Yahweh, Day 266

    Day 266

Yahweh: ... Maintain Love
, #3

Yahweh  is the God of Hosts;
Yahweh is His name.
But you must return to your God.
Maintain love and justice,
and always put your hope in God.
Hosea 12:5-6 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Again, here in verse six comes what is actually a direct order from Yahweh, Maintain Love.
Jesus, YahShua, said it like this in John 15:13, "No one has greater love than this, that someone would lay down his life for his friends."
For we humans, we are told to 'maintain' love.  Our Lord here gives us the directive to love as He loved.  He both did lay down His life for us, and He also now lives to make intercession for us. (Hebrews 7:25)  Even before we could be called His friends.  This carries with it the call to live our lives for our friends.

To die for one loved is a very Godly quality.  To live for one loved is likewise Godly, and often just as difficult, perhaps more so.  

Oh Yahweh, teach us to love as You are!

This is in the name.
