1 John 4: 7-10
Beloved friends, let us love one another; because love is from God; and everyone who loves has God as his Father and knows God. Those who do not love, do not know God; because God is love. Here is how God showed His love among us; God sent His only Son into the world, so that through Him we might have Life. Here, is what love is: not that we have loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the kapparah (sacrifice) for our sins.
1 Corinthians 13: 8-10; 12-13
Love never ends; but prophesies will pass, tongues will cease, knowledge will pass. For our knowledge is partial, and our prophecy partial; but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass.
For now we see obscurely in a mirror (His image in us), but then it will be face to Face. Now I know partly; then I will know fully, just as God has fully known me.
But for now, three things last – trust, hope, love; and the greatest of these is love. Pursue Love!
The conscience whose only pursuit is to know God; that is – that the purpose of one’s desire to be pure is that the obscurity of vision become clearer and clearer to see the Son; no other engine drives the vehicle of passion to conform to His image. The consciousness of self grows old and dies every minute; while the consciousness of God grows as young as the world was being given birth. Young as He is and ever shall be. Youth as we know it is ever a state of growing older; partial. But youth as God does; perpetual. Only as a “child” do we come to know God. As “adults” we can only know of Him. The more we think we know of Him; the further away we become to Him and begin to decay. To know Him; in experience with relationship with Him; our very DNA is changed from decay to Life. .. full of its greatest potential. .. to beget more Life.
He/She who has ears; let them hear. ..
Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah
