Your Good Point On "loving Ones Fellowmen

Postby Taren » Sun Dec 04, 2016 6:30 am

There is no doubt about it, such love is important.  "Do not owe anything to anyone except to love one another; for whoever loves his fellow man has fulfilled the law."(Rom. 13:8) But being a Christian involves more than simply being kind to our neighbor. Jesus said that his true disciples would be outstandingly identified by their love for one another, for fellow believers . "By this all will know that you are my disciples—if you have love among yourselves ."(John 13:35) The importance of that is emphasized repeatedly in the Bible. "So, then, as long as we have the opportunity, let us work what is good toward all, but especially toward those related to us in the faith .(Gal. 6:10)

"Above all things, have intense love for one another , because love covers a multitude of sins."(1 Pet. 4:8)

"We know that we have passed over from death to life, because we love the brothers . The one who does not love remains in death.... By this we have come to know love, because that one surrendered his life for us, and we are under obligation to surrender our lives for our brothers ."(1 John 3:14, 16, 17) However, Jesus showed that even more important is our love for God himself, which is shown by our obedience to his commandments. "And one of them, versed in the Law, tested him by asking:  “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”  He said to him: ‘You must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind.’  This is the greatest and first commandment. "(Matt. 22:35-38)

"For this is what the love of God means, that we observe his commandments; and yet his commandments are not burdensome,"(1 John 5:3) To demonstrate such love, we need to study and apply God’s Word and assemble with fellow servants of God for worship.
