The lesson on March 28, 2010 was the eighth lesson in the series “God Has Not Given Us the Spirit of Fear”.  The scripture reading was in John 15:9-14 KJV “9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. 11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.”  What great love God has for us.  As the song “Looking for Love (in all the wrong places)” demonstrates from the movie “Urban Cowboy”, the world looks for love but it has confused love with lust.  This lesson looks at the love that God has for us.  The word of God is the power of God as we learned in Psalms 19:7-10 KJV. Examples were given from scripture wanting the power of God but they did not get it.  On the cover of the March 8th edition of People Magazine, Carrie Underwood was quoted as saying “He Makes Me Feel So Special” speaking of her fiance Mike Fisher.  Back in 2006, perhaps Sandra Bullock felt the same way about her new husband Jesse James. In 2010 it feel apart due to infidelity.  Dare we mention Tiger Woods...  Why doesn’t the worlds recipie for love doesn’t work?  It’s not God’s definition of love.  In 1 John 4:6-21LV it says “6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. 7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 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. 17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 19 We love him, because he first loved us. 20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.” The lesson ended with a video from the “God of Wonders” DVD from Eternal Productions chapter 18 entitled “God of Love”.
