7. What is love? How to love?

   The love of God(or our love to God as God love us) which comes from, the heart, truthful heart which is from or the result of conscious decision is true love and others are mistaken as love but they are desire, thought, or intense thought. Yes, we human being married each other because we have natural desire, if we have no natural desire marriage would have no existence.
   And, the love of God resulted in loving fellowmen.

   Love which comes from the heart of conscious is willing and ready to sacrifice, peace, sympathy, forgive, recorrect, or reform, give freely, and aid, or help. Love, which comes from the heart of consciousness, resulted in action, good deeds, or act of righteous. And this love, this heart of love can be obtain, through practice in Jesus Christ, by overcoming one’s sinful heart in Jesus Christ and replacing it with, or establishing, His character, His love which He had lived and preached.

   Let us look at Jesus Christ, by reading and thinking, or concentrating about Him, who overcome, Evil, Satan not only in His heart but also in real, in the wilderness, towns and in the cross on earth which is the kingdom of Satan. And He rebuilt, the beauty of man, the love of God in man on earth which Satan has destroyed. And whoever accepts Him, Jesus Christ, is a new creation in Him, indeed, the love of God(which has nodiscrimination, which love even enemies, which is in Him(Jesus)) is newly created in him.
   Yes, He teaches us what is the love of God and, how we should respond God, how we should love God by teaching us in practical, by being an example for us, by sacrificing for us in the cross. Yes, Jesus is our lesson. He is love, He is the way to God, He is truth, He is life, and we must learn from Him.

   God declare His love to us through our Saviour Jesus Christ. He declare to us that He love us till death and even death will not win, defeat, or overcome His love, even death will not deter His love but His love will overcome death. Indeed, it does, Jesus is the proof. And His love for us will never pass though the heaven and earth will pass. Jesus Christ has told to us by words and, actions, sacrificing His life in the cross. “Matthew 5: 17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 “For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.”
   We must live as Jesus Christ our Saviour live, and die, or sacrifice for God as He sacrifices. That is how we can also declare how much we love God. That is how we should response His love, the love of God.
   We know that Jesus Christ our Saviour obey God His Father and forgive His enemies, teach the words of God His Father and die, or sacrifice for Him, or sacrifice in Him(His Father) for the world.
   So we must forgive our enemies, teach the word of God and do good until death, until they also turn to God, who is our Father because of Jesus Christ our Saviour and sacrifice for Him, or in Him, for, Jesus Christ have forgiven us His enemies and in addition sacrifice for, us, His enemies to save us, so that we can turn to God and live with Him eternally. “Luke 6: 35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For he is kind to the unthankful and evil.”

   Because of Him our Saviour we can explain love, that is, love is sacrifice, love is peace, love is grace, love is forgiveness, love is obedience, love is teaching, love is free gift and aid, or help.
   Yes, love sacrifice, love harmonize, love sympathy, love forgive, love obey, love teach, love helps, love reform.

   Indeed, love is action, love is care and affection, of course, love is acts of righteousness. Love does adjust to other with love, yes, according to God.

   Love is a good, thought, attitude toward others, that is, everyone.

   Love is humble, love suffers and sacrifice on this earth and there will be no more suffering in the kingdom of God, and those whoever are worthy to enter and enter the kingdom of God are those who suffers and sacrifice for Him, God Our Father, and they will be called ‘who suffer and sacrifice for God’, for, they overcame by suffering and sacrificing for Him and they are and will be willing and ready to suffer and sacrifice for Him forever. But God will not allow to exist suffering nor allow them, His children, to suffer anymore, and it will not be possible for suffering to exist any more.

   Love has no discrimination, that is, love have no enemy, but only love is everything, truly, love is eternity, of course, Jesus is love and He is life, He is eternity. “John 14: 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.””
   Yes, Jesus is the only way to God, the truth of God and the eternal life, for, He is love. And only form Him we heard, or know the way to God, the truth of God, eternal life. Only from Him we know what is love? What is the greatest action of love and how to love. From Him we know the word and love of God His Father who is our Father because of Him. “John 15: 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” “John 15: 15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.”
   “Matthew 22: 37 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 neighbour as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
   “Matthew 5: 39 But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40 If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. 41 And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away. 42 give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away. 43 You have heard that it was said, ‘You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy. 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 That you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.”
   “Matthew 6: 1 Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.”
   “Luke 6: 31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.”
   “Luke 6: 35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For he is kind to the unthankful and evil. 36 Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.”


