1 John 4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
Masters love your servants. Jesus said, “Love one another as I have loved you.” Despite knowledge of Judas Iscariot as a thief and one that would betray Him, His love for him did not diminish. Make up your mind to increase in your love level, both in personal life and in the church. The time of rapture is at hand, so let there be fervent love among you. That you are rebuked or chastised doesn't mean you are not loved.
Revelation 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. In case you have been withdrawing yourself because of rebuke, you had better repent because it is intended to achieve something of eternal value in your life. Love and truth work together.
John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. Love in the world seem to be directed by tribal sentiments and money power. That kind of love is emotional and not original. It is like the morning dew that appears for a while and then disappears. Such conditional love cannot last.
The love of God is not like that. The love of the world is a fading love. Let us move to the higher love of God.
1 John 4:7-12  Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.  No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
Thought for the day:
Love is the distinctive feature of true Christians.
Song for the day:
Let there be love shared among us, let there be love in our hearts…….
Bible reading for the day:
Psalm 31-33; Acts 21:15-40
