Amazing!

Amazing!

God’s love can be confused with other types of love. There are three main words in Greek for love: Eros is a sexual kind of love. Phileo is brotherly love. Agape love is the highest form of love. It is unconditional, gives for the sake of giving, and expects nothing in return.

Receiving and placing the love of God above all others brings fulfillment. When this agape love is in a marriage, the others flow, and issues are handled with God in the center. When it is the priority of a single person, it removes loneliness and gives peace. In handling conflicts, the love of God overcomes offenses and facilitates forgiveness.

We cannot expect this love from others who might not walk in its reality yet; we love them that way, regardless. We learn to see and know people, including ourselves, by the spirit, not the flesh. Genuine friendships in God flourish even when people are apart. Fear cannot stay when we abide in this powerful love. We yield to this amazing love and pray for its manifestation, from glory to glory!

1 Corinthians 13:8 (a) “Love never fails.”

Love Gives

Love Gives

Because God so loved us that He gave… we so love that we give. God’s love is what we are to give, above all. It is a gift; therefore, we give it with no expectation of receiving anything in return. God keeps on loving us and we keep on loving, by grace through faith.

As we give love, forgiveness, joy, and peace abound. It’s not our human love we give; it’s the unconditional love of God we have in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. We recognize we are walking with the Lord by the way we love one another. We express it through the way we respect, honor, and value everyone.

It’s not what is given in the natural that has value; it’s the love that is given through a gift. This gift can be a hug, a smile, a scripture, or a cookie. The value placed on a gift is the same for all gifts: the love that is behind it. A hug from a heart of love is worth much more than an expensive gift from obligation. Truly, the Lord Himself is a gift that never stops giving, from glory to glory!

1 John 4:11-12 “Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.”
