Bible Verse for Today
“If you love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14:15)
People don’t really know what they call love. In this generation, people have mistaken love for lust. What is common in society right now is lust and not love.
There are many ways to prove our love. The first is in the Bible Text if we claim to have love or to love God, then we must obey God. Loving God is not by saying it alone, it is not only that way we can say we love God. Jesus said it plainly that if we want to prove our love for him, then we must obey him with all our hearts. Anything he says, we must be ready to do and to follow.
Paul knew what not having love can do to him. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3. It doesn’t matter the position you are in society or in the church, if you don’t have love, you will mean nothing to God. If you speak in tongues always and you prophesy without love, you will still mean nothing to God.
The nature of God is love, if you claim to know God and have no love, then you really don’t know God. 1 John 4:8 is a popular verse of the Bible that says, “He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.”
Another way to prove your love is by forgiveness. Love is pure and love forgives – if you don’t have forgiving spirit then you don’t have love on you. The Bible ordered us to forgive those who have offended us just like God prove his own love by forgiving us.
If God can prove his love for us by sending his son to die for our sins, then it should be a very easy thing for us to prove our love too.
