Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. I John 3:16-18
Not only that, it is a commandment: “And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.” II John 1:6
"Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling savor. Ephesians 5:1-2
We have to understand that love is the greatest of the kingdom principles; that we love God with all of our heart and with all of our soul and with all of our mind and with all of our strength and secondly, that we love our neighbors as we love ourselves.
We show our love for God in our adoration, worship, and obedience resulting in outgoing concern, compassion, love and service toward others and by giving our lives as a living sacrifice.
Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
If we love the way God commands, we would not have the sorrow, violence, apathy, prejudice, anger, animosity, jealously, iniquity and hatred we have today. Instead, we would have love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness, longsuffering, temperance, meekness and faith; against which there is no law!
