      "Love one another."— (John 13:34):
      "Do not owe anything to anyone except to love one another."(Rom.13:8)
      “Above All Things, Have Intense Love” WHY? 
      ???
      First, “because love is from God.” ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) Jehovah, the Source of this endearing quality, loved us first. The apostle John says: “By this the love of God was made manifest in our case, because God sent forth his only-begotten Son into the world that we might gain life through him.” ( Hello guest!

      God’s Son was “sent forth” by becoming a human, carrying out his ministry, and dying on a torture stake—all so “that we might gain life.” How should we respond to this supreme expression of God’s love? John says: “If this is how God loved us, then we are ourselves under obligation to love one another.” ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. )

      Note that John writes, “If this is how God loved us”—not just you but us. The point is clear: If God loves our fellow worshipers, then we ought to love them too.

      Second, it is especially vital that we love one another more now in order to extend help to our brothers in need because “the end of all things has drawn close.” ( Hello guest!

Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) World conditions, natural disasters, and opposition bring hardships upon us. Under trying circumstances, we need to draw ever closer to one another. Intense love will bind us together and motivate us to “care for oneanother.”— Hello guest!

      Third, we need to love one another because we do not want to “allow place for the Devil” to take advantage of us. ( Hello guest!

Will a thoughtless remark or an unkind act cause us to withdraw from the congregation? ( Hello guest!

Such love helps us to maintain peace and unitedly to serve God “shoulder to shoulder.”— Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. .
