God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).
…the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God (John 16:2-3; NLT).
“ ‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ ” (Luke 10:27; NLT).
Those who love others
Are on the path to you,
No matter what faith they follow,
For you are love.
But those who say they love you
Whilst judging and condemning others,
Or even killing them,
Couldn’t be more wrong:
Because their actions show
They don’t love you at all.
Please help us to love you
With all our heart, soul,
Mind and strength,
And our neighbour as ourself –
Just as you command.
