Love as Our Father Loves

Are you longing to live in love? Do you want to have more love in your life? Then try to love as our Father loves.

Gospel, Luke 6:36-38 

36 'Be compassionate just as your Father is compassionate.

37 Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven.

38 Give, and there will be gifts for you: a full measure, pressed down, shaken together, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap; because the standard you use will be the standard used for you.'

Love as our Father loves

Do you want to learn how to love? Really love?

Love like our Father.

36 'Be compassionate just as your Father is compassionate.

How does our Father love?

Totally, unconditionally.

How do we know that God’s love is total?

“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 AMP

God gave everything He has, everything He loves and holds dear – Jesus Christ His one and only Son.

Who among you parents can give your child to die so that others may live?

I’m just saying.

How do we know God’s love is unconditional?

“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. 

And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. 

He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. 

And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him. 

John 3:16‭-‬18 MSG

God’s love does not discriminate. He loves everyone.

Saint and sinners alike.

so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. 

God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. 

He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted;

I like how The Message Bible says it: 

God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was.

God’s love redeems, Jesus does not condemn.

Loving as the Father Loves

As we are children of a Loving God and Father, we are called to love like Him.

Total and unconditional.

36 'Be compassionate just as your Father is compassionate.37 Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven.38 Give, and there will be gifts for you.

If you think about it, loving as The Father loves us is totally win-win for us.

  • We don’t judge others, we will not be judged.
  • We do not condemn others, we will not be condemned
  • We forgive others, we will be forgiven
  • We give to others, gifts will be given to us.

How amazing is that?

You never lose when you live in love.

The Message says it beautifully.

“Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults—unless, of course, you want the same treatment. 

Don’t condemn those who are down; that hardness can boomerang. 

Be easy on people; you’ll find life a lot easier. 

Give away your life; you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity.” Luke 6:37‭-‬38 MSG

Be easy on people, you’ll find life a lot easier.

Remember, what goes around, comes around.

Give love, not just on Christmas day, and love will be given back to you. 

a full measure, pressed down, shaken together, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap; because the standard you use will be the standard used for you.

Luke 6:38

Now your turn

Do you want to have more love in your life?

Love as our Father loves.

Live in His love so that as you experience more of His love, you can love others the way He loves.

Totally, unconditionally. 

Give love and love will be given you.

Expect love, love, and more love.

God told them, “I’ve never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love! Jeremiah 31:3 MSG

Love totally wins.
