1.feel a deep romantic or sexual attachment to (someone).
“do you love me?”
The Lord shows Agape Love. A selfless Love. The type of Love that a man,child, woman, or thing can’t give us is his love. He loved us before we were created nothing can compare to his love. It’s unconditional, he knew that we would turn our backs on him and he still loves us. He smiled when we found our way back to his Agape Love never throwing what we did to him back in our faces he just took us in willingly. He even made us new creatures in him putting our old lives to death. This type of Love is deeper than the ocean. See people can “fall out of love” so they say but Jesus never does he love all his people and he waits for his people. See some people when the love of their life has moved on they feel they have to move on. Not Jesus! He’s such a gentleman. He takes care of the world and still waits for us. He is a long suffering God. Which means he will suffer for how ever long until we find our way to him. No one is forgotten. Please don’t take this lightly because one day he will stop waiting and send his son Jesus back. He’s waiting on us cling to him now. Get right now. Man that’s so deep to me.
He’s so selfless.
He gave himself willingly to be tortured for our sins. For us! Who does that? Half the people he has given his life for disown him to this day. Guess what Jesus still loves them. This type of love never goes away. David talks about the love of God in Psalms 21:7-8 when he says “For the king trusts in the LORD; through the unfailing love of the Most High he will not be shaken. Your hand will lay hold on all your enemies; your right hand will seize your foes”. This type of love won’t fail you. When you get married you take a chance, a leap of faith on humans because you know they aren’t perfect just like you aren’t perfect. This is why Christ is suppose to be the center of every marriage. He is the foundation. God is perfect in ALL his ways. (As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. Psalms 18:30)
Never forget that us as Christians must show love just like Jesus showed love for us. Yes we want and have all these gifts. Yes we pay our tithes and give to the poor. Yes we cast out demons in Jesus name. We even speak in tongue but what about Love? (1 Corinthians 13:1-3 please read that) We can do all these things and its still possible that we can have hate in our hearts. Wherever your treasure is your heart will be there also Matthew 6:21. So if we have hate in our hearts that’s where our treasure is. You can do nothing pertaining to God without love because God is love. He loves us soooooo much words could never amount to how much he loves us.
1 Corinthians 13:13
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
Love so important because Love covers over a multitude of sin. 1 Peter 4:8
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:4
So if you have anything against anyone and you are a strong follower of Christ FORGIVE FORGIVE FORGIVE! You can not enter God’s kingdom not loving your brother or sister. Love is important to our God so it MUST be important to us. Since we now know what love is we must love everyone how Christ loved us.
I love you all act in love today 😘
