SIGNS OF LOVE
There are many outward signs of love,
To show we are children of God above.
First, consider, we must show we care,
And if we’re needed, to always be there.
Another sign of love is concern,
Showing an interest, this we must learn.
Compassion too, we must always show,
As God in Heav’n on us does bestow.
True love will always reveal kindness,
A soft, tender heart; we must possess.
Yet another sign is humility,
Pride must NOT be our identity!
Patience is something we must not forget,
Losing our temper, we’ll always regret!
Gentleness is a sign of true love,
A fruit of the Spirit, from God above!
If we truly love, we will forgive,
As God forgives us, each day we live!
Helping each other in time of need,
If one is hurting, we should pay heed.
A great sign of love is faithfulness,
There in troubles, small or serious.
We must learn to love with the love of God,
If we want to please Him, as we trod.

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO GOD THE FATHER, WHO IS IN HEAVEN!!!
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV) Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (KJV) Only JESUS can save your soul! Please believe this!
Galatians 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [KJV] (Also see Matthew 7:12) Do unto others!
Matthew 25:31-40 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:  And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.  Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:  Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.  Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?  When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?  Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. [KJV] Jesus’ Words.
God’s love and what the world considers love cannot be compared. In my Bible classes I teach that love is the 3 C’s: care, concern and compassion. If you truly love someone, you are attentive to their every need because you care for them. Your concern for their well-being brings about sincere feelings and thoughtfulness. You take an interest and you don’t hesitate to get involved. Your heart is truly sympathetic when they have sorrow or distress. You reach out to them with tenderness, consideration and mercy because you have compassion. This is the kind of love that God bestows upon us. The world’s love is sex, lust and selfish demands. True love is NEVER selfish, nor demanding! Many wrongly declare: “Marriage is a 50/50 proposition.” If BOTH parties are not willing to commit 100% to the relationship, the marriage is doomed before it starts!
If we as God’s children would show more true love to God and each other, the world would be a better place.
We as TRUE Christians, MUST love!!! It is a Command, NOT an option! 1 John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (KJV) We are permitted to ‘hate’ only the things that God hates: SIN, wickedness, evil, etc. We must not hate our brothers and sisters in Christ, or God states that we are a “murderer.” 1 John 3:15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. (KJV) VERY STRONG LANGUAGE!!
In the Greek language, there are three words for our one word ‘love.’ Agape, phileo, and eros. We are to love with the kind of love that God has. It shows kindness, patience, compassion, meekness, etc. We are not only to SAY we love . . . we are to show it (Jam.1:22). God’s love is called agape love. We CANNOT produce this kind of love (Rom.7:18). It is one of the “fruits of the Spirit” (Gal.5:22-23). It is produced ONLY by God’s Holy Spirit which abides in us. Phileo love is brotherly love, affection; for family and friends. It is human love in its highest form. The third form of love is eros. We know it as passion, lust, sex. When the world thinks of love, this is generally of what they think. When I say world, I am speaking of those who do not know Christ as their Saviour.
