LOVE IS IN THE BIG BOOK OF GOD
Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. It is Love that give meaning to life and life without Love is meaningless
1John 4:8_whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. Nothing God ever does, or ever did, or ever will do, is separate us from the love of God.” Everything He has ever done has been out of love. I thank God for this choice time and for the many reminders of His love “the sun, the moon, the stars, the earth, the birth of a child, the smile of friends. I thank Him for scriptures, for the privilege of prayer, and for that most marvellous reminder of His love.
Love is a “choice,” not a “feeling.” But you must know that it is a commandment and the greatest of all. Now if love is the greatest commandment, it should be our first priority. To be sincere with you, Love and the topic about Love is missing among us today. When our concept of love is different from God’s, concept, we suffer from our prideful mistakes. Love brings hope and believes the best in others, it is a prize, It is demonstrated through our actions and our words. Strive to develop the type of love that protects and defends others. For instance, stop yourself when you’re tempted to gossip or belittle others, and turn the conversation if someone is taking you in that direction. The Bible is clear: If you have not love, it profits you nothing (1 Corinthians 13:3). You can be well read in all sixty-six books of the Bible, preach as well as World best preachers, and have a Ph.D. in theology, and best in Intercession, but if you don’t have love, you have nothing. Make love, forgiveness, and unity top priorities. They will not rise to that level on their own.
God and his greatest attributes is Love and no matter how you see it or understand it, you cannot fake LOVE. Young men and adults who pretend to fake Love later end up to unwanted marriage and surgical of unwanted pregnancy. Which is a (blood Wastage) Some Christians with unforgiving Spirit has denied love it’s place and they end up working for God without God, coupled with unfruitful ministration. Have you cheated people who trusted you out of Love thinking that you are smart, restitution is the answer, I don’t know if you are good at destroying people at the back, marketing yourself as an Angel. Another people will still do you the same to you because you are not promoting Love instead betraying Love, for whatsoever you sow that is what you will rip. You cannot fake LOVE.
Why it is that true love touches every heart and the phrase “I Love You” evokes universal sweetness?
Men give various reasons, but the real reason is that every person who comes to earth is a spirit son or daughter of God. Since all love emanates from God, we are born with the capacity and the desire to love and to be loved. One of the strongest connections we have with our premarital life is how much our Father and Jesus loved us and how much we loved Him. Even though a veil was drawn over our memory, whenever we sense true love, it awakens a longing that cannot be denied.
Responding to true love is part of our very being. We innately desire to reconnect here with the love we felt there. Only as we feel God’s love and fill our hearts with His love can we be truly happy.
God’s love fills the immensity of space; therefore, there is no shortage of love in the universe, only in our willingness to do what is needed to feel it. To do this, Jesus explained we must “love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul, strength, and mind, and thy neighbour as thyself” (Luke 10:27).
Filled with His love, we can endure pain, quell fear, forgive freely, avoid contention, renew strength, and bless and help others. The more we obey God, the more we desire to help others. The more we help others, the more we love God and on and on. Conversely, the more we disobey God and the more selfish we are, the less love we feel.
Trying to find lasting love without obeying God is like trying to quench thirst by drinking from an empty cup—you can go through the motions, but the thirst remains. Similarly, trying to find love without helping and sacrificing for others is like trying to live without eating—it is against the laws of nature and cannot succeed. We cannot fake love. It must become part of us.
Charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endured forever; and whosoever is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him.
I once read a story about a soldier who was finally coming home after having fought in Vietnam. He called his parents from San Francisco. “Mom and Dad, I’m coming home, but I’ve a favour to ask. I have a friend I’d like to bring home with me. “Sure,” they replied, “we’d love to meet him. “There’s something you should know the son continued, he was hurt pretty badly in the fighting. He stepped on a land mind and lost an arm and a leg. He has nowhere else to go, and I want him to come live with us. “I’m sorry to hear that, son. Maybe we can help him find somewhere to live. “No, Mom and Dad, I want him to live with us. “Son,” said the father, “you don’t know what you’re asking.
Someone with such a handicap would be a terrible burden on us. We have our own lives to live, and we can’t let something like this interfere with our lives. I think you should just come home and forget about this guy. He’ll find a way to live on his own.” At that point, the son hung up the phone. The parents heard nothing more from him. A few days later, however, they received a call from the San Francisco police. Their son had died after falling from a building, they were told. The police believed it was suicide. The grief-stricken parents flew to San Francisco and were taken to the city morgue to identify the body of their son. They recognized him, but to their horror they also discovered something they didn’t know, their son had only one arm and one leg.
The parents in this story are like many of us. We find it easy to love those who are good-looking or fun to have around, but we don’t like people who inconvenience us or make us feel uncomfortable. We would rather stay away from people who aren’t as healthy, beautiful, or smart as we are. Thankfully, there’s someone who won’t treat us that way. Someone who loves us with an unconditional love that welcomes us into the forever family, regardless of how messed up we are.
When we understand who God is, who we are, how He loves us, and what His plan is for us, fear evaporates. When we get the tiniest glimpse of these truths, our concern over worldly things vanishes. To think we actually fall for Satan’s lies for power, fame, or wealth as important is truly laughable. That would be where it is so sad.
I learned that just as rockets must overcome the pull of gravity to roar into space, so we must overcome the pull of the world to soar into the eternal realms of understanding and love. I realized my mortal life might end there, but there was no panic. I knew life would continue, and whether here or there didn’t really matter. What did matter was how much love I had in my heart. I knew I needed more! I knew that our joy now and forever is inextricably tied to our capacity to love.
Never underestimate the power of true love, for it knows no barriers. When filled with God’s love, we can do and see and understand things that we could not otherwise do or see or understand. Filled with His love, we can endure pain, quell fear, forgive freely, avoid contention, renew strength, and bless and help others in ways surprising even to us.
Jesus Christ was filled with unfathomable love as He endured incomprehensible pain, cruelty, and injustice for us. Through His love for us, He rose above otherwise insurmountable barriers. His love knows no barriers. He invites us to follow Him and partake of His unlimited love so we too may rise above the pain and cruelty and injustice of this world and help and forgive and bless… Remember LOVE is in the big book of God
