    Live the Love Life

    "But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected:
    hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he abideth in him ought
    himself also so to walk, even as he walked."

    -- (1 John 2:5-6)

    There is nothing--absolutely nothing--that is more important than
    learning to love. In fact, how accurately you perfect the love walk will
    determine how much of the perfect will of God you accomplish. That's
    because every other spiritual force derives its action from love. For
    example, the Bible teaches us that faith works by love. And answered
    prayer is almost an impossibility when a believer steps outside of love
    and refuses to forgive or is in strife with his brother.

    Without love, your giving will not work. Tongues and prophecy will not
    work. Faith fails and knowledge is unfruitful. All the truths that you
    have learned from God's Word work by love. They will profit you nothing
    unless you live the love of God.

    First Corinthians 13:4-8 paints a perfect picture of how love behaves.
    It's patient and kind. It's not jealous or proud. It doesn't behave
    rudely or selfishly and it isn't touchy. Love "bears all things,
    believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."

    Sounds like a tall order, doesn't it? But don't despair. You are a love
    creature. God has recreated your spirit in the image of love. And He has
    sent His love Spirit to live in you and teach you how to love as He
    loves. You can live the love life. Why not begin today?

    And thanks to you who are at least reading. :wave:

    It's so hard to forgive and forget that's why I posted that first devotional..mainly because I, need it, and wanted to share everything I can get my hands on to bring others together and share the word. Then in the same breath tho we need to be reminded to walk in love. I have to pray and pray and ask God to help remind me to do this in ALL things..in everything I do. When I need an attitude adjustment I ask God to fill me with the Holy Spirit because believe me....I need it OFTEN! Easy? No. A must? Yes...if we want to be fruitful and receive the blessings God has in store for us! :hug:

    Blessings and prayers always!

    Liked your post, made me think.  I found a portion of a song that aptly describes mine:

    Sometimes inspection reveals unpleasant things.  :(

    I used to write and post a lot about love Faith. I agree with your posts. I did not make a long reply because it has become a diifficult subject for me to write about. The reason is I now try to keep my posts short as people will not take time to read long ones, and there is so much to right about love.

    Yes love is important. It is more than important. Love is ALL there is.
