HE HAS GIVEN US THIS COMMAND: WHOEVER LOVES GOD
MUST ALSO LOVE HIS BROTHER.
( 1 JOHN 4:21 *NIV )

Dear Friend,
Our Savior Jesus Christ said; 
“A NEW COMMAND I GIVE YOU:
LOVE ONE ANOTHER.  AS I HAVE LOVED YOU, SO YOU
MUST LOVE ONE ANOTHER.”   ( JOHN 13:34 )

So; OFFER HOSPITALITY TO ONE ANOTHER WITHOUT
GRUMBLING.  EACH ONE SHOULD USE WHATEVER GIFT
HE HAS RECEIVED TO SERVE OTHERS, FAITHFULLY
ADMINISTRATING GOD’S GRACE IN ITS VARIOUS FORMS.
(1 PETER 4:9-10 )

     Therefore; IF ANYONE HAS MATERIAL POSSESSIONS AND
SEES HIS BROTHER IN NEED BUT HAS NO PITY ON HIM,
HOW CAN THE LOVE OF GOD BE IN HIM?  DEAR CHILDREN,
LET US NOT LOVE WITH WORDS OR TONGUE BUT WITH
ACTIONS AND IN TRUTH. 
Now just; SUPPOSE A BROTHER
OR SISTER IS WITHOUT CLOTHES AND DAILY FOOD.  IF
ONE OF YOU SAYS TO HIM, “GO, I WISH YOU WELL; KEEP
WARM AND WELL FED,” BUT DOES NOTHING ABOUT HIS
PHYSICAL NEEDS, WHAT GOOD IS IT?
( 1 JOHN 3:17-18 )  &  ( JAMES 2:15-16 )

After all Jesus also said, “I TELL YOU THE TRUTH, WHATEVER
YOU DID FOR ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE BROTHERS
OF MINE, YOU DID FOR ME.”   ( MATTHEW 25:40 )

Therefore Friend; LOVE MUST BE SINCERE.  HATE WHAT IS
EVIL; CLING TO WHAT IS GOOD.  BE DEVOTED TO ONE
ANOTHER IN BROTHERLY LOVE.  HONOR ONE ANOTHER
ABOVE YOURSELVES. 
and God will Bless you for it!   Amen!
 
( ROMANS 12:9-10 )

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
