LOVE IS A VERB

Ephesians 3:16-19 … I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

          The love of Christ is deeper than the deepest ocean and wider than the sky; it is infinite, in that it is never ending. No matter how hard we try we could never comprehend God’s deep, abiding love for us. There is nothing on this earth that compares to it. Love was defined two thousand years ago when Christ willingly allowed Himself to be nailed to a wooden cross meant for criminals. Love is defined when we read that God loved us first. (1 John 4:19) Romans 5:8 tells us that while we were still sinners, apart from God, Christ died for us. This is how God demonstrated His great, enduring, endless love for us.

          Talk is cheap. A person can say anything, but it is in the doing where truth resides. Don’t tell me that you love me, show me. That is what Christ did. In today’s vernacular He put His money where His mouth is. The word love shows up nearly seven hundred times in the Bible. It is of paramount importance to us as human beings. We should strive to exhibit the qualities listed in 1st Corinthians with the help of the Holy Spirit. On our own we can never measure up, but with the Spirit working in us, we can achieve anything for the Lord. Love is the essence of who God is. If we are to be like Christ in our daily lives, we must learn to actively love. Love by our actions, not just by our words. Don’t tell someone you love them, show them.

WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!!
