"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one
another as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."
........John 13: 34.
Remember the old song called, "What the world needs now is love, sweet love?"
We really do need to see more love in this world.  It all  begins with receiving
the gift of love, given us by our Lord.   We cannot really love others, as
we should, unless we have let Jesus fill our heart with His great love.
This world has been given the greatest gift of all, yet  many do not recognize or
receive it.  God loved us so much, He sent His only begotten Son into this
 world to die for our sins and bring us to Him. There is no greater love than
the love of our Savior, who was a willing sacrifice, that we might have eternal life.  He
 grew the tree which He knew would be the old rugged cross of Calvary.  Although
 man was sinful and disobeyed our Father's commands, God cared enough to send
 His very best that we might have eternal life.  
 Loving others with the love of the Lord will keep us blessed and happy as we
grow in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  True Christian growth begins
 with a love for the Lord and others as He has commanded.   When we build upon
a foundation of love, the fruit of the Spirit will be manifest in our lives and
 we will have true Christian growth and maturity.
Our Lord  not only loves us, He is the very embodiment of the essence of love.
  If we truly know the love of God, we will have a reverent fear for our Lord as we honor
 Him and obey His words.  God's Word tells us the greatest command is to love
God with all our heart, soul, and mind and we are to love our neighbor as ourselves.
We are to love others as the Lord has loved us.  Even when this is hard to do, we will
 find with the "agape type love" in our lives we can love others as Christ first loved us. 
 Love is an attribute of the Savior and will be made manifest in our lives when we
abide in the True Vine, Christ Jesus.
True love for one another acts out of a heart with the attributes of the Savior. 
 Love is an action word and will go the extra mile for others and stand
beside them  at all times. Love is kind and thinks the best of others while
seeking the best for them.  Love does not keep score of wrongs done, but will
return good for evil.  Love will never fail.  When we keep God's commands, we are
to keep them out of love, not fear or only because we know it is the right thing to do.
Loving our neighbor as ourselves is commanded by our Lord.  We know we 
have passed from death unto life when we really love our brothers and
 sisters as Christ loved.  This is an unconditional love. Even if one fails us
or disappoints us, we must keep on loving them and praying for others as
we would want others to do for us.   We cannot change a life or heart
as it is only by a work of Holy Spirit one is changed to be like Jesus.
May we seek the Lord daily and know His love which has been so
freely given.   A sure sign that we love Him is obedience to his
 Word and our love for each other.  God looks at the heart as it
  is his habitation.    When we show forth the love of God to others,
we know we are growing in the knowledge of our Lord and are
 true disciples of Christ. 
 Give thanks today for the greatest love of all as you continue to grow
in grace, knowledge of our Lord Jesus, and the love of God.
"....And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself
 for us as an offering and a sacrifice to God as a sweet smiling savior.."  
 {Eph. 5: 2}   It's a wonderful world when we walk in the love of
God with Christ Jesus our Savior.

"Let not your heart be troubled
Neither let it be afraid,"
Our Lord says, "I will always be with you
From the cradle to the grave."
He will never ever leave you
Nor forsake you in times of woe,
His spirit will comfort and guide you,
To lead you safely in this life below.
Though doubts or fear may at times oppress you
And troubles may try to get you down,
Just look up to the Loving Savior,
He can always be found.
So never let your heart be troubled,
Nor let fear reside within,
The one who loves and saved your soul,
Will always be beside you.... He is your dearest friend.
Blessings In Christ,
We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles.
The seen is the changing, the unseen is the unchanging.
One of the disconcerting facts about the spiritual life is that God takes you at your word.
Courage is never to let your actions be influenced by your fears.
There are enough targets to aim at without firing at each other.
Despair is the sin which cannot find--because it will not look for it--forgiveness.
Faith furnishes prayer with wings, without which it cannot soar to Heaven.
