Every Proper Understanding Of God Must Be Rooted and Grounded In His Love

Jeremiah 31:3B Message
God told them, “I’ve never quit loving you and never will.”
Expect love, love, and more love!

God Is Love
God’s Will Is Always Love


Matthew 22:37–40
Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

John 13:33–35
33 Little children, I shall be with you a little while longer. You will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come,’ so now I say to you. 34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

God Made A Choice
Therefore, Love Is A Choice

I Must Choose To Love

I Must Choose To Love When People’s Flaws and Faults Irritate Me

Ephesians 4:2
Be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.

I Must Choose To Love When Their Words Or Actions Hurt Me

Proverbs 17:9 TLB
Love forgets mistakes; nagging about them parts the best of friends.

I Must Choose To Love When They Sin Against Me or God

Romans 5:8 NLT
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

“That He Gave”
Love Is An Act of Your Will. It’s A Verb

1 Corinthians 13:3-10
3-7 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
8-10 Love never dies.

God’s Love Is Impossible… Without God

Ephesians 3:17–20
17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

Love Is A Choice
Love Is An Action
God’s Love Is Only Possible With God
