The Holy Bible in my humble understanding is from Genesis to Revelation (to include the missing books) a Love story. I feel it's all about Love and with that being said. Love is evidence of our salvation, and how do we show our Love for Yah. I want to list some verses as support. Feel free to sharpen me and add to the verses. My brother Timothy from The Maro Polo group used this as an awesome exercise in sharing Scriptures.❤ Exodus 20:6 ❤

Matthew 22:36-40 ❤

If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love.
And we know that FOR THOSE WHO LOVE GOD all things work together for good,[a]for THOSE WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.

“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined,
what GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM ”—

Overcoming the World
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him. 2 BY THIS We KNOW THAT WE LOVE the children of God, WHEN WE LOVE GOD AND OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS. 3 FOR THIS IS THE LOVE OF GOD, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. 4 FOR EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN BORN OF GOD OVERCOMES THE WORLD. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—OUR FAITH. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD?

And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it.
