Abide in His Love

February 28, 2020

1 John 4:16 Amplified Bible (AMP)
16 We have come to know [by personal observation and experience], and have believed [with deep, consistent faith] the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides continually in him.
Know and abide in God’s love
On His love rely –1Jn 4:16
The Lord’s love NEVER fails –1Cor 13:8
Never comes to an end! –1Cor 13:13
Abide in His love
=>Your joy will be made full and complete! –Jn 15:9-11
1 Corinthians 13:8, 13 Amplified Bible (AMP)
8 Love never fails [it never fades nor ends]. But as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for the gift of special knowledge, it will pass away. …
… 13 And now there remain{abide}: faith [abiding trust in God and His promises], hope [confident expectation of eternal salvation], love [unselfish love for others growing out of God’s love for me], these three [the choicest graces]; but the greatest of these is love.

John 15:9-11 Amplified Bible (AMP)
9 I have loved you just as the Father has loved Me; remain{abide} in My love [and do not doubt My love for you]. 10 If you keep My commandments and obey My teaching, you will remain{abide} in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain{abide} in His love. 11 I have told you these things so that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy may be made full and complete and overflowing.
