Love Being Made Complete- Pt 2
“And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.” – 1 John 3 vs 14 – 17 (NKJV)
As a recap, we started off this topic affirming that we ain’t gonna wait for valentine’s day, which is held once every year to show love. We Christians are not bounded or limited by such conceived of a culture, tradition or activity.
We are to love always, letting the love in the person of Christ Jesus to live amongst men in reality through us as His trusted vessels. Thus, I would like to conclude on how one could be affirmed with this statement… “That Love has been made perfect, complete and established in You”.
- “And we have known and believed the love that God has for us…”
John 3 v 16 (NKJV) says
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
As we grow in the word of the Lord, the more we grow in a revelatory knowledge and belief of not just God alone but of His love towards us through His son, Christ Jesus and the many benefits we are to experience God’s love to us.
Eph 3 vs 17 – 19 (NKJV) says
“… that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God thus, it is only and can only be through the word of God that we all could be properly grounded and established in the love of Christ.”
- “he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him…”- it is this revealed truth of God’s love that we are commanded (encouraged) to abide, dwell in the love of Christ amongst men.
John 15 v 12 (NKJV) says
“This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”
Rom.13 v 8 (NKJV) says
“Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.”
John 13 vs 34 – 35 (NKJV) says
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
It is in our daily lifestyle of loving in the patterned script of Christ Jesus to not only be confirmed by men but the word is affirmed in us. This covers the entirety of the law (Gal.5 v 14)
It is in living truthfully and insincerity in this, that the word of God can be unashamed and declare and affirm that… “Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.”
