Love in deed and in truth

   
Love in deed and in truth  
   
3 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.  
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.  
3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. Deed, Word : Love
4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.  
5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. Denied Himself, Took up His Cross
6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. Redeemed, Cleansed
7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.  
8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. To take away our sins,

Denied Himself, Took up His cross

9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. Abiding Jesus redeems our sins
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. The salt and the light are shown in the world through their deeds
11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.  
12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous. Of the evil one – slew,

Evil works – slew

Importance of true witness

13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.  
14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.  
15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.  
16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.  
17 But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?  
18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. In truth and in the Spirit
19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. Love in word and deed – of the truth
20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Ask forgiveness, repent –

Redeeming Grace

21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.  
22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. Ask the kingdom of God and His righteousness
23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. As He denied Himself and took up His cross, so we are
24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us. Love in deed and in truth

Keep, Abide

 

 

Keep, Abide

 

 

 

 

 

3 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

His Law

 

 

3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

Mercy, Truth

 

 

21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:

Wisdom, Discretion

 

 

 

 

15 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

 

2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

 

3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

 

4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

 

5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

 

6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

 

7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

 

8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

 

9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

 

10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

 

Ask, Seek, Knock

   
Ask, Seek, Knock  
   
   
2 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;  
2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;  
3 Yea,if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; Ask
4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Seek
5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. Knock
   
6 For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.  
7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walkuprightly. Given
8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints. Find
9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path. Opened
   
   
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:  
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.  
   
   
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. His name
22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?  
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  
24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.  
   
   
44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. His name
45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: His name
46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.  

Godly Desire

 

 

Godly Desire

 

 

 

 

 

12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.

 

 

 

 

 

7 There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.

 

8 The ransom of a man’s life are his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke.

 

9 The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.

 

10 Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.

 

11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7 All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursueth them with words, yet they are wanting to him.

 

8 He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.

 

9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.

 

10 Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.

 

11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.

 

 

 

 

 

31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.

 

32 For the froward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous.

 

 

 

30 A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.

 

 

 

17 Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long.

 

18 For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.

 

 

 

3 A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool’s wrath is heavier than them both.

 

4 Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?

 

Hope

   
Hope  
   
12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.  
20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.  
21 There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.  
   
   
42 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.  
2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?  
3 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?  
4 When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.  
5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.  
6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.  
7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.  
8 Yet the Lord will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.  
9 I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?  
10 As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?  
11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

 

23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

 

 

 

10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

 

11 And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:

47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

 

48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

 

49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

 

50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

 

20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;

 

21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.

 

22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

 

23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

 

 

 

 

 

12 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.

 

13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.

 

14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

 

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

 

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

 

17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
