What’s This Thing Called Love?

…Or Gladly is the Cross I’d bare.

1 John 4:7-8 7My dear friends, let us love one another, since love is from God and everyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. 8Whoever fails to love does not know God, because God is love.

What is love?  What do we know about this miraculous gift from God?  Do any of us truly know how to love that way He intended, or are we just trying to figure all this out.  A true, unconditional love is hard to find.  I have only been able to find it in the way that, no matter what we have gone through, my son still loves to hug me and say that he loves me.  Love, no matter what (truly unconditional), is a rare love indeed.  It is the love God showed to us when when He sent us Jesus to teach us, love us, and die for us.


By these stripes, you are healed.

John and his letters told people to love as God loved them, but it was Paul’s letter to the Corinthians that really put a perspective on what true unconditional love really is:

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

 4 Love is always patient and kind;

love is not boastful or conceited,

 

 

 

 

What cross do you bear?
He bore this one for you.

5 it is never rude and never seeks to take advantage, it does not take offense or store up grievances.

6 Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but finds its joy in the truth.

 

 

 


...bowing His head,
He gave up His spirit.

7 It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes.

8 Love never comes to an end.
Are you still working toward that kind of love?  I know I am.  I am just glad that I love Him, His Son, and all that He has done for us.

Until next time, God Bless.
