A Womans Walk with God | Love


Looking to God for Love 

God calls us as women who love God to:
walk in love (Ephesians 5:2) 
love one another (John 15:12) 
love our husbands and our children (Titus 2:4) 
love our neighbor (Matthew 22:39) 
love our enemies (Luke 6:27) 

Principles 
1. Love is an act of the will. 
His love in us is what enables us to five that love when we want to withhold; to reach out to others when we are tired and want to rest; to serve when we want to be served; and to help others when we ourselves are hurting. 
John 3:16 
Matthew 20:28
Luke 9:51 
It is God who gives us the will to love. He calls us to love. 

2. Love is action..not just words. 
1 John 3:18 God is at work in us, and will cause the glorious fruit of love to blossom in our lives as we walk with Him and do His work of love. 

3. Love reaches out to the unlovely. 
Matthew 5:43-45 and 6:32-33 
God's love is never deserved. 
Luke 6:35 Through the spirit God enables us to love, just as He loves us, everyone..all the time.. and without conditions. 

4. We need God to help us love. 
Our life then bears the mark of God because only He can enable us to serve the very person we would rather not. 
Romans 5:5 5. Love expects nothing in return. Luke 6:35 We need God's spirit to be at work in us if we are to truly love as Christ would have us love. 
Romans 5:8,10 
John 13:34 
Eph 5:22 

Aspects of love....
1 Cor 13:4-8 
Protect.
Trust.
Hope.
1 John 4:7-8 says that God is the SOURCE of love. 
The main point of this entire chapter is that God has poured out his love into us, at least we could do is repay him by pouring our love into others. Romans 5:5 

Now go on with your day girls and show some love!
Blessings till tomorrow! ~Melanie
