God said “I Love You” First

God said “I Love You” First

1 John 4:19 (KJB)   We love him, because he first loved us.

God loved us when we were unlovable.  There is nothing inside the natural man that is appealing or even distantly attractive, yet God sees only a perpetual potential for every person.

Yes, God views a man through what he can be, rather than what he is today.

God loved you and me enough to perceive only spiritual possibilities rather than potential problems in our flesh.  ...

Love the Stranger

Deuteronomy 10:19 (KJB)   Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

God knows and loves every man, woman, and child.  There is no such thing as a stranger to Him.  God is calling attention to the fact that all people were once strangers in the land of Egypt.

Yes, even if you have been saved for many years, there was a time in your life when you were a stranger in the ...

Hate Evil and Cling to Godliness

Hate Evil and Cling to Godliness

Romans 12:9 (KJB)   Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

Imagine if this verse were practically applied by every person professing to be a loving child of Christ.  It would certainly magnanimously change the cloudy and dark atmosphere found at work in this world.

Simply put, it is choosing to turn from evil to that which is godly.  This sounds simple, but it is often spiritually ...

True Love Breeds Action

True Love Breeds Action

1 John 3:18 (KJB)   My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

Sincere love will certainly demonstrate itself in action.  Words are flowery but cheap and easily discounted.

Tell me you love me and perhaps it is true, but certainly words can be cheap!.

Show me you love me and your action cements this truth in deeds.

Those who have the love of God at work in their softened ...

Strangers and Aliens were To Assimilate

Leviticus 19:33-35 (KJB)   And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him.  34 But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.  35 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.

Yes, God ...

Love or Hate

August 7th, 2017

Love or Hate

John 15:23 (KJB)   He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

Anyone who hates Jesus Christ hates God.  For they are one in the same Spirit, not divisible or separable.

The Bible tells us that many foolish people in this world hate even the name Jesus Christ.  Just the mention of His name draws ire and anger welling up in the heart of any person with heart hardened towards things of God.

The mention of God, Jesus Christ, or ...

No Greater Love

July 4th, 2107

No Greater Love

John 15:13 (KJB)   Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

On this day of celebration and fireworks take the time to contemplate upon the History giving you and I a reason to celebrate.  Without the determination of early settlers in the United States, perhaps you and I would live under British rule.  We live in this great nation with freedoms granted by God, The Declaration of Independence, and ...

Love Without Hypocrisy

Love Without Hypocrisy

Romans 12:9 (KJB)   Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

The Apostle continues to express responsibilities of a professing Christian.  He comes to defining sincere love.  A Christian is persuaded to emit genuine love.  A love that cannot be perceived as anything other than that which is true and originates from the inexhaustible supply from God.

Love that is dissimulated is a love that is disguised or concealed.  It ...

Loving selflessly

Loving selflessly

Luke 6:32 (KJB)   For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.

Genuine love for another person is made up of a delicate balance of loving, serving, rebuking, and encouraging them.  Loving loveable people is easy and comes quite naturally but loving the unlovable often involves a cost to doing so.  Sincere love is made possible through the supernatural power and presence of God and carries a ...

Unquenchable Love

January 21, 2017

Unquenchable Love

Song of Solomon 8:7 (KJB)   Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.

The book of Son of Solomon is often the most misunderstood book of God’s Word.  It is a book which speaks of the love between God and His church and applicable in a portrait of love found in a marital relationship between a man ...
