LOVE Those You Hate

GUWGStopHateLOVE-O-RAMA 2021 continues here on GUWG.

Think of the one person on this planet you despise more than anyone else.

Here’s what Jesus said we should do about people like that:

LOVE them.

Here are his exact words:

Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:44-45)

LOVE Rules

It’s LOVE-O-RAMA 2021 here on GUWG. Today, we’ll look at what Jesus himself said about love.

Some religious scholars were trying to figure out which of their zillions of rules were most important. So they asked Jesus:

Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?

Jesus replied:

LOVE Power

To me, the freakiest part about being a Christian is that God — the creator of the universe — comes to live IN you. The Bible says:

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? (1 Corinthians 6:19)

LOVE God

It’s LOVE-O-RAMA 2021 here on GUWG.

As we discussed yesterday, Christianity isn’t about following a bunch of rules and regulations. It’s about relationships. God wants us to (1) love Him and (2) love others. It’s that simple.

But how exactly do we “love God”? Isn’t that like trying to find a gift for the proverbial guy who’s got everything (literally)?

Not at all. God gives us free will. We can either love Him or reject Him. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be true love.

So, what does the Bible say? It couldn’t be clearer:

LOVE Starts With God

Yesterday, we talked about WHAT love is. Today, we’ll talk about WHO love is.

It all starts here …

God is love.
(1 John 4:16)

When you get right down to it, the Bible is one gigantic love-fest. But few words in the English language are as misused and misunderstood as love. To help remedy that, from now thru Valentine’s Day we’ll take a look at love from God’s perspective.

So, what exactly is love? Here’s the Bible’s definition. Ask the Holy Spirit to help every single syllable seep deeeeep into your .

Love, Love, Love

Some religious scholars asked Jesus:

Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?

His reply changed the world forever. He said:
