Love – God’s greatest commandment.
Love – what is love? A desire to please others or ourselves.
Luke 3:21-22 Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
There are multiple Scriptures that tells in God’s own words, how much he loves his Son Jesus. Matthew 17:5, Matthew 3:17, Mark 1:11, Luke 3:22 and Luke 9:35.
On most scriptures the words are, “This is my son whom I love: with him I am well pleased.” Every time I hear these words it makes my heart jump with joy thinking about the love the father (God) had towards his son and thinking of how much the son must have felt hearing it from his Father. I’m sure everyone on this planet would love to share that same type of love, how about you?
In I Corinthians 13:1-13, Paul explains the importance of love and all the attributes. There many times when I look at all the facets of love, some that I fall down on, example Love is patient, this being one of them. I do know the Lord keeps working on me to develop more patience.
The question is, what is love to you? God showed his love by giving his only son to die on the cross for us, Jesus’ death on the cross covered our sins, so that we may be with him for eternity.
Some people love ice cream, fast cars, money, and big houses, as you look at these examples, see the love really is only for themselves not for others.
True love is giving ourselves to others out of a desire to see their happiness grow.
True love we give ourselves, without expecting anything back .
Remember You have an unlimited supply of love. Love doesn’t have a quota or a cap. What determines how much you give or receive is up to… you.
