“Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth:…”
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 KJV
Love conquers all. Love covers a multitude of sins. Love is not seen with the natural eye, but is felt in the seat of your emotions. Love is not puffed up. It does not boast or brag. It does not behave itself unseemly. So again, got love?
It is easy to love those who love you back. The real test and challenge comes in loving the unloveable, loving those you know don’t like you, those who despitefully use you, those who mistreat you, and the list goes on. So again the question is asked, Got love?
There are 8 different types of love:
- Eros-based on feelings towards another
- Storge-love without physical attraction
- Ludus-affection between young lovers or puppy love
- Mania-madness or obsessiveness
- Pragma-enduring love
- Philautia-self love
- Agape-selfless unconditional love
God is love
Kirk Franklin said it best in the love song: “Love, a word that comes and goes but few people really know what it means to really love somebody.
Jesus shows us how and what it really means to love. Throughout our ups and downs, He loves us. Inspite of our wrongs, mistakes, or bad choices, He loves us. So I ask the question, got love?
If you got Jesus, show some signs of His love.
The wages of our sin, gave us the death penalty, but the gift of God gave us eternal life. We were declared guilty of all charges, but because of His love for us. He took our sins upon Himself so that we may live.
