The Lifestyle of Love
1 John 4:7-11 (Part of the Does He Abide Within? series).
We can't explain why God loves us. You can never be loved like God loves you. Love is not just a word. One can talk love all day but words are simply words. People will talk about the cloud of discouragement and depression that follow them. Romans 5:6-8 People that are lost often feel that God hates them and others. If we are Christians, we are required to love. Mat 22:24 We must love God with everything within us and then love others. There are only two rules for living a Christian life. Love God first and foremost. After that we are to love one another as we love ourselves. If we are loving God with everything within us, we shouldn't have a problem with loving others easily. When God was willing to forgive you, then we also are to forgive others. 1 Jon 4:20-21 We are to love our neighbors  if we love God. We are not only required to love but compelled to love. If Christ lives inside you then He compels you to love others. 1 John 3:17-18 If you walk by someone that is truly in need and you feel no need to help, then are you loving God and a Christian? We often feel that their are those that deserve to be unloved, but if it wasn't from God WE would've been in the same boat. If you feel that there's nothing much you can do for someone, PRAY for them. Christians should be willing to get dirty, get in the ditch to help a person in need. How many of Christians are living this way? Is your love active? If you've been able to get over being saved, then you likely haven't been saved. Most church attenders will leave the church and never look to spread love. 1 Cor 13:1-3 People struggle and give the excuse about, "I don't know what to say...". Don't worry about what to say, let God say it for you, through you. If love (God) isn't the motivator then what's it for?

Sweeping it Under the Rug
1 John 2:26-29 (Part of the Does He Abide Within? series).
A sad place for a Christian to be is when God will not hear one. Sin is to blame for falling away. It doesn't matter what you want to call sin, if it goes against Gods Word then it's sin. It doesn't matter how old or how big you are, God has a work in you but unless you repent and rid yourself of the sin, God can't work. We have a teacher that sows us how to live our Christian lives. Just let God live in you! There is no excuse for allowing sin in a Christians life. It's never too late for a Christian to repent. Man has justified sin through their own lust. If you've been born again, there is a power within you that will hold you true. There is a time coming when Jesus WILL return to take His children home. That second coming will also bring a terror of judgement on those left behind. God knows where we are in our lives, He's not surprised by our sin and lifestyles. Those that are saved are saved eternally and can NOT lose their salvation because we do not hold our salvation. Those that are saved will be judged on that day on the second coming. Be confident in Christ and not just "happy that you'll get in" to Heaven. Having confidence in God means that you repent of those sins that you've made. How horrible it would be to stand before God ashamed because of an unrepentant heart/sin. 1 John 3:15 An assurance as a Christian is when God intercedes for our weeping of prayers. We as Christians should be looking for Him, ready in your heart and prayed up. 1 John 3:20-21 There are people today that can't forgive themselves of a horrible sin.  Satan is the author of confusion and therefore causes it with forgiveness. Satan doesn't want you to grow with Christ. In order to be right with God, you MUST be forgiven through repentance. 1 John 4:17 Since we didn't have to pay the price for sin, we have no value for it. But we need to have confidence in that payment. Love God with ALL of your heart and that means to repent so there is NO barrier between you and Him. If you are able to live your life with no consequences, then your not one of His.

Get Over It!
1 John 2:7-11 (Part of the Does He Abide Within? series).
We are to love with all of our heart. It's easier said than done at times. Love is an action. John 13:24 It's difficult to love everyone. 1 John 4:10 The challenge is to love those that are unlovable. The greatest example of love was when God gave His only son for our sin sacrifice. If you're born again, the love of God lives inside you. Christ loved us when we were sinners and so should we with others. The love of God goes beyond our normal way of thinking. Think about how you love your enemy. Would you want God to love you that way? If you've lived any length of time, you've had your love broken by someone. God loves ALL sinners, even the ones that hate you. If you can't love your enemy, you need to make sure that Gods love is truly in you. The flesh says, revenge is mine, but a Christian can't live that way. 1 Cor 13:4-8
