Christian~ese 101: Love


Christian~ese 101

begins

with the word

Love

because

"Whoever does not Love does not know God, because God is Love." I John 4:8

Love

is an action~

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31

Love

is an action

as we are called to

Love

the Lord

&

Love

our neighbor as ourselves.

The questions arise~

Who is our neighbor

&

Do I really even love myself?

First things first

"What is Love?"~

not according to Webster

but according to

the One who knows

first hand

what

Love really is~

"Love never gives up.

Love cares more for others than for self.

Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.

Love doesn’t strut, Doesn’t have a swelled head, Doesn’t force itself on others, Isn’t always “me first,” Doesn’t fly off the handle, Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, Doesn’t revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, Puts up with anything, Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end." I Corinthians 13:4-7

Hmm...

Love

does cover it all, doesn't it?

Therefore

we can

Love our neighbor~ whomever we come into contact with

&

Love yourself~receive and believe God's love for you

Just because

Love

is

Him

who

puts

Love

into action

all the time

&

now it is our turn

to

Walk the Talk~

"But for right now, until that completeness,

we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation:

Trust steadily in God,

Hope unswervingly,

Love extravagantly.

And the best of the three is

Love."

I Corinthians 13:3
