Christ Love is Real. So Really Love.
7“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 9Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” ~Matthew 7
Do not forget what has been taught you
The goodness of the LORD is upon you
The strength of His love overpowers you
Do not forget what has been done for you
A prayer in the heart
The Lord is infinitely good
A prayer on the tongue
He plans the good of His people,
The glory of His Name
Let it be
He puts to justice murderers
And extends the arm of love
He puts to justice the thief
And gives abundantly to those He loves
Bring it out
You need to speak it
He tears down the strongholds of the proud
And builds up the fortress of the humble
You need to ask it
The Good Lord does not spurn the request
But provides what is needed, and very much more!
The Lord knows what is good and right
It is time to knock, knock
At the door
He overflows with righteousness
And from this remember
He does the same for your sisters and brothers
And from this remember
We all were like our lost sisters and brothers
As God extended the hand of mercy
So extend your hand
As God extended the arm of love
So extend your arm
Obey Him out of deep love for Him
As He deeply loves you
Obedience to Him is love of others
So deeply love them
Remember what has been taught you
So deeply love
9“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” ~John 15
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.
Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.
If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right.
