Our Love for the Things of God

This is a subsidiary post of Love.

Subsidiary post:  Loving His Name

I’ve shown in bold the things of God we should be loving.  For if we love God, we love the things that are His – the things that are of Him.

2 Thessalonians 2:10  –  “the love of the truth

2 Timothy 4:8  –  “to all who have loved His appearing

Hebrews 1:9  –  “you have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness”  –  Note that loving righteousness entails hating lawlessness.  Given that they are opposites, we cannot love one without hating the other.

Hebrews 6:10  –  “the love which you have shown toward His name

1 Peter 1:22  –  “you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren

1 John 5:1  –  “whoever loves the Father loves the child born of Him.”

*****

Psalm 45:7  –  (quoted in Hebrews 1:9 above) “you have loved righteousness and hated wickedness”

Psalm 119:97  –  “O how I love Your law

Psalm 119:165  –  “Those who love Your law

Zechariah 8:19  –  “so love truth and peace
