of Life Lessons
is a source of power, though it, of itself, has no power. Love is the reciprocal
action of give and take. Love creates a vacuum that necessitates reaction.
Remember! Nature abhors a vacuum, but Nature does not repel Love. Nature merely
says that if we Love, we must be loved. The Creator naturally loves His
creation. This love keeps the Creation satisfied in all its many facets of life.
said, "If you love me, keep my commandments." Now we see that the
requirement for loving Jesus is the keeping of His commandments. All His words
and sayings are His commandments. As we grow in Love, we automatically shall
keep every one of them.
LAW OF LOVE
is part of the Law--the Law that runs the Universe. Love is a divine attribute
having its origin in the act of creation. The creation must automatically
manifest substance it since the creation is nothing more than the materialized
substance of the Creator. Therefore, Truth says divine Love always is, always
has, and always will supply our every need.
is functional in the Law. It is the generator by which the Law works--as we have
said--the source of power.
is also the River of Life that flows from the throne of God. Without Love, we
cannot see God. We have to reach to God through the act of Love to see God, the
Creator, as the Creator functions through Love action.
31:23 "Love the Lord, all you His saints! The Lord preserves the faithful,
but abundantly requites him who acts haughtily." Because, it is the Lord
Who preserves the faithful.
John 15:17 "Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life
for his friends." In loving one another, we love the Creator, for the
Creator is present in each and every one of us.
necessitates giving and sharing without hope of reward as we see in John 3:16,
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whosoever
believed in him should not perish, but have eternal life."
John 4:19 "We love, because He first loved us." We see here that our
Love is the result of the Creator’s Love, and the manifestation of all our
Love is nothing more that the effect of God loving all His creation.
8:35 "Who shall separate us from the Love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or
distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?"
Paul desired to know who was able to separate us from the Love of God. The only
answer to that question is we, ourselves. This is because we are more than
conquerors through Him that loved us, and neither death, nor Life, nor angels,
nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor
anything else in all Creation will be able to separate us from the Love of God
in Jesus Christ, our Lord.
13:10 "Love does no wrong to a neighbor, therefore, Love is the fulfilling
of the Law." The night is far gone; the day is at hand. Let us then cast
off the works of darkness and put on the armor of Light, and we will demonstrate
I John 4:18 "There is no fear in Love, but perfect Love casts out fear." For fear has to do with punishment, and he who fears is not perfected in Love.
5:22 "But the fruit of the Spirit is Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
1:5 "He destined us in love to be His sons through Jesus Christ, according
to the purpose of His Will."
Corinthians 13:13 "So faith, hope, love abide, these three, but the
greatest of these is Love."
Corinthians 13:1 " If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have
not Love, I am a noisy gong, or a clanging cymbal."
Corinthians 8:3 "But if one loves God, one is known by Him." Here,
again, that Love of God; he has knowledge of God.
of the Creation gives us knowledge of the Creation. Love of man gives us
knowledge of man. It is spiritually correct to say that we cannot know anything
without loving it.
is a controlling factor. It restrains in many instances from doing damage to the
creation of God, and His Creation as seen in II Corinthians 5:14, "For the
love of Christ controls us, because we are convinced that one has died for all;
therefore all have died."
Love is a thermostat, and keeps our vehicle of expression well under control.
us pray for Love. Let us seek Love. And, when we receive it, let us exercise it.
Let us hold fast to it. For it is a precious stone--a valuable part of our
St. John 15:5, Jesus said, "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved
you; abide in my love." So Jesus stated that He loved mankind in the same
respect and regard, and in the same manner as the Creator loved it. This is the
secret of true loving. It is not something that is simply there to be used, but
it is something we, ourselves, create through proper use of Universal Mind.
Creator creates the creation; in turn, the Creation continually recreates the
Creator. This is the Father/Mother God having divine activity of give and take
within its own androgynous Being. This is Love expressed cosmically. In reality,
this is what man and woman experience sexually on the individual level. This,
too, is an expression of the Divine Will of the Father.
it is expressed physically, mentally, spiritually, or materially, it is never
sinful, but always virtuous.
Our prayer for you is that you allow the Love of God to be shed abroad in your heart in perfect peace.
