I hear so many people say there is no God, yet I know what He’s done in me! How do I convince others who refuse to believe? I can’t. But what I can do is love. Not with my love, but with God’s love. That love is unconditional, unmoving and uncompromising. That love doesn’t change when circumstances change. It takes a slap in the face, smiles and turns the other cheek. It turns a wrong into a right, a curse into a blessing.
It doesn’t get frustrated when others don’t listen. Love simply continues to love just as steady as the waves keep lapping against the shore. It’s factual to it’s core and continuous in it’s nature.
Human love comes and goes based on feelings and emotions, it’s fickle at best and unreliable in the end. It says, “I’ll continue as long as you make me feel good, but the minute you stop, I stop!” It’s the main cause of most divorce, it’s immature in nature and self-centered at it’s core. It leaves broken and ruined lives in it’s wake and division comes as a result of it.
I John 4:7-12 ERV says it best:
“Dear friends, we should love each other, because love comes from God. Everyone who loves has become God’s child. And so everyone who loves knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love to us: He sent his only Son into the world to give us life through him. True love is God’s love for us, not our love for God. He sent his Son as the way to take away our sins.
“That is how much God loved us, dear friends! So we also must love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us. If we love each other, God’s love has reached its goal—it is made perfect in us.”
