FAITH LOVE HOPE- words created with letter tiles

Seeing is loving

 

1 John 4, English Standard Version( ESV)

“Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

if we love one another, God abides in us and his  love is perfected in us.

If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; 

for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen 

cannot love God whom he has not seen. 

And this commandment we have from him:

whoever loves God must also love his brother.”

Love in words and action-weekend words

 

1 John chapter 3 –Good News Translation (GNT)

(a letter of John)

16 This is how we know what love is: Christ gave his life for us.

We too, then, ought to give our lives for others! 

17 If we are rich and see others in need, yet close our hearts against them, how can we claim that we love God? 

18 My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action.

John chapter 3 Good News Translation (GNT)

(the gospel of John)

16 For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life. 

For God did not send his Son into the world to be its judge, but to be its savior.

James 1:27, NIV 

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:

to look after orphans and widows in their distress and

to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

Santiago 1:27, La Biblia de las Américas (LBLA)

 La religión pura y sin mácula delante de nuestro Dios y Padre es ésta:

visitar a los huérfanos y a las viudas en sus aflicciones,

y guardarse sin mancha del mundo.

John 13 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

12 When Jesus finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and went back to the table. He asked, “Do you understand what I did for you?

13 You call me ‘Teacher.’ And you call me ‘Lord.’ And this is right, because that is what I am.

14 I am your Lord and Teacher. But I washed your feet. So you also should wash each other’s feet.

I did this as an example for you. So you should serve each other just as I served you.

34 “I give you a new command: Love each other.

You must love each other just as I loved you.

35 All people will know that you are my followers if you love each other.”

In 16th century England, William Shakespeare wrote plays and poetry that are still considered some of the greatest literature in the English language.

His writings explored human emotions  from love to hate, and every feeling between. Some were tragedies, some were comedies, and they  touch our lives now as much as they did for  people 400 years ago.

Much of Shakespeare’s personal life, including his medical history, remains unknown. Even the dates of his birth and death are in question; as close as we know he was born in 1564 and died at age 52 years. The cause is not known.

He and his wife Anne Hathaway married young and had 3 children- a girl, followed by twins, boy and girl. Their son died at age 11, cause unknown.

The older daughter Susanna married a physician Dr. John Hall.

“no fear in love”- Weekend Words

from 1 John 4:16-21, English Standard Version  Bible

So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.

By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world.

 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

We love because he first loved us.

If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot  loveGod whom he has not seen.

And his commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.

Love is- Weekend Words from 1 Corinthians WYC

 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, Wycliffe Bible

Charity is patient, it is benign; charity envieth not, it doeth not wickedly, it is not blown [it is not in-blown with pride],

it is not covetous [of worships], it seeketh not those things that be his own [it seeketh not those things that be her own], it is not stirred to wrath, it thinketh not evil,

it joyeth not on wickedness, but it joyeth together to truth; [it joyeth not in wickedness, forsooth it joyeth together with truth;]

it suffereth all things, it believeth all things, it hopeth all things, it sustaineth all things.

“More than two centuries before the King James Version came into existence, Oxford professor and theologian John Wycliffe undertook the first-ever English translation of Scripture. The hand-printed “Early Version” of the Wycliffe Bible, which first appeared in 1382, offered a literal translation of the Latin Vulgate. It was the first time the common people had access to Scripture in their language in more than 1,300 years.

By 1395, Wycliffe’s friend John Purvey had amended the often-unwieldy translation into a “Later Version,” which was easier to read but kept much of the poetry of the Early Version. This version, known today as the Wycliffe Bible, was widely distributed throughout England – all more than half a century before Gutenberg invented his printing press.” from BibleStudyTools.com
