarrel, war, treachery, suspicion, taking record of sins, revenge, hatred, etc, take over where love is absent. God gave Jesus because of His love towards mankind. Jesus sacrificially gave His life for the sake of love. Love therefore covers multitudes of sins. It is the mother of joy, peace, laughter, good communication, and graceful understanding among the brethren. So, love God with all your power and might, and love neighbours as your self. This is the triumph you have over all the laws of God and man. I implore you to always dwell in the Spirit of love. That is the only sure route to perfection. Love doesn’t fail. It is ever the best. May you be able to genuinely love God above all things. May you be enabled to love fellow men as you love yourself. It is hypocritical claiming you love the God you cannot see, and nurse disaffection against the human beings you can see. Love brings about the compulsion to passionately preach the gospel to salvage the dying world. No law is against love. Blessings. Shalom!
