LAFPDL: The meaning behind the name (LAFPDL Poster)

“One acronym that I will never forget is LAFPDL. It was on Grandpa’s license plate, it was his email address, but mostly it was the motto by which he lived. The L stands for Love, the A for Acceptance, the F for Forgiveness, the P for “Pray for” the D is for “Do good for,” and the last L is again for Love. That is the most perfect acronym to describe him, he did everything out of love.”
- Jacob Mullins (Grandson)

Pat wrote the following description of LAFPDL:
“The letters are from six scriptures the Lord spoke to my heart that are His process of the Holy Spirit revealing jesus in us - to us - and through us- to bring us to an AGAPE love in any / all / relationships.  (I use a New English Bible)”

L = Love the command only He can fulfill; how do you do this Lord? What is the love you command of us? hear and do what I tell you by the power of the Holy Spirit. - John 14:34 & 2 John 6 & 1 John 5:1-3

A = Accept in the same way as Christ accepted us we must choose to accept each other. - Romans 15:7

F = Forgive unconditionally as you have been forgiven, and refuse to remember the offence against you. - Matthew 6:14-15 & Hebrews 10:17 & 1 Cor 13:6

P = Pray for those who presecute you pray for them and love them with my love by hearing and obeying Me. - Matthew 5:44

D = Do good to the people who are your persecutors & love them by hearing and obeying Me. - Luke 6:35

and the Lord said and if you will faithfully hear and do these things in the power of My Spirit you will experience the love I speak of:

L = Love as I love you (Agape Love) - 1 Cor 13 & John 14:15
