With Valentine’s Day behind us, I could not help but think about love. What does love truly means? I can tell you first hand its not always butterflies and happiness. I believe love is truly a choice, a choice to love someone even when they’re unlikable or unlovable. A choice to forgive the person that wronged you, a choice to admit that something is not quite right in the relationship, a choice to speak the truth in love, a choice that your spouse is not your enemy, a choice to not respond when you really want to etc.
While pondering on what to write this verse came to me. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 NIV
In God’s love for us He sent His one and only Son to us here on earth. To save those who believe in Jesus to have eternal life. How deep must God’s love be for us, that He sent His only son generations before we were even born to be save us. It’s a beautiful thing that Jesus sacrificed his life for us to complete God’s will. I know we can’t love each other how God loves us because He’s God. I’m pretty sure He wants us to love each other how Jesus loved here on earth. So what does love truly mean it’s making the choice to love someone even when it difficult. Be encouraged!!
