There is this unbelievable feeling when you are in love with someone. You think about them all the time. You can’t wait to see, talk, or be with them again. There is nothing else that feels the same way. This is how I feel about my wife. Ok, I know some of you, who know us, will say, “Yeah, but you two have only been married 7 months!” This may be true, but you see I have purposed in my heart to never fall “out” of love with her. I have this desire to forever find another way, to make her feel loved.
Which is a nice segue into my second point. A greater feeling than loving someone else is knowing that you are loved by them. Again, I have to point to my wife. She is so understanding, patient, and forgiving. Knowing I am loved by her will cause me to smile for no particular reason.
But even greater than her love, is God’s love. His love is perfect, and again I will smile when I sense his love come over me in waves. Not because He just did something for me, but because I am his child. God can’t help but love us because, after all, He is love. (1 John 4:8)
Ways to experience this kind of love:
- This kind of love is recognized when you spend time with God.
- This kind of love is known after spending time reading the Bible, and learning how He has loved others.
- This kind of love is solidified by loving God back. You do that by praising him, and worshipping him. When you are confident, knowing how much God loves you, nothing that happens to you in life can threaten your relationship with God.
Be love to others:
In the current condition of our world, we, who know, have, and trust in God’s love need more now than ever to share that kind of love with others, who may be lost, confused, or scared. God’s love through you, might just be the very thing that saves their life now and for eternity!
