Love – is not a four letter word – Repost

It is…

  • a commandment of the Lord – Matthew 5:43
  • an admonition to do good to those who persecute you – Matthew 5:44
  • a practice of the Church toward each other – John 13:35
  • an indicator of one who follows the Christ, Jesus – John 14:15
  • a laying down of your life for others – John 15:13
  • consideration of your neighbor – Romans 13:10
  • a manner of proper correction – 1 Corinthians 4:21
  • and also a manner in which we must walk – Ephesians 5:2

There are so many other examples of love in the Scripture. Most notably the love of Jesus Christ who laid down His life for sinners, that they may come to God in repentance and granted salvation. I could be wrong, but it seems like this one characteristic of the Christian life is often taught, but rarely practiced. Let us remember these things in our reactions, interactions, and dealings with others today. And tomorrow as well.

I love writing about books, theology, and the Kingdom of God. I also enjoy viewing my vocation through a biblical lens. It is here at Seeking A Kingdom that I aim to hash out my thoughts on all these things.
