John 13:33-35 In preparation for his departure from the earth and with his
suffering in sight, Jesus gave a new commandment to love as he loved.

John 14:15-23
Love and obedience to his commandments are connected.

John 14:31
Jesus held himself to the same standard demanded of us. The world
will know he loved the Father because he obeyed His commandments unto the
death of the cross.

John 15:9- 17
These things I command you, that ye love one another.

John 15:19
If ye were of the world, the world would love his own.

John 17:26
And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it.

Romans 13: 8
True lovers do not feel like they are owed something, rather that
they owe everything to God. They are not interested in getting but in giving.
Service is the passion of their soul. Lovers find their value in God’s love for them
and not from the world or anyone in the world.

Ephesians 2:1-10
One major mindset that keeps people from walking with
God and enjoying a successful in life is “something for nothing.” This attitude
is crippling and attacks the fundamental precepts of our faith and the core of a
person’s commitment center.

For immature people, carnal people, there are few things in life resented more
than responsibility.

Matthew 24:12; Revelation 2:4 and 5
Keep on loving!
