Love – Horizontal Relationship

27 Mar

Pastor Niko, 23-Mar-14, Love – Horizontal Relationship

By this shall all [men] know that you are My disciples, if you love one another [if you keep on showing love among yourselves]. (John 13:35 AMP)

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. (John 13:34 NASB)

This I command you, that you love one another. (John 15:17 NASB)

We must encourage and stir each other

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NASB)

We need to sow a seed to bless others

We need to be in the love of God before we can love others

Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. (John 15:9 NASB)

so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, (Ephesians 3:17 NASB)

Let the love of God flow in your life before it flows to others.
