Love is a powerful force. Love is stronger than death, death cannot stop love no matter how hard it tries.
I remember the first time I felt adult love, I can tell you what I was wearing, where I was and I feel the same flush come over my face as I type this, and that my friend was a very long time ago, that’s how strong that love still is. If we had more of the agapelove of God for our fellow man, we would not see the crimes we see in the news, we wouldn’t see abused spouses, children, and our loved ones that have to be in a facility for elder care would be safe from being tossed into their bed like a sack of potatoes.
How have we come so far from the love that Jesus shed on the cross, yes I said love not blood, because he had to feel that love for us to be able to lay down His life for our sins. John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. When Jesus was asked what was the greatest commandment, Mark 12:31 He said, “The first in importance is, ‘Listen, Israel: The Lord your God is one; so love the Lord God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence and energy.’ And here is the second: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ There is no other commandment that ranks with these.”
I realize that I do need an attitude adjustment about a few people but God is not finished me yet, I’m not perfect I’m just forgiven, and so are you!
