But the Greatest of These is Love
So today, I want to talk about love. Not the mushy gooey, romance love. Not the love that fades or can break your heart love. I'm talking about the love that has no limits or boundaries. It's uncontainable. It's deep and vast. It surpasses all understanding. It doesn't break, wound or scar. It only heals. It's powerful and it conquers all. It's sacrificial. Its always there for you. It's there for anyone who accepts it. You don't have to love with this love, in order to be loved by this kind of love. This love asks for no repayment. It is not achieved by works. It is not accessible only to people who are perfect. Because, there are no perfect people. We are all marked by sin. And we all are drowning in it if we do not accept this love. This love, is our saving grace. We can drown in this love, this grace, instead. We can breathe easily. This love does not judge. Humans are faulty. We judge. This love, does not judge and will not judge and cannot judge. It does not love only some people, it loves everyone. Noone is left out. This love, is easily accesible. You just need to reach out and grab it. Touch it. Believe in it. This is God's love. God is love. We can not know real love, if we do not know God. God sent down His only son to die for us all. To save us from the sin we let into the world. This was the biggest act of love of all kind. Humans love. But we cannot even begin to love like God loves. Think about how much you love your best friend. Or maybe a close family member? Or maybe you've fallen in love with someone yourself? Well, no matter how much you love that person, you cannot love him or her as much as God loves you. As much as God loves them. That's crazy love. Indescribable love. A love we should try to show. A love we should aim for having. We need to stop judging, and love everyone (with their flaws and all) like God loves us. We need this love. This love keeps us together. Keeps us functioning. Keeps us living. Not just in this life, but it keeps us living when we are dead. It gives us enternal life, this love. Jesus saved us all. And all we have to do, is accept this gift. Believe in Him. And follow Him. Whether you are a Christian and know this already or not a Christian and just finding out about this, everyone should aim and strive for God's selfless love. We're gonna fall short, and we are going to mess up. Yes. But that's life. You pick yourself up, and start again. Because loving like He loves us, is worth it. And His love, forgives. if we ask for it. If we mean it. It'll fix instead of destroy. Try it. And be happy. Be happy that God provides all the Love you need. If you have any questions about His love, feel free to ask. I can't promise to have all the answers, because there is so much we'll never grasp or know about God. But if I can be of any help to you, or if you have anything to share, feel free to.
1 Corinthians 13:13; "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
