The Bible is full of verses that remind us of God’s perfect love for all of us. The scriptures also tell us the importance of loving each other. You can use the Bible to learn how to love your spouse, children, friends, and even your neighbor. Here are just 30 of the approximately 730 verses about love in the Bible!</p> <p>&#160;</p> <p><strong>Leviticus 19:18 <br /></strong>Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.</p> <p><strong>Deuteronomy 6:4-5 <br /></strong>Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.</p> <p><strong>Deuteronomy 7:9 <br /></strong>Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands.</p> <p><strong>1 Chronicles 16:34</strong> <br />Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.</p> <p><strong>Psalm 13:5</strong> <br />But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.</p> <p><strong>Psalm 23:5-6&#160; <br /></strong>You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.</p> <p><strong>Psalm 31:16 <br /></strong>Make your face shine on your servant;&#160; save me in your steadfast love!</p> <p><strong>Psalm 33:5</strong> <br />The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.</p> <p><strong>Psalm 63:3 <br /></strong>Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.</p> <p><strong>Proverbs 10:12</strong> <br />Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.</p> <p><strong>Solomon 8:6-7&#160; <br /></strong>Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised.</p> <p><strong>Isaiah 54:10 <br /></strong>Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,&quot; says the LORD, who has compassion on you.</p> <p><strong>Lamentations 3:22 <br /></strong>Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.</p> <p><strong>Micah 6:8</strong> <br />He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.</p> <p><strong>Matthew 5:43-48&#160; <br /></strong>“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,&#160; so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.&#160; For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?&#160; You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.</p> <p><strong>Matthew 6:24-25</strong>&#160; <br />”No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.&#160; “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?</p> <p><strong>Mark 12:28-30</strong>&#160;&#160; <br />And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’</p> <p><strong>John 3:16&#160; <br /></strong>“For God so loved the world,that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.</p> <p><strong>John 14:21-24</strong>&#160; <br />Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”&#160; Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, “Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?” Jesus answered him,&#160; “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me.</p> <p><strong>John 15:9-17</strong> <br />As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.&#160; If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another.</p> <p><strong>Romans 5:8</strong> <br />but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.</p> <p><strong>Romans 8:37-39</strong>&#160; <br />No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.</p> <p><strong>Romans 13:8&#160; <br /></strong>Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.</p> <p><strong>Galatians 2:20 <br /></strong>I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.</p> <p><strong>Galatians 5:13</strong>&#160; <br />For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.</p> <p><strong>Ephesians 4:2 <br /></strong>with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,</p> <p><strong>Philippians 2:2</strong>&#160; <br />complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.</p> <p><strong>1 Peter 1:22&#160; <br /></strong>Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart,</p> <p><strong>1 John 3:1&#160; <br /></strong>See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.</p> <p><strong>1 John 4:7</strong>&#160; <br />Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.</p> http://renewedstrength.org/rs/post/30-Verses-about-Love admin@renewedstrength.org http://renewedstrength.org/rs/post/30-Verses-about-Love#comment http://renewedstrength.org/rs/post.aspx?id=ce8cd2ef-267b-4ea5-b8f3-a1ae6cb12b23 Sat, 16 Feb 2013 08:51:21 -0500 Verses RS_Admin http://renewedstrength.org/rs/pingback.axd http://renewedstrength.org/rs/post.aspx?id=ce8cd2ef-267b-4ea5-b8f3-a1ae6cb12b23 8 http://renewedstrength.org/rs/trackback.axd?id=ce8cd2ef-267b-4ea5-b8f3-a1ae6cb12b23 http://renewedstrength.org/rs/post/30-Verses-about-Love#comment http://renewedstrength.org/rs/syndication.axd?post=ce8cd2ef-267b-4ea5-b8f3-a1ae6cb12b23 20 Verses about Strength <p><strong>Exodus 15:2</strong><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The LORD is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Joshua 1:9<br /></strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>2 Chronicles 15:7<br /></strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Nehemiah 8:10<br /></strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Nehemiah said, "Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared.

Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.&nbsp; That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.</p> <p><br />&nbsp; <br /><strong>Ephesians 3:16<br /></strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being,<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><br /><strong>Ephesians 6:10</strong><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.</p> <p><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /><strong>Philippians 4:13</strong><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I can do everything through him who gives me strength.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>1 Peter 5:10</strong><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.</p> http://renewedstrength.org/rs/post/20-Verses-about-Strength admin@renewedstrength.org http://renewedstrength.org/rs/post/20-Verses-about-Strength#comment http://renewedstrength.org/rs/post.aspx?id=942c15d4-9d65-4ecd-aaad-01f3edf462a3 Mon, 17 Dec 2012 08:00:00 -0500 Verses RS_Admin http://renewedstrength.org/rs/pingback.axd http://renewedstrength.org/rs/post.aspx?id=942c15d4-9d65-4ecd-aaad-01f3edf462a3 0 http://renewedstrength.org/rs/trackback.axd?id=942c15d4-9d65-4ecd-aaad-01f3edf462a3 http://renewedstrength.org/rs/post/20-Verses-about-Strength#comment http://renewedstrength.org/rs/syndication.axd?post=942c15d4-9d65-4ecd-aaad-01f3edf462a3 God Is Still On The Throne <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="text-decoration: underline; font-size: large;"><strong>Nine Inspiring Verses From Psalms</strong></span></p> <p><a href="http://glasshousetheology.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Anchor.png"><img class="alignleft size-full wp-image-990" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title="God Is Still On The Throne" src="http://glasshousetheology.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Anchor.png" alt="God Is Still On The Throne" width="300" height="220" /></a></p> <p>Our lives can be filled with uncertainty. And uncertainty can rob us of peace and joy, especially when we have been wronged. In fact, holding onto peace and security in our lives can be hard, unless we have an anchor. But an anchor is only as good as the chain that holds it fast to us. Fortunately, God has given us both a solid anchor and a chain. We hold to Jesus as our anchor and the promises in His Word are the chain that links us. It is hard to remember when we are wronged that God is on the throne. So many times it does not feel like there is much purpose, order, and logic to all the happenings in our lives. Getting fired from a job, divorce, theft, betrayal - all these can cloud our mind with doubt and frustration. But the Scripture constantly reminds us that God is on the throne, in control, and active in our lives. And although the ancient reader may <a title="Heaven: What We Thought Then, Where Are We Going" href="http://glasshousetheology.com/heaven-what-we-thought-then-where-are-we-going/">not have realized</a> how big creation is, the Bible declares that "everything in heaven and earth is" God's. We can be sure that God is in control and He has a Plan and Purpose for your life. So follow along and claim these Scriptures from Psalms that God is in control and works on our behalf for justice to prevail:</p> <h2>Our Just God:</h2> <p><span style="color: #cb4721;">For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; the upright will see his face.</span> <em><strong>Psalm 11:7</strong></em> <span style="color: #cb4721;">The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.</span> <em><strong>Psalm 33:5</strong></em> <span style="color: #cb4721;">Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your justice like the great deep. You, LORD, preserve both people and animals.</span> <em><strong>Psalm 36:6</strong></em> <span style="color: #cb4721;">Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.</span> <em><strong>Psalm 45:6</strong></em> <span style="color: #cb4721;">And the heavens proclaim his righteousness, for he is a God of justice.</span> <em><strong>Psalm 50:6</strong></em> <span style="color: #cb4721;">Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.</span> <em><strong>Psalm 89:14</strong></em> <span style="color: #cb4721;">Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.</span> <em><strong>Psalm 97:2</strong></em> <span style="color: #cb4721;">The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.</span> <em><strong>Psalm 103:6</strong></em> <span style="color: #cb4721;">I know that the LORD secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy.</span> <em><strong>Psalm 140:12</strong></em></p> <h2>Final Thoughts:</h2> <p>Psalms 89 tells us that every action of God is motivated by love and faithfulness. He is not motivated by hatred or malice. He is not stricken with greed or selfish ambition. His works are geared toward your good. So if you are wronged, know that God is working on your behalf. God will be working for your betterment and <a title="[Infographic] Tithing In The Old Testament" href="http://glasshousetheology.com/infographic-tithing-in-the-old-testament/">the enrichment of others</a>. Since justice, peace, and righteousness motivate God, His actions will lead you to greater peace, joy, and contentment. So being able to be patient and willing to do as He prompts is paramount. And as you learn His Ways, you will be more able to discern His Voice. So grow your heart to love the needy, oppressed, down cast, and struggling. Learn to love as He loves. As you go through hard times, remember your experience well so that you can comfort those when you reach a more stable place. If God can build character and compassion in you, your wrongs and betrayal will produce a light for others to find peace. And know that just as the seasons come and go, your hard time will pass as well. God brings hard times into our lives to refine us. The question is, will the hard times produce good fruit in us? <em>[If you are a victim of sexual or physical abuse do not allow this to continue.
