True Love

Today is Valentine’s Day, a day of love and passion.  A day card makers, chocolate companies and rose distributors are extremely happy about.

     But just what is “True Love”?

As a noun it means a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.  As a verb it carries the meaning to have a profoundly tender, passionate affection for.

     Movies define it as “Your soul’s recognition of its counterpart in another”

      But God defines it as the best gift ever bestowed upon man by Him.  1 Corinthians 13:3-8 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profiteth me nothing.  4 Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.  8 Love never faileth

 

     May I just say that you don’t need to confuse yourself between love and lust.  When looking for True Love, you need to go no further than to see what God did for you because of His love for you.  Then search for someone that will love you like God loves you.  Then you will find your True Love.  1 John 4:8 tells us the God is Love.

    What’s love got to do with it?  Everything my friend, EVERYTHING.

                        John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life
