Or, “The Beloved”

This is a subsidiary post of God’s Love for Us.
It is also a subsidiary post of Other Names for the Disciples of Jesus Christ.
It is also a subsidiary post of The People of God.

Galatians 2:20  –  “…and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”

Ephesians 5: 1, 2  –  “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us…”

1 Thessalonians 1:2-5  –  “…knowing, brethren beloved by God, His choice of you…”

1 Timothy 6:2  –  “Those who have believers as their masters must not be disrespectful to them because they are brethren, but must serve them all the more, because those who partake of the benefit are believers and beloved…”

1 John 4:16  –  “We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us…”  –  Correlate with John 3:16.  It’s not as though God loves us and not them.  Rather, the difference is that we have come to believe that love and they have not – at least not yet.

1 John 4:19  –  “We love, because He first loved us.”

Jude 1:1-2  –  “…to those who are the called, beloved in God the Father, and kept for Jesus Christ…”

*****

Psalm 127:2  –  “…for He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.”
