Never Ending Love
“If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.” 1 Corinthians verse 13
We can do all things and be all things to all men, we can give all our money to charity treat everyone with respect, go to church every Sunday and read the bible everyday. But as we see from the verse if we dont know love and have it as part of us then we have nothing. This love isnt a soppy , chocolates and roses kind of love. Its not a kind of love that changes over time. It’s not a love that asks to be loved back. So what kind of love is it ? Its is the love of God, the never-failing never-changing love , in the Greek which this verse was written the translation of the word love is “Agápe” this means unconditional love. Gods amazing love is free to anyone that wants it, but if we dont have it then all we do and all that is good is ultimately useless, too harsh ? Well look at all the ‘good’ things in the world today , they all end in sadness and disappointment. This love is offered to you by God ,continually it is free , it forgives everything ( and it has a lot to forgive us for). Gods love is a jealous love , God wants your whole heart and nothing less. Its not easy theres hundred things in the world that want our love , but if we give all our love to God he promises to love us with his eternal , passionate and all encompassing love.
If you know God then exam yourself and just check that you arent cheating on God, with other loves. If you arent a Christian then why not ? You will not find love like Gods love in any other way, his love is free , it only comes with one condition that you love him back, he came into this world he was abused, punished and killed because he loves us , Why not love him back ?
“God loves each of us as if there were only one of us”
