And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His Commandments, AND DO THOSE THINGS THAT ARE PLEASING IN HIS SIGHT. And this is His Commandment, That we should BELIEVE ON the Name of his Son JESUS CHRIST, AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER, as He gave us commandment. And he that keepeth His Commandments dwelleth in Him, and He in him. And hereby we know that He abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us. 1 John 3:22-24. The following is a quote from the writer of a book about "The 5 Languages Of Love," The name of the author is Mr. Gary Chapman. All credit to him. Quote, "According to Chapman, there are five ways we express and experience love (he calls them "Love Languages"): Gift Giving, Quality Time, Physical Touch, Acts of Service (Devotion), and Words of Affirmation". End quote. The question is then asked, which language do you speak? If us Christians Love Christ, wouldn't it be a really GOoD Thing to Fully, Completely, and Totally Love Christ with all 5 of these "Love Languages"? Here's an illustration. A really good meal has meat, vegetables, fruit, bread, and water, and each one, of itself, is good for you. But to try to live on only one of these items is unbalanced and harmful to you. To eat all 5 brings Health and Vitality. Christ has Loved us with a Love that is so Full and Complete, it covers EVERYTHING. His Love can't be broken down into some of this and part of that. When you Fellowship with Christ in your Prayer Closet and He Wraps His Arms around you, no one cares what it's called and how it works, it goes way beyond what mere words can't express. And that same Love Christ shares with us, He wants us to share it with all seven and a half billion of our closest Friends, Family, and Neighbors. You can't "label" Love, it's just something you DO. The Bible is full of Rules and Regulations, if you want to keep count. Otherwise, just keep 2 "Rules", Love God, and Love your Neighbor, and you will DEFINITELY, Be Blessed.
