Love Divine

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  Matthew 22:37-39   

Love is patient, Love is kind,
In Jesus Christ, find Love divine,
A greater Love you will not find.

With all your heart, let True love shine.
By trusting in God’s only Son!
In Jesus Christ, find Love divine.

God’s promise cannot be undone,
Lord Jesus Christ, God’s glory now.
Trust in the one and only Son! 

For on that Day, our heads will bow,
As we declare on bended knees,
“My Christ, My Lord”- God’s glory now.

Love always hopes and longs to please,
Lord, teach us how to Love this way!
By fear and trembling on our knees,
 
Please make our hearts Your home each day.
Lord, teach us how to Love this way.
Love is patient, Love is kind,
A greater Love, you will not find!

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

  1. Greetings. Praise God for his immeasurable love that he has for us. May we each have an unbridled love for the saints and a fervent love toward them who are outside the household of faith.

    Have a blessed day in Christ.

    We think we know how to love and or understand love, then we read of Jesus and His love and nothing compares.
