    Thank you God, Amen.

    Our Lord Jesus Christ demonstrated His unconditional love for humanity by death on the cross in order for us to be reconciled to the Almighty. What remains is for us to emulate His good example and we can fulfill our side of the bargain by loving God back through showing love one to another. Loving one another should not be a once off arrangement but rather a continued way of life. As children of God, the world will get to know who we exactly are if we love and continue in love.

    TITUS 2:11 FOR THE GRACE OF GOD THAT BRINGETH SALVATION HATH APPEARED TO ALL MEN --2:12--TEACHING US THAT DENYING UNGODLINESS AND WORLDLY LUSTS WE SHOULD LIVE SOBERLY RIGHTEOUSLY AND GODLY IN THIS --- PRESENT WORLD ---

    John 15:9 "As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love." Does the Father love the Lord Jesus Christ more than anyone else or any thing? So does the Lord Jesus love us who believe in Him. "AS the Father loves Jesus" according as He finds in Him all that is good and truly the perfect reflection of Himself: in like manner does the the Lord Jesus think about us. Father God sees in Jesus His Son and Jesus sees in us His little children with all the capacity and hope of growing up into a man after God's own heart, and everything a friend, a brother, or sister, should be. Someone who thinks about the other with reciprocal love and the same mind, and the same likes and dislikes one who has the same family traits. This love is what moves Him to release us of our debts, and never mention them again to us, when we're really sorry, and change for the better. This is the love that stays true and faithful when others raise a slander against you, and seek to humiliate and destroy you Jesus stays a true and faithful friend, and sticks up for you. If the Lord thinks likes this about us who believe in Him, and want with all our hearts to be pleasing and useful to Him how much should we also consider one another in the same way that we want Him to think about us! "Love wasn't put in your heart to stay love isn't love until you give it away!"
