“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” Proverbs:4:7
In this first series of “Get Biblical Understanding” we’re reviewing many of the verses that have to do with love. There is no other biblical topic more important than this one. Therefore it is imperative that we “get understanding” of this tremendous attribute of God.
It should come as no surprise then that loving God is set forth as the “first and great commandment” (Matthew:22:38). Hopefully these sessions addressing love will help us all put the emphasis on God’s love first in our lives as the Scripture commands.
TOPIC: LOVING GOD
Mark:12:28-30 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
1 John:4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Romans:5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans:8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, for Thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
