THEME: THE ANCIENT PATHS
1 John 3:11
“For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another,”
-We have heard the message of love from the beginning, that lead us to the ancient paths. When the Sadducees and Pharisees gathered and one of them questioned Jesus asking, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets” (Matthew 22:36-40). It is through love that we accomplish the law, for anyone who loves God keeps His commandments. According to 1 John 2:15-17, one cannot love God and the world at the same time, for the love of the world includes the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, which are not of the Father but of the world. It is through love that we seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. It is also through love that we demonstrate faith and works, by uplifting one another in times of need. It is through love that we live like Jesus did and follow His will. It is through love that we know the heart of God and follow after it; like king David did. It is through love that each one walks in their God given destinies, all to the glory of God.
We give thanks to You Lord, for You are good and Your love endures forever. We give thanks to You God of gods, for Your love endures forever. We give thanks to You Lord of lords, for Your love endures forever. For You alone do great wonders, Your love endures forever. By Your understanding You made the heavens, Your love endures forever. You spread out the earth upon the waters, Your love endures forever. You made the great lights, Your love endures forever. God You are good and Your love endures forever. Thank You for loving us with such great love, that You sacrificed Your Only begotten Son for the sake our sins, Your love endures forever. We love You Jesus for You loved us first, grant us the grace to love and sacrifice for one another as You will. Grant us the fruit of love that we may love You and one another as You will. Teach us to look for love in every relationship and interaction. Train our hearts to carry our own crosses and follow You. Help us to seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness, and all other things You will add unto us. Help us to seek after Your ancient paths that are rooted in love. All glory, honor, power, praise us love, belongs to You Jesus, now and forever. Amen
