CONCERN for others

 John 13:34-35

King James Version

34 A new commandment I give unto you, 

That ye love one another; as I have loved you, 

that ye also love one another.

35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, 

if ye have love one to another.

The LORD JESUS was clear.

We are to love one another.

"But I'm not a disciple", you'd say.

So, you'd rather go about your way, not caring.

Listen to what JESUS says:

John 8:24

King James Version

24 I said therefore unto you, 

that ye shall die in your sins: 

for if ye believe not that I am he, 

ye shall die in your sins.

If that doesn't alarm you, I don't know what will.

For my part, I just knew I didn't want to sin anymore.

I made that declaration to self, and started to make changes.

Five months after, on September 2019, GOD made me born again.

He knew I was serious about getting to His truth.

GOD showed us how to love:

Isaiah 41:17

King James Version

17 When the poor and needy seek water, 

and there is none, 

and their tongue faileth for thirst, 

I the Lord will hear them, 

I the God of Israel will not forsake them.

John 3:16-17

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world 

to condemn the world; 

but that the world through him might be saved.

John 6:39-40

King James Version

39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, 

that of all which he hath given me 

I should lose nothing, 

but should raise it up again at the last day.

40 And this is the will of him that sent me, 

that every one which seeth the Son, 

and believeth on him, 

may have everlasting life: 

and I will raise him up at the last day.

JESUS showed us how to love, too:

Mark 10:45

King James Version

45 For even the Son of man came 

not to be ministered unto, 

but to minister, 

and to give his life a ransom for many.

2 Corinthians 8:9

King James Version

9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, 

that, though he was rich, 

yet for your sakes he became poor, 

that ye through his poverty might be rich.

1 Peter 3:18

King James Version

18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, 

the just for the unjust, 

that he might bring us to God, 

being put to death in the flesh, 

but quickened by the Spirit:

Having been shown by GOD, and by His Son, JESUS, how to love, in turn, here's how we can love others:

Psalm 82:3

King James Version

3 Defend the poor and fatherless: 

do justice to the afflicted and needy.

Psalm 82:4

King James Version

4 Deliver the poor and needy: 

rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

Proverbs 3:27-28

King James Version

27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, 

when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

28 Say not unto thy neighbour, 

Go, and come again, 

and to morrow I will give; 

when thou hast it by thee.

Proverbs 14:21

King James Version

21 He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth: 

but he that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he.

Proverbs 29:7

King James Version

7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: 

but the wicked regardeth not to know it.

Proverbs 31:8

King James Version

8 Open thy mouth for the dumb 

in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.

Proverbs 31:9

King James Version

9 Open thy mouth, 

judge righteously, 

and plead the cause of the poor and needy.

Isaiah 1:17

King James Version

17 Learn to do well; 

seek judgment, 

relieve the oppressed, 

judge the fatherless, 

plead for the widow.

Isaiah 58:10-12

King James Version

10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, 

and satisfy the afflicted soul; 

then shall thy light rise in obscurity, 

and thy darkness be as the noon day:

11 And the Lord shall guide thee continually, 

and satisfy thy soul in drought, 

and make fat thy bones: 

and thou shalt be like a watered garden, 

and like a spring of water, 

whose waters fail not.

12 And they that shall be of thee 

shall build the old waste places: 

thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; 

and thou shalt be called, 

The repairer of the breach, 

The restorer of paths to dwell in.

Romans 15:1

King James Version

15 We then that are strong 

ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, 

and not to please ourselves.

Romans 15:5

King James Version

5 Now the God of patience and consolation 

grant you to be likeminded one toward another 

according to Christ Jesus:

I thank the HOLY SPIRIT, for guiding me to write this article.