   This(as written here) is the only way to love our fellowmen in Jesus, that is to care, to have sympathy, to forgive, etc. This is the only way to love God. This is the only path to God in Jesus, indeed, through Jesus love is the only way to God.
   This is how we must walk in the light, in the truth. This is how we must have fellowship with God.

   But not everyone who give his life for other will enter heaven. No everyone who love other will enter heaven, for even the lawless people sacrifice and love those who love them.
   But those who sacrifice ones life according to God, those who love according to God will go to heaven but by grace. Yes, those who sacrifice his life for God, those who Love God will enter heaven.
   This is how we must love God, by keeping His ten commandments. "John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments."
   Those who are bornagain that is those keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus will enter His Kingdom. (Matthew 19: 16 - 21, John 3: 3, Revelation 12: 17, Revelation 14: 12)

   According to God, the greatest and most important action of love is to keep the greatest and most important commandments which Jesus have said, that is or means ‘to love God with all our heart, soul and mind’, and the second is loving other. And, that two is the Ten commandments of God. And, in that hangs, or that contains, the Ten Commandments of God, all the Law and the Prophets.
   If we love God with all our heart, soul and mind we will keep His commandments and the commandments of Jesus Christ who He sent, and also the word of His prophets including E. G. White, who He have sent, and also His prophet who He will send, or is going to send to us.
   Yes, the Ten commandments of God includes all the Law and the Prophets(which includes His prophet of the last of the time E. G. White and the one to come), for, they will no speak against it but according to it.
   “Matthew 22: 37 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 neighbour as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
   And whoever keeps the commandments of God really loves God.
   Yes, whoever keep the commandments of Jesus Christ which is written in Matthew 28: 19, 20, whoever make disciples and baptize and teach to keep the commandments of God, or tell, or preach the gospel of Jesus Christ truly loves God and Jesus Christ with all his heart, soul and mind, therefore, God and Jesus will love him and He, Jesus, will manifest to him, for, He have said so - “John 14: 21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

   Without love one is nothing but, love is not a parade, or display nor does it display. Love is not a play.
   “1 Corinthians 13: 1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.”
   “1 Corinthians 13: 4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 Does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 Does not rejoices in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease whether there is knowledge. It will vanish away.”

   If we love God with all our heart we will not do acts of righteousness before men but we will do it(for the glory of God) in secret, for, He command us through Jesus. And we will not say to other nor remember it so that it can be in secret. Yes, Jesus have command us, “Matthew 6: 1 Be careful not to do your 'acts of righteousness' before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven. 2 Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 3 But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly. 5 And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”
   This verses means a lot. So, let us pray for, understanding, wisdom of God, His Holy spirit and learn His word and concentrate.

   If we are to do acts of righteousness in secret husband and wife should also do their action, tender touch, like kissing, etc. in secret though they are not acts of righteousness but acts between married.
   If one display tender touch, or affection, or love in public or if one have an intention to parade, or display, his affection, his love it is disgusting in the eyes of God. A display of tender touch, or affection, or love in public is no more tender touch, or affection, or love(because, love cares, or love love everyone) but proudful or shameless act or thoughtless, exaggerating or unnecessary act.
   Married or unmarried who display their love intentionally or carelessly in public have received their reward and have no more reward from God except His punishment of proudful or shameless act or thoughtless, exaggerating or unnecessary act.

   Did not Married or unmarried have time at all to express or tell how much they love? Do they not marry because they love each other? Did not married couple have time as a husband or wife to tell their love to each other?

