Love is not an emotion…but it can be emotional.
Love is not having sex…but it is supposed to be a blessed part of a marriage.
Love is not expensive stuff, or fancy cloths…things all break, get old, tear, wear out or rot.
Love is something that humanity in our fallen-ness is actually incapable of.
“Be gracious to me, O God, according to your Lovingkindnesses; according to the greatness of your compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against you, you alone have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight.” (Psalm 51:1-4)
“…the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28
“For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but , but that the world might be saved through Him.” (John 3:17)
“Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!...” (Romans 7:24-25)
“…if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)
1. Love God with the entirety of our being, and
2. Love your neighbor as yourself.
