Leviticus 19:18 ESV
You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.

God Has Set the Example

1 John 4:11 ESV
Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

We are Known by Our Love

It is the Foundation of Our Fellowship

Proverbs 10:12 ESV
Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.
Proverbs 17:9 ESV
Whoever covers an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates close friends.

Love Promotes Sacrificial Service

1 Thessalonians 2:8 ESV
So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.
Proverbs 17:17 ESV
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

How Shall We Express Love For One Another

By Caring for the Sick

Matthew 25:36 ESV
I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’
Job 2:11 ESV
Now when Job’s three friends heard of all this evil that had come upon him, they came each from his own place, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite. They made an appointment together to come to show him sympathy and comfort him.

In Our Greetings

2 Corinthians 13:12 ESV
Greet one another with a holy kiss.

In Meeting Material Needs

Matthew 25:35 ESV
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
1 John 3:17 ESV
But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?
