To Get A LIFE of Love You have to Lose Your Life

If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.  Mt. 10:39 (NLT)

Definition: Love is giving unselfishly to the needs of others without regard to personal recognition or reward”

Human Love is Responsive; God’s Love is Proactive

We love Him because He first loved us.  1 John 4:19

Therefore, I tell you, her sins, which were many, are forgiven, thus she loved much; but the one who is forgiven little loves little.” Lk. 7:47 (NET)

Our Greatest Aim Should be to Show God’s Love

Let love be your greatest aim…  1 Cor. 14:1 (TLB)

But the aim of our instruction is love that comes from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith. 1 Tim. 1:5 (NET)

Love does no wrong to a neighbor. Therefore, love is the fulfillment of the law. Rom. 13:10 (NET)

Love is More Than a Feeling

This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Jn. 15.12

Love is More Than a Decision

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. 1 Cor.13:3

To Show God’s Love we Must Choose to Feel  

Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, 1 Peter 1:22

Shift your Focus from Loving “Everyone” to Loving “One” at a Time

But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbour?” Then Jesus answered and said … So which of these three do you think was neighbors to him who fell among the thieves?” And he said, “He who showed mercy on him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”  Luke 10:29-30,36-37
