WHAT MANNER OF LOVE

2019 – TUESDAY 01 OCTOBER

WHAT MANNER OF LOVE

1 John 3:1
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!

WHAT MANNER OF LOVE
The love of God is so much more than a good intention or a nice feeling.
God’s love has a manner about it. He demonstrates His love.
Your manner of love and life – is the revealed way in which you express it.
Don’t say you love me if you can’t show it with your actions.

YOU BESTOW LOVE UPON
To love someone is so much more than accommodating them – when all is well.
Real love is bestowed upon someone – consistently.
You reveal your love for someone by bestowing good things upon them.
For God so loved the world – He bestowed Jesus upon us.
Bestow physical touch.
Bestow words of kindness.
Bestow gifts of appreciation.
Bestow your best on those you love.

SHOW LOVE BY NAMING
The greatest expression of love for others is seen in the names you give them.
What you call others reveals your love – or lack of it – for others.
Notice God called us His children.
You love someone when you call them relational names – of endearment and closeness.
Beloved – is one of God’s favourite names for you.
Don’t just call them functional names.
Call them relational names revealing your love.

PEOPLE LIVE UP TO THE NAMES THEY ARE GIVEN
Watch people respond when you call them by loving names.

SHOW YOUR MANNER OF LOVE – BY GIVING SPECIAL NAMES TO THOSE YOU LOVE
