The way of love(revisited)

Shalom,

Yahweh told me not long ago that I would be writing about love.Today was the day. I pray the Holy Spirit guides me as I write this. I thank Yahweh first for HIS agape' love. Agape' is love which is of and from Yahweh, whose very nature is love itself. The Apostle John affirms this in 1 John 4:8: “God is love.” Yahweh does not merely love; HE is love itself. Everything Yahweh does flows from His love. That is agape' love. Yahweh's love is displayed most clearly at the Cross, where Mashiach died for the unworthy, (You and me)creatures who were “dead in trespasses and sins” (Ephesians 2:1), not because we did anything to deserve it, “but Yahweh commends His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Yeshua died for us." Yahweh sent His ONLY begotten Son into the world to “seek and save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10), and to provide eternal life to those He sought and saved. He paid the ultimate sacrifice for those He loves.

Yahshua paid OUR debt, while we were still sinners. Think about this. You are standing in front of a judge. The judge reads all you have done in your life.Your punishment. A life sentence. Then the judge pauses, and says, YOU MAY GO, YOUR DEBT HAS BEEN PAID. As you stand there trying to understand all of what you are hearing the judge further explains that someone else has taken your place. They paid your debt. Yahshua paid OUR debt, HE set us FREE from eternal damnation. Will you accept HIS agape' love? Will you accept the cross HE has asked you to carry? Will you love others as HE has loved you? Will you forgive others as HE has forgiven you? Or will you die to your sins? If we are to love as God loves,that agape' love, which can only come from Yahweh himself.Romans 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given to us. Because that love is now in our hearts, we can obey Jesus who said, John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. Because of God’s love toward us, we are now able to love one another. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 1 Corinthians 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have faith, so that I could move mountains, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
The LORD instructs us to rest in him. The ultimate teacher, Yahshua, Showed us what it means to rest in Yahweh. Once we remove the trappings of the world in our life and be thankful for whatever we receive, not requiring anything more than what we need, then we will be at rest in the LORD and able to see his love and ultimate sacrifice of his son Yeshua, who became as a servant to all mankind. We will then also be able to fulfill the second commandment Yeshua gave to us which is to love each other as he so loved us (see John 13:1 to John 13:20). 1 Corinthians 4,5 and 6: Charity (which is love) suffereth long, and is kind; Charity envieth not vaunteth not itself, is not pufffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Matthew 26:37-40 Jesus said unto him, THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART, AND WITH ALL THY SOUL, AND WITH ALL THY MIND. (38) THIS IS THE FIRST AND GREAT COMMANDMENT. (39) And the second is like unto it, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF. (40) On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Amen.
In Yahshau's name

While growing up there was this one particular song that inspired me. The closing words of the song really had a big impact on me. The Song: "Love is the answer" by England Dan & John Ford Coley. John has given me permission to give you the whole song. Thank you John and most importantly, thank you Yahweh for bringing John home.In Yeshua's name. Amen.

And when you feel afraid
Love one another
When you've lost your way
Love one another
And when you're all alone
Love one another
And when you're far from home
Love one another
And when you're down and out
Love one another
And when your hopes run out
Love one another
And when you need a friend
Love one another
And when you're near the end
Love
We've got to love
We've got to love one another
