Do what the Word says and Love Your Neighbor as Yourself

What is love? God is love. Who is God? God is the Word. Know God. Know the Word and #loveyourneighborasyourself That is the simple answer to the problems we face. How do we love our neighbor? Love God with all your heart and "In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:6

"When a man's ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him." Proverbs 16:7

The bible shows us how and where we fall short in our lives. God will heal those areas in our lives if we admit we need His grace in the place of that weakness. With God, nothing is impossible.

4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:4, 5

This is the gospel, the good news. We can do this through Christ in us.

We, "Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time." 1 Peter 1:5

"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us," Ephesians 3:20

We must acknowledge this power. Not like these who,

"Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." 2 Timothy 3:5

Turn away from them. That is love. Because it's following God's Word and God is able to work through faith.

"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17

"But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. James 1:22-25

God, bless us with faith, bless us with zeal and a hunger for your word. Let your perfection shine through us. And all those that read these verses, may this seed fall on good ground within our hearts so it brings forth fruit an hundred-fold. In Jesus' Name I pray Amen
