Learning to Love. Is the Bible Way the Best?

Love is a profoundly tender, passionate affection, one has for another person, says Dictionary.com. Yet, friends and coworkers might be saying they love their money, possessions or power. The world typically is selfish and it’s lusts are often mistaken for love. Such is not true biblical love.

Since God is love and His word is truth, it’s reasonable to say the Bible is a lesson on how to love. That’s something the world does not consistently understand. Loving God, God’s way is the best life of all. It’s so important to have faith in God’s instructions on how to live right and practice wholesomeness.

The universal law is to love God first and our neighbor second (Exodus 20 and Matthew 22:36-40).

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law? And he said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second like unto it is this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments the whole law hangeth, and the prophets.” (ASV)

The Christian believes the Bible is the words of God. The word of God given to apostles and prophets to produces a divinely inspired Scriptures, the Bible. (2 Peter 1:20-21).

“Every scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness. That the man of God may be complete, furnished completely unto every good work” – 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (ASV) Every thing we need for life and godly living is in the Bible (2 Peter 1:3).

The Christian’s faith comes from the system of faith. Father Gods’ system of faith is the law of Christ as contained in prophecy of the Old Testament and realized in the New Testament. The Bible’s old law has been nailed to the cross (Colossians 2:14). Serving as something of a tutor or school-master bringing us to Christ. The law is now abolished (Ephesians 2:15). We are not bound to keep the law of Moses, except where universal moral laws are.

Faith to believe God. Hope for the future eternal homeland. Love from a purified spirit. All these are acquired from Bible study. Learning to love, God’s way, is a choice.
