LOVE

What is love? Do you know it?
That word is tossed around these days so leisurely. There are all kinds of definitions for “LOVE”, but what does it mean to you?

Is it the kind of love that means you never have to say you’re sorry.

Is it love that makes you feel joy. The kind that when you awake in the morning you feel alive inside.

Is it romantic love, that leaves you breathless.

Is is putting another’s wants and needs before your own.

Is the kind of love that says that you are enough.

Is it love that is,
Patient
Kind
Does not Envy
Does not Boast
Is not Proud
Does not Dishonor Others
Is not Self-Seeking
Is not Easily Angered
Keeps No Records of Wrongs
Does Not Delight in Evil
But Rejoices in the Truth
Always Protects
Always Trust
Always Hopes
And Always Preserves (1 Cor 13:4-8)

All of these are beautiful examples or expressions of love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 is one of my favorite verses and so beautifully sums up what I believe a marriage should be, between a man and a woman.

However what does the word “LOVE”, really look like…The Ultimate Example of Love..

Is it the sacrificial kind of love that over 2000 years ago hung, bled, and died on a cross so that you and I might have eternal salvation with our Father in Heaven.

I believe that is what “LOVE”, really and truly looks like!

There is no greater love, than the love demonstrated by our Lord and Savior-Jesus Christ, that fateful day on Calvary Hill. (John 15:13)

What is love to you?

If you are feeling unloved today. Like you have no one in this entire world who cares for you. Family and Friends all but have abandoned you…

Remember this… YOU ARE LOVED! And you are not alone. Jesus loves you. He loved you enough to die for you and He loves you enough even still today, tomorrow and for all eternity. His love is everlasting.

Don’t place your value and worth into the heart of man, but know that your worth comes from the heart of God Almighty Himself. He says that you are worthy. He says that you are of value. He says that your life has a purpose. He will never leave or forsake you. He promises with Him you will never walk alone. He’s right beside you, every step of the way. He cares for you. You can trust Him!
