'FOLLOW CHARITY'

"My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth" - 1 John 3:18
.
Instead of wasting your life on the pursuit of youthful lust (sexual sins and perversion, illegal means of making money, the pursuit of ungodly relationship, the quest for power and fame); it's best you pursue love.
.
Strive to walk in love regardless of age, status, tribe, religion, race or conditions. 
.
Who should I love first? Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself (Luke 10:27).
.
Don't ever make the mistake of loving your neighbor first without loving God foremost. Men (women) will break your heart but God would not only preserve your heart but your life. 
.
How can I love the God I do not see? Keep His word that you know or have heard (1 John 2:4) - not the words of men, religious tenets or worldly philosophies. 
.
To love God, believe on the name of His son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandments (1 John 3:23).
.
Are you pursuing God's love? To love Him wholeheartedly, soulfully (that is, passionately, deeply), physically and with all your interest. 
.
Nobody was born to love God. We were conceived in the flesh (sin) and to love it. But when you make the choice to love God, there’s a change in your life and personality that makes you manifest God's personality. 
.
David loved God wholeheartedly (Ps. 84:2b). He loved Him with all his soul (Ps. 42:1-2; 63:8a). With all his strength, He loved the Lord (2 Sam. 6:14) and with all his mind, he loved the Lord.
.
What and who is your love centered on (the world, in the intangible things of life or in person)?
.
Please pray with Romans 5:5b
