Sermon on the Mount: Remember Love

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!

Seek ,seek

Seek it

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

Matthew 5:17

“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.

 

Matthew 22:40

All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.

Romans 13:8

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.

Romans 13:10

Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

Galatians 5:14

For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.

James 2:8

If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right.
