What Is Love?
Love is not just something you do; it’s something you are. It is often premeditated, sometimes spontaneous, and always unselfish.
Love does not cry “unfair” when wrongs are flung in its path; it does not gloat with “I told you so’s” when another reaps the consequences of reckless living.
Love hangs on, even in the toughest hour; and when everyone else moans “impossible!” love believes that all things are possible.
Love requires nothing for its gift, but enjoys basking in the satisfaction of a free spirit and a grateful heart. It derives no pleasure in seeking credit for its day.
Love chooses to see the best in everything, and in everyone, but boldly speaks the truth in order to promote healing.
The product of love is love, born in the heart, nurtured with grace and goodness; by the author of love Himself.
-Rebecca Barlow Jordan
Love never fails (1 Corinthians 13:8 NKJV).
MOVIE, SON OF GOD, IS A REMINDER OF LOVE
How do you define love? If you saw the movie, Son of God, you know what a beautiful reminder of supreme love that was through the life of Christ. No matter how many times I hear His story, see a movie, or read His story, I understand afresh how little I know of love–and how much I want to know. Seeing Jesus’s love and compassion for all people, His complete obedience to His Father, and His brutal death and victorious resurrection still moves me to tears…and yet to joy.
How Do You Express Your Gratitude?
How do you express your gratitude to the One who died for you and who loves you unconditionally? Impossible to ever show it adequately, but a good starting place? Follow the Son of God’s example: live in Him, and let Him love through you.
Love involves more than something you do. It’s who Jesus is…and will be through you.
