LOVE YOURSELF


To fulfill the whole Law and the Prophets we must:

Matt 22:37-39, Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

YOU HAVE TO LOVE YOURSELF!

BUT

How can you love yourself if you do not understand the LOVE the Father has for YOU?

FOR US TO SHOW HIS LOVE, WE MUST UNDERSTAND AND RECEIVE HIS LOVE!

1 Cor. 13:4-7, Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

LOVE NEVER FAILS!

Father’s love for us is PATIENT – Long-suffering, willing to wait, not overlook sin, but be present when we get back on track.

Our Father is patient – willing to wait for us when we are being stupid!

Our fleshly love gives up on people.  We say enough is enough, but our heavenly Father’s love will never give up on us. 

WE HAVE NEVER GONE TOO FAR THAT HE WILL NOT BE THERE WHEN WE TURN BACK TO HIM!

The Prodigal Son is a great example.  Luke 15:11-32, the son demanded his inheritance and spent every dime on partying, and then found himself slopping the pigs.  He came to himself!  Today if you are not right with Jesus I pray you come to yourself!  When he came to himself he said it would be better to be a servant in his dad’s home than slopping pigs.  HE WENT HOME!  His dad met him, shouted for joy, and threw a celebration because his son had come home!

HE WAS PATIENT!

OUR FATHER IS PATIENT FOR YOU!  Stay close to Him, and if you are away, COME HOME!
