LIVING A LIFE OF DEDICATION TO THE THINGS IN LIFE THAT MATTER THE MOST

WEEK6 Notes 2-14-15

 

Whatever you do, do it from the heart for the Lord and not for people. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭23‬ CEB)

And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (‭Mark‬ ‭12‬:‭30-31‬ NKJV)

HOW DO I INVEST MY LOVE INTO OTHERS?

WHAT IS LOVE?

LOVE IS A CHOICE
But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭14‬ NKJV)

LOVE IS AN ACTION
My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action. (‭1 John‬ ‭3‬:‭18‬ GNT)

1) EXPERIENCE GOD'S LOVE PERSONALLY

We love because God first loved us. (‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭19‬ GNT)

and I pray that Christ will make his home in your hearts through faith. I pray that you may have your roots and foundation in love, so that you, together with all God's people, may have the power to understand how broad and long, how high and deep, is Christ's love. Yes, may you come to know his love.....    (‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭17-19‬a GNT)

2) FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE HURT YOU
Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭13‬ NIV)

3) THINK LOVING THOUGHTS
Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. (‭Philippians‬ ‭2‬:‭4-5‬ NLT)

4) SAY LOVING WORDS OF APPRECIATION

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. (‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5‬:‭11‬ NIV)

Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭29‬ NKJV)

The right word at the right time is like a custom-made piece of jewelry, (Proverbs‬ ‭25‬:‭11 MSG)

A wholesome tongue is a tree of life,... (‭Proverbs‬ ‭15‬:‭4‬a NKJV)

5) ACT IN LOVING WAYS
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. (‭Luke‬ ‭6‬:‭27-28‬ NKJV)

Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. (‭Revelation‬ ‭2‬:‭4-5‬a NIV)
