Last year was my 77th year (I was 78 this past March 25th)and began to be more aware we cannot love someone we don’t know.

The first and great commandment is: “To love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and soul.”

The second like unto it is: “To love your neighbor as yourself.”

In May I have plans to attend my 60 High School reunion. I ordered a wonderful nice Bible book mark titled: “49 Ways to Love God and Others”

Quoted just under that title: “If ye love Me keep My commandments.” (John 14:15)

COMMANDS OF CHRIST
rEPENT,BEBORN AGAIN, FOLLOW ME, REJOICE, LET YOUR LIGHT SO SHINE, HONOR GOD’S LAW, BE RECONCILED, DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, KEEP YOUR WORD, GO THE SECOND MILE, LOVE YOUR ENEMIES, BE PERFECT, (and that is just the first 12)

Now I ask myself, and each of us:

“Can I love God without knowing Him?”

“Can I love my neighbor without knowing him?”

“Can I keep the Lord’s commandments without knowing them?”

Age does not matter. If you love the LORD, then growth, learning, and change of life through faith in HIM can happen any moment.

GOD draws and brings increase to those whose hearts truly seek HIM!!

If anyone truly loves GOD, then, it’s easy to love humans, because they are a part of HIS creation.

I truly love everyone, because JESUS loves me. It’s very possible. Believe and receive.

Nothing is impossible for GOD.
No ear has heard and no eye has seen what GOD has intended for those who love HIM!! AMEN!!

Praise JESUS,
