loving life


The commandment of love – according to Luke 10

A teacher of the law wanted to put Jesus to the test. “Master,” he asked, “what must I do to have eternal life?” Jesus replied, “What does the law say? What do you read there? “He answered, “‘You shall LOVE the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your devotion, with all your strength, and with all your mind!’ And, ‘You shall love your fellow man as yourself!'” – “You have answered correctly,” Jesus said. “Do this and you will live.”

But more than anything else, pay attention to your heart, for it determines how you lead your life. - Proverbs 4:23

I assure you: Those who believe have eternal life. I am the bread of life. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. - John 6:47-51

The Father loves me because I give my life. I give it away in order to receive it again. – John 10:17

It is no longer I who live, no, Christ lives in me. And as long as I still have this earthly life, I live by faith in the Son of God, who showed me his love and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20

For God showed his love to the world by giving his only Son for it, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life and not perish. – John 3:16

LOVE in its fullness – according to Ephesians 3:17-19

‘It is my prayer,` that Christ may dwell in your hearts because of faith and that your lives may be rooted in love and established on the foundation of love. This will enable you, together with all others who belong to God’s holy people, to grasp the love of Christ in all its dimensions – in its breadth, in its length, in its height and in its depth. Yes, ‘I pray’` that you may understand his love, which yet reaches far beyond all understanding, and that in this way you may be filled more and more with all the fullness of life that is to be found with God.

For in Christ he chose us before the creation of the world, so that we might live a sanctified and blameless life, a life in his presence and filled with his love. - Ephesians 1:4
