Lesson 5: Pleasing Love

March 11 & 12, 2017

 

 

YOU ARE LOVE! THAT’S WHY YOU CAN LOVE!

GOD is love

1 John 4:8 But if a person isn’t loving and kind, it shows that he doesn’t know God - for God is love. The Living Bible

YOU are Love

Ephesians 4:24 ...and put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness... Amplified Bible CE

 

How we TREAT a Christian is how we TREAT Jesus

 

Acts 9:3 As he was nearing Damascus on this mission, suddenly a brilliant light from heaven spotted down upon him! 4 He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Paul! Paul! Why are you persecuting me?” The Living Bible

 

Acts 9:5 “Who is speaking, sir?” Paul asked. And the voice replied, “I am Jesus, the one you are persecutingNow get up and go into the city and await my further instructions.” The Living Bible

 

We must love UNBELIEVERS who live DIFFERENTLY than we do

 

Matthew 5:43“You’re familiar with the old written law, ‘Love your friend,’ and its unwritten companion, ‘Hate your enemy.’ Message Bible

 

Matthew 5:44 I’m challenging that. I’m telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves. Message Bible

 

Matthew 5:45 This is what God does. He gives his best - the sun to warm and the rain to nourish - to everyone, regardless: the good and bad, the nice and nasty. Message Bible
