Love One Another

Not So Much to Be Loved as to Love

Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life. I’m back home in the house of God for the rest of my life.  Psalm 23:6

Dear Children,

I’ve loved you the way My Father has loved Me. Make yourselves at home in My love. If you keep My commands, you’ll remain intimately at home in My love. That’s what I’ve done ~ kept My Father’s commands and made Myself at home in His love.

Hold fast to the truth I have shared with you, but don’t hold on so tightly that you forget to let Me shine through you. It’s good to huddle, but be genuine. Look out for the lonely, famished, neglected ones . . . they are starved for Me, so share My love with them.

I know you are broken and hurting too . . . I have not forgotten. But when you realize that I can fill you up so full that you are bursting at the seams, it’s okay to “leak” a bit, for when you do, others will receive your shared blessings and come to know that I love them too.

I’ve told you these things for a purpose; that My joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature. This is My command; love one another the way I love you. This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends.

“. . . if God loved us like this, we certainly ought to love each other. No one has seen God, ever. But if we love one another, God dwells deeply within us, and His love becomes complete in us ~ perfect love!”

Love always,

Jesus

(John 15:9-14; 1 John 4:11-12, MSG)
