“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38 (NKJV)
The world is full of people who misuse the word “love”; so much to the point it has almost lost its meaning. People are hurting each other because of selfish ambition and attach the word “love” to justify the action. If one were looking for the true meaning of love by watching the world they would be confused. The only type of “love” that the world is able to give is selfish, always wondering what it will receive in turn for whatever it does for others. However, the attributes of love in the Bible are expressed as: “suffers long and is kind; it does not envy; does not parade itself; is not puffed up; does not behave rudely; does not seek its own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” Love is not a feeling, it is an action.
The best example of love we have is God. There is no greater love than the love that God has for His daughters. He loves us so much that He gave us His Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. As a result, we were adopted into His family and became joint heirs to the throne with Jesus Christ. He not only said He loves us but He backed up His words by putting it into action! Because we are His daughters we can witness the truth about His love, and know that it is for real! The most awesome thing about God’s love is that no matter what we do, it will never make Him stop loving us. No matter how bad it seems we may have messed up or feel unworthy of His love, He gives it to us freely that we may accept it and in turn love Him. No man here on earth can give us the same unconditional love that God gives us. His love is tried and true.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, we thank you for Your awesome love that You show to us daily. We know that it is for real because nothing can separate us from it. God, please continue to cover us in Your love so that we are able to love one another with the same unconditional love that You give to us. Amen.
