LOVE

ALOHA FAMILY AND FRIENDS,  Beloved of God,   John3:16

 LOVE      “WORTH CONSIDERING”     8/15/19   (Across my desk this morning)

 

Today’s Scripture
“We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.”
(2 Thessalonians 1:3, NIV)
Let Your Love Grow

God’s desire is to see you grow and increase in every area of your life, especially in your love for others. That’s because love is the greatest thing, and it is all that matters in eternity. At the end of the day, at the end of our lives here on earth, love is what will last forever!

Notice this verse tells us that love and faith are connected. It says in another verse that faith works by love. Love isn’t about feelings and emotions; it’s about the choice to treat people the way God tells us to in His Word. We are never more like God than when we are walking in love—when we are being patient and kind; when we are extending grace and mercy and forgiving others the way Christ has forgiven us. The more we know Him, and the more we know His Word, the more we will walk in love.

A Prayer for Today

“Today, I pray that your love will continue to grow and build a solid foundation for your faith. I pray that through your connection with the heavenly Father, you are strengthened in all of your relationships as you move forward into the life of blessing He has for you!”

 My Thoughts:

One time I ask the LORD what HIS definition of LOVE was.   Very quietly in my heart HE said these words,  “Love in the highest good for the other person regardless of personal cost.”  I have thought back about that a lot.  Really hard to measure up to.  In a song we use to sing in the Pilgrims call Charity there was one line that always got my attention, went something like this,  Jesus sings, when love prevales.  Seems that thinking about Jesus singing was somehow and exquisite thought about love.

 Of course 1 Cor. 13 is what the Apostle Paul felt to share with the Church and gives us a big banquet of thoughts about love.  John’s little letters also ring so true with GOD is LOVE.  That is why we have freewill.  Love can only exist in freewill.  Without free will, love has no foundation of truth.  So God has put up with the mess that we have made in order for the Elect may find their way into HIS LOVE, Image and Likeness for eternity.  Of course in HIS foreknowledge knew those who would truly come to love and obey HIM before the world was created. But in our dimension in time, every day is an new day.  Today will always the first day of the rest of your life.  So hope you choose wisely,  1 John 1:17 & Rom. 19:9-10

Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<><   www.Trinity-Aloha.org
