Revelation Of Love part 1

I’m going to be working on a series here on my blog about true love and I know some from what God has given me. It was prophesied that God would give me a new revelation of love. So I’ve been getting into that and will be talking about it as he gives me more.

1 John 4:7-13(NCV)

7 Dear friends, we should love each other, because love comes from God. Everyone who loves has become God’s child and knows God.8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.9 This is how God showed his love to us: He sent his one and only Son into the world so that we could have life through him. 10 This is what real love is: It is not our love for God; it is God’s love for us. He sent his Son to die in our place to take away our sins.

11 Dear friends, if God loved us that much we also should love each other.12 No one has ever seen God, but if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is made perfect in us.

13 We know that we live in God and he lives in us, because he gave us his Spirit.

“Real love is not our love for God, But his love for us”.

That is very very powerful. There is more meaning in there and I know it but I want to see what you guys think. So feel free to discuss what you think this passage means.

1 John 4:16(NCV)

16 And so we know the love that God has for us, and we trust that love.

God is love. Those who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.

“God is love”. I think when we think about love we think about it as I love this person or about having relations with someone. But in no way is that what love is. God is love, And if we live in love we live in God. Thats really quite simple. If we want to grow and come closer to God we need to love others and get into God. Start studying him, start talking to him. Wow I really got this verse more now that I typed it out.

1 John 4:18(NCV)

18 Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love drives out fear. It is punishment that makes a person fear, so love is not made perfect in the person who fears.

In alot of other translations of the bible it says “perfect love casts out all fear” Then in other versus it says “God is perfect love”. Well I wonder what that means then. God casts out all fear its awesome how simply God is if we actually sit down and get to know him and study the word that he has given us. You know the word is another way to hear God’s voice. It’s probably the most common to. You can hear in many ways but God gave us his word so that everyone can hear him thru it.

1 John 4:21(NCV)

21 And God gave us this command: Those who love God must also love their brothers and sisters.

Ok brothers and sisters doesn’t mean our actually brother and sisters thru blood. When God talked about brothers and sisters he meant in Christ. So we must love all our fellow believers. But also there’s is another thing that God has given me and that is, Our brothers and sisters are everyone. We all came from adam and eve and in some way we all have a gene back to them so we all are related in some since if you keep going back for enough. So we need to love everyone if we are to love God.

Now it’s hard at times and I have a problem with it at times to. But its something God works with me on. So just ask him to help you out and you will do better.

Your never going to be perfect but God wants us to do better than what we are doing cause he knows we can never be perfect in a world with sin.

I think to often people think of Christians and people who think they’re perfect and were not. Now alot of people have right to think that cause alot of Christians put off as that and I hate it that they do that. We aren’t perfect and never will be but alot of christians wont tell people that. We strive to be better and grow closer to God and God helps us to be better people. But people think oh I’m a christian I’m perfect. It’s not so.

Also alot of christians think ” oh I’m a christian now everything is easy” Or “Oh now I’m a christian I got an easy way out”. It’s not true. Actually being a christian is harder way to live. you have people that don’t respect your decision to follow Christ. Like christ said ” he would be a topic that would start feuds”. Then when your a Christian Satan is going to try and tempt you in every way he can to make you fall cause he doesn’t want you to follow Christ. But thru all that it’s still awesome to be a Christian.

You have a friend that is always there for you and always has the right answer. Someone that understands and will always forgive you. Someone that if you turned your back on is always waiting for you to come back and turn around.

Really there’s alot of great things but God and their relationship with him is different for every christian.

Well I want to keep it short cause I want to add room for comments, suggestions and discussion. So post in the comments if you want to start discussion this or you can post in the forums you choose.

Much Love ~ Jeremy
