“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”
1 John 4:16 KJV
“And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.”
Mark 10:27 KJV
God can get us there, are we going?
Saints in Christ!
Don’t be deceived about our Father’s Love.
Love all, including the Lost.
Don’t Love the world and what the Lost do.
Still Love the Lost so much (only of course by the power of God’s Love can we do this.) Because we were the same as the Lost, prior to Christ.
Love the Lost so much that the Lost’s false pretensions about Love, deceived by the thief are exposed for the lie it is.
By living True Christ Love continually in Christ. The kingdom of darkness is swept away built on nothing but sand. While the Kingdom of God built on the rock of the Salvation by Jesus is all that remains.
1 Corinthians 13
Common English Bible (CEB)
Love: the universal spiritual gift
13 If I speak in tongues of human beings and of angels but I don’t have love, I’m a clanging gong or a clashing cymbal.
2 If I have the gift of prophecy and I know all the mysteries and everything else, and if I have such complete faith that I can move mountains but I don’t have love, I’m nothing.
3 If I give away everything that I have and hand over my own body to feel good about what I’ve done but I don’t have love, I receive no benefit whatsoever.
4 Love is patient, love is kind, it isn’t jealous, it doesn’t brag, it isn’t arrogant,
5 it isn’t rude, it doesn’t seek its own advantage, it isn’t irritable, it doesn’t keep a record of complaints,
6 it isn’t happy with injustice, but it is happy with the truth.
7 Love puts up with all things, trusts in all things, hopes for all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. As for prophecies, they will be brought to an end. As for tongues, they will stop. As for knowledge, it will be brought to an end.
9 We know in part and we prophesy in part;
10 but when the perfect comes, what is partial will be brought to an end.
11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, reason like a child, think like a child. But now that I have become a man, I’ve put an end to childish things.
12 Now we see a reflection in a mirror; then we will see face-to-face. Now I know partially, but then I will know completely in the same way that I have been completely known.
13 Now faith, hope, and love remain—these three things—and the greatest of these is love.

[ Warning about the world ] Don’t love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in them. Everything that is in the world—the craving for whatever the body feels, the craving for whatever the eyes see and the arrogant pride in one’s possessions—is not of the Father but is of the world.
1 John 2:15-16 CEB