   Let us remember, Love works in time, love respond in time.
   And Love do not remember the, good deed, acts of righteousness which he have done.
   Love is not inconsiderate but consederateful, or thoughtful. Love, or those who have love think and care for not only loved ones but others, the people around, that includes even enemies. And they, who have love, also eat, the fruit, the blessing of love.
   Love is not thoughtless but thinks for far away and for everyone. Yes, love is not foolish, but wise, not limit but comprehensive and unfathomable.
   Love neglect no one at all, so, we must love God and love others – everyone – in the Him, for love is for all.
   If we are not to neglect, our brother or enemy, no one at all but love, then, how much should a married couple be careful in living a married life before, or among other, for, they must not love only each others but also care and love others in the Lord.
   If married care, yes, love others in the Lord as they love each other they would not perform acts(small or big) which exist between married couple, for, they care, yes, love others as much as themselves.
   But if they display or do before other, then, it would be abnormal, unrespectful or careless activity.

   So, if we love God and care and love other, the children of God, the follower of Jesus Christ would not do proudful and shameless act, or abnormal, unrespectful, thoughtless, or careless exaggerating, or over and unnecessary acts, like kissing in public, before other. If one display love, if one do such things it will even hurt more those who are lonely, if they are around.
   If it is to leave our husband, wife or loved one far away, handshake and bidding goodluck with hand is normal, or simple but good and respectful in public. Yes, the children of God, the follower of Jesus Christ must always do which is normal, or simple and good and respectful in the Lord. “Philippians 4: 8 Finally, brethren, what ever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy- meditate on these thing.”

   A true follower of Jesus, the children of, heaven, God would not imitate the acts of the children of the world, the follower of Satan, their sinful acts which grows worser and worser day by day as the world approach its end.
   If love does not neglect anyone then, it is certain that love love his home and the rest, it is certain that love loved not only loved ones but others and surely, even enemies for love is forgiveness. Love is to love everyone.
   Whoever cannot love his brother, or other, or enemies is not or cannot be a follower of Jesus Christ, for Jesus Christ is love and love is forgiveness. And, whoever cannot die, or sacrifice for God is not, or cannot be a follower of Jesus Christ at all but Satan, and his place is in hell.

   “Matthew 5: 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so?”
   If one say I have love and cannot forgive what love would that be? Are not lawbreakers, or revenge taker also cannot forgive other? Or, if one says I have love but love only those who love him what difference does he have with lawbreakers, what difference does he have with animals?
   Those who cannot forgive have no love at all. He who have no sympathy, or good deeds, or acts of righteous have no love at all but he was or is just living a life which even lawbreakers or animals do.

   A strong man is proofed when he lift extra weight, or when he do extra work which a normal person cannot do.
   Likewise, whether one have love or not is proofed, love is proofed when one forgive while people is doing bad things upon him, when one forgive those who commit adultery, when one forgive his enemy, when one have sympathy upon those who are pitiful, when one help those who need help in the word of God or physical or financial support, when one spread the truth, the commandment of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ, which the people of the world cannot do.

   Therefore, love is when we do not retaliate, or take revenge, when we love our enemy, when we love evil person, when we love those who do mistakes and those who is cruel to us, when we forgive and pray for forgiveness of the sins of those who is bad upon us, love is when we sacrifice, for the Gospel, for God, yes, the greatest action of love is to give one whole life for the, work, glory of God, to give one’s life, to sacrifice for God. Love never say ‘I cannot forgive’ nor ‘I cannot work for God.’

   Therefore, those who already have divorce must also forgive each other and be married again.
   If one have the love of God he or she will forgive in the name of Jesus. And one should forgive in Jesus, whether he repent or not, as God have forgiven us even before we repent but while we are sinning because of Jesus Christ.
   If one is to love his enemies why should he or she not forgive his wife or her husband, why should he or she not love his wife or her husband even if she(his wife) or he sin, they are not even his or her enemy.
   Let us remember what Jesus said to Peter, He told him to forgive seventy times seven. (Matthew 18: 22)
   Lack of forgiveness is a great sin, it is because of the lack of love and this(lack of love) is the greatest sin. God will not forgive those who cannot forgive other in judgment day after He has forgiven us because of Jesus Christ our Blessed Saviour. Yes, God will not love those who cannot love Him and others as He loves us.

   Yes, that is how we must love, and what is love.
  
   So, even if we have nothing in this world but have love we will die rich, for, the grace of God in Jesus Chrsit will be upon us and eternal life and eternal things will awaits us.
