Just What Is Love?

  1. Love: A profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.
  2. A feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.
  3. Sexual passion or desire.
  4. A person toward whom love is felt; beloved person; sweetheart.
  5. Used in direct address as a term of endearment, affection, or the like: Would you like to see a movie, love?

Although there were several more these are the first 5 definitions on Dictionary.com.  But love truly can‘t be define.  By the world standards love is a feeling that has so many different levels to it that no one can place one and only one sentence to define what love means to them.  There have been several songs written about love from just about every different aspect there is.  There have been movies made to show a vast variety of love.  There have been numerous books discussing the very highs and lows on the matter.  1 Corinthians 13:4 Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth no; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up.  1John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us.  God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God and God in him.  The Bible, which is God inspired, shows me that Jesus Himself is the love that is spoken about in the verses above.  If you do a study of how Jesus lived while He was here on the earth, you can see that He fits both verses.  God glorifies Himself within Himself and shows that through Jesus as His son.  John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The word that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.  Jesus is love!  Is it no wonder that we have such a hard time describing love?  For all that, Jesus is, there aren’t enough words in our tiny knowledge to speak a well definition of Him.  Jesus has been with us from the beginning.  Well truly, even before that.  For He was with us before the world even began.  Genesis 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.  Here we read that the Word and Jesus are also one and the same.  The Word of God is Jesus.

We all know love when we feel it.  As a child grows, they learn how to be loved and how to give love.  Love is such an important part of each of our lives that everyone fights for it. We all want to be loved.   And once one has love they fight to keep it.  We get angry and sad when someone has taken something or someone that we love.  Our perspective of love changes as people change.  As children, I doubt that you loved your parents the same way that you do now.  As a Christian, when you were new, your love for Jesus may have seemed overwhelming.  But the longer you follow Him, the deeper that love is to grow.  It isn’t that Jesus has changed.  It’s that He, Jesus, Love, has changed you.  The longer you follow Him the easier it should become to love others.  John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. There was a man in the flesh that loved everyone he met.  He loved us all so much that He was willing to die for us.  To show us just how much he truly did love us.  Jesus is God and God is in Him. For God so loved the world, that He gave up His love, Jesus, so that we would not parish.  John 4:1 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.  The words Spirit and Truth are also hard to describe.  You don’t just look around and see a spirit, and the truth is whatever you believe it is, even if you maybe wrong.  And yet, we know and have a good understanding as to what they are.  I have heard that to hear God and His word you must use your spiritual ears. When Jesus spoke, the Pharisees were not using their spiritual ears at all because they enjoyed how their system of worship was benefitting themselves.  There is a key to love.  And it is quite simple.  I bet you just dying to know.  Right?….Right? Ok, so here it goes.  The key to understanding love and what it is about, is to understand Jesus.  To understand Jesus you must understand the will of God.  To understand the will of God you must love.

John 15: 12 This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you.  The coming of the Lord is on our doorstep.  When Love rings the doorbell, are you going to answer with love or with your own system?
