A Life In Love

Romans 14:19 English Standard Version (ESV)
19 So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.

Romans 14:19 New Living Translation (NLT)
19 So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up.

Romans 14:19 New International Version (NIV)
19 Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.

Romans 14:19-21 The Message (MSG)
19-21 So let’s agree to use all our energy in getting along with each other. Help others with encouraging words; don’t drag them down by finding fault. You’re certainly not going to permit an argument over what is served or not served at supper to wreck God’s work among you, are you? I said it before and I’ll say it again: All food is good, but it can turn bad if you use it badly, if you use it to trip others up and send them sprawling. When you sit down to a meal, your primary concern should not be to feed your own face but to share the life of Jesus. So be sensitive and courteous to the others who are eating. Don’t eat or say or do things that might interfere with the free exchange of love.

So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding. So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up. Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.

Don’t eat or say or do things that might interfere with the free exchange of love.The tongue is one of the most dangerous weapons we use. We need to think in love before we speak in hate and say the most hurtful hateful things. We need to think and speak out of love sharing love amongst each one.

Romans 12:18 English Standard Version (ESV)
18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.

Romans 12:18-19 The Message (MSG)
17-19 Don’t hit back; discover beauty in everyone. If you’ve got it in you, get along with everybody. Don’t insist on getting even; that’s not for you to do. “I’ll do the judging,” says God. “I’ll take care of it.” it depends on you to live at peace with everyone.Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.

Romans 12:18-19
If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take vengeance or retaliate, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to requite; I will repay,” says the Lord.
Do all that you can to live in peace with all.

Romans 6:23 English Standard Version (ESV)
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 6:23 The Message (MSG)
22-23 But now that you’ve found you don’t have to listen to sin telling you what to do, and have discovered the delight of listening to God telling you, what a surprise! A whole, healed, put-together life right now, with more and more of life on the way! Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God’s gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our Master.

You don’t have anything in life if you’re without the love of Christ. He is love, he gives love, he teaches love and from all of it we are given eternal life. If we don’t have Christ then we are nothing and we have nothing. We have not accepted him or the gifts he offers us. We need love to give love and Christ to gain eternal life and his gifts he gives.

1 Corinthians 13
[ Love Is the Greatest ] If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:13
Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13:13 The Message (MSG)
13 But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

When we give love which has to be given we also receive love and earn God’s gift by giving God’s gift. Without it if we give anything but love than we shall then receive disrespect and dishonor and hateful words or acts and anything of evil in return for that is what we have given. For God teaches us in Luke to do unto others as you want them to do unto you. So if you feed and give out evil then evil is what you will be given. Instead you need to be grounded in love and giving love then you receive love back and abundance in blessings and offering of goods.
We need to teach others the lessons of Christ so that people are more compassionate in their speaking and actions. Only then will God be pleased and a better life given and his forgiveness for all our evil and sin. We must live in Godly faith.
