Love
A new commandment I (Jesus) give to you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
John 13:34-35
The letter of James very well sums up the message of the New Testament as it shows the way we all must think and act as we walk in our Christian faith, that we be found acceptable by our God and by His Christ. It is recommended you read it in its entirety. His message is a message of love (See 1John 3:11). Love covers a multitude of sins: Above all hold unfailing your love for one another, since love covers a multitude of sins.
1Peter 4:8
 For I (God) desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God, rather than burnt offerings.
Hosea 6:6
 Let all that you do be done in love.
1Corinthians 16:14
 Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.
Proverbs 10:12
 We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death.
1John 3:14
 God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. In this is love  perfected with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment. And this commandment we have from him, that he who loves God should love his brother also.
1John 4:16,17,21
 
If you really fulfill the royal law, according to the scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well.
James 1:8
 So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law and the  prophets.
Matthew 7:7
 And this is love, that we follow his commandments; this is the commandment, as you have heard from the beginning, that you follow love.
2John 6
 
…the aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and sincere
 
faith.
1Timothy 1:5
 
…love…binds everything together in perfect harmony.
Colossians 3:14
Little children, let us not love in word or speech but in deed and in truth.
1John 3:18
 He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.
1John 4:8 (See also 1John 4:7-21 and 2Corinthians 13:11)
 Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and we receive from him whatever we ask, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him. And this is his commandment, that we should believe in his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. All who keep his commandments abide in him, and he in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the (Holy) Spirit which he has given us.
1John 3:21-24 (We are united as one by the Holy Spirit)
 In Scene 6 of the 2
nd
 Tableau of the Initiation of Plato
, it is said “Love is the source of
life, the principle of th
e Universe! The grand law of harmony, whence divers things are born.”
 As is shown in the following, faith without good works is dead. Love is all-important:
 Not every one who says to me, “Lord, Lord,” shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does
 the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day (Judgment Day), many will say to me,
“Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many
mighty works in your name (all gifts of the Holy Spirit. See 1Corinthians 13:1-13)? And then
will I declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from me you evildoers.”
Matthew 7:21-23
 A person may be possessed by the Holy Spirit, displaying all the gifts provided by the Holy Spirit, can have such great faith as to be able to move mountains by their faith in believing it is so and not doubting, and can give his life and die for God and for the testimony of Jesus, but if he does all this and has not love for others, he is unacceptable to God and Jesus, unworthy of salvation. The following scripture is of the utmost importance: If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels (speaking in tongues), but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge (all gifts of the Holy Spirit), and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains,  but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all that I have, and if I deliver my body to be  burned (all works), but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love is not  jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things,  believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. When I was a child (a babe in Christ) I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood. So faith (in God and Jesus), love (for others), hope (of eternal life) abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1Corinthians 13:1-13
 
 
 He has showed you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD (God) require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8
 
Through love God gave his only son to die for us (See John 3:16). Jesus‟ love for us led
to his death on a cross (See Galatians 2:20). What you do (or do not do) for others, you do (or do not do) for Jesus: When the Son of man (Jesus) comes in his glory (when he comes in his cherub at the Second Coming), and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne (in Jerusalem). Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left (this refers to the Judgment). Then (Jesus) the King will say to those at his right hand,
„Come, O blessed of my Father (God), inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the
foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and
you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.‟ Then the righteous will answer him, „Lord,
when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or
in prison and visit thee? And the King (Jesus) will answer them, „Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.‟ Then he will say to those at his left hand, „Dep
art from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire (of hell) prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and
you did not visit me.‟ Then they also will answer, “Lord, when did we see thee hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to thee?‟ Then he will answer them, „Truly, I say to you, as you did
 
it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.‟ And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Matthew 25:31-46
 What you do (or do not do) for others, you do (or do not do) for God also: He who oppresses a poor man insults his Maker (God), but he who is kind to the needy honor him.
Proverbs 14:31
 He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD (God), and he will repay him for his deed.
Proverbs 19:17
Righteous Requirements
Seek good, a
nd not evil, that you may live…
Amos 5:14
 Thus says the LORD (God) of hosts, Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy each to his brother, do not oppress the widow, the fatherless, the sojourner, or the poor; and let none of you devise evil against his brother in his heart.
Zechariah 7:8
