You hear the word love used for food, name brand clothes, purses, perfumes, cars, houses, sex, money and entertainment.
There was a time the word love was used in sincerity and truth. Now, it is used casually with conditions. Unfortunately, this has happened with the people of God. Have we forgotten what the word of God says about Love, have we forgotten who is Love, have we forgotten that Love transformed us into new creatures, have we forgotten that Love never fails?
People of God let us not forget that GOD is LOVE and He does not want us to love like the world does.
God’s word tells us, do not love the world or the things in the world. He says for everything in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of one’s possession is not from the Father but is from the world. The world is passing away with its lust but he that does the will of God shall abide forever. (I John 2: 15 – 17).
Certainly, God does want us to enjoy all the blessing He’s provided for us. However, the blessings are not more important than the Blesser. Here are scriptures to read that will encourage and keep us on track in becoming and remaining true in loving God and each other.
I John 4:7-12 tells us that love comes from God, God is love, and that He loved us first.
Matthew 22:34 – 40 tells us how to love God and others.
I Corinthians 13:1 – 13 tells us what love is and what love is not.
Put to practice and you will be blessed!
