Gods Love and Compassion
Mat 22:37 Jesus replied:
"'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and
with all your mind.'
Now that you have done all that, it is time to plant. Once you get the seed in the ground you have to put the soil on top of the seed loosely, so it can get air. The next step is to keep checking on it and watering it. If it does not get the water it needs, it could wilt and die. Then you keep checking for weeds and make sure you pull them up before the roots get to big and starts affecting the plant or choking the growth or the root made cause the plant not to receive the right nutrients and die.
In the spiritual realm of planting and receiving a harvest, the nutrients that you need are in the knowledge of God’s Word. When you speak the Word with your mouth it sets the growing process in motion. Then you have to continue watering and confessing the Word as if it has already happened, so your spirit will receive the Word, because once your spirit has it, it has to manifest. You Get the RHEMA.
Phil 1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; KJV

Love (the Adhesive) Binds us Together
We all clearly understand that Agape Love is the foundation of the Kingdom of God, which is also called the Kingdom of love, because God is love. Today I would like to put more Love on our plate.
Love is the only thing that will not fade away. Agape (love) is eternal, and is everlasting. God (love) was in the beginning and God (love) is the ending. Any foundation that is formed without love will fall. Remember the more excellent way is walking in God’s love
Agape, the God kind of love is not like the human love, which is conditional. Agape love will do whatever it takes to set someone free. When Jesus cast out demons, to some that may not have looked like love, but look at what happened, they were set free. Praise God! Have you cast out any demons lately? Jesus would always meet the needs of all. Love is the Adhesive that binds the Body of Christ together.
1 John 3:18 “ My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.”
1 John 4:7 Amplified
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is (springs) from God; and he who loves his fellowman is begotten (born) of God and is coming (progressively) to know and understand God (to perceive and recognize and get a better and clearer knowledge of Him.
1 John 4:7 KJV
“ Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.”
Loving one another = you come to know and understand God and you have a better and clearer knowledge of Him
1 John 4:8 Amplified
“He who does not love has not become acquainted with God (does not and never did know Him for God is love”
1 John 4:8 KJV
“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.”
Not walking in agape (love) = you have not become acquainted with God and you never knew Him.
1 John 4:11 Amplified Beloved, if God loved us so much we also ought to love one another
1 John 4:11 KJV “Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.”
God loving us = us loving one another
1 John 4: 12 Amplified No man has at anytime (yet) seen God. But if we love one another, God abides (lives and remains) in us and His love (that love which is essentially His) is brought to completion (to it’s full maturity, runs it’s full course, it is perfected in us)
1 John 4:12 KJV “No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.”
Loving one another = God abiding in us, and love is brought to completion. It is perfected in us.
1 John 4:16 Amplified And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on the love of God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God and God dwells and continues in him.
1 John 4:16 KJV “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him”
Dwelling and continuing in love and God = God dwelling and continuing in you.
1 John 4:18 Amplified There is no fear in love (dread does not exist), but full- grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and (so) he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love (is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection.
1 John 4:18 KJ “ There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”
Love = No fear, but full grown, complete, perfect love
1 John 4:20-21 Amplified “If anyone says I love God, and hates (detests, abominates) his brother (in Christ), he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, Whom he has not see. And this command (charge, order, injunction) we have from Him; that he who loves God shall love his brother (believer) also.”
1 John 4:20 KJV “If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?“1 1 John 4:21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.”
Loving God = loving our brother also
1 John 5: 3-4 Amplified “For the (true) love of God is this: that we do His commands (keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and teachings). And these orders of His are not irksome (burdensome, oppressive, or grievous). For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and that is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith”
1 John 5:3 KJV “For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.”
“1 John 5:4 “ For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”
Being born of God (love) = overcoming and being victorious
I am going to sum it up with Ephesians 4:15-16
Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth (in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly). Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, (even) Christ (the Messiah, the anointed one.
For because of Him the whole body (the church, in all its various parts), closely joined and firmly knit together by the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied, when each part (with power adapted to its need) is working properly (in all its functions), grows to full maturity, building itself up in love.
