What is love?

We love because He first loved us.  Can we love if we do not know who “He” is?  What is love?  There can be no definition of love without an example of love.  The word love is meaningless if there is no standard by which to measure the word.  If we evolved love is a meaningless empty word.  If we were created by a Creator then all the love that was involved in the creating is available to us from our Creator just as an artist pours every ounce of his being and his love into his masterpiece.  Love is just a word.  Jesus is “The Word”.  Love apart from Christ is meaningless.

Christ made the language of God a knowable language to all tongues and nations, so that His children would hear His voice and know Him.  Love is not only words it is also action.  He speaks love and love speaks of the act of sacrifice.  If you are to know God and hear Him, then all you have to do is listen to the message of the cross.  It may sound like foolishness to those who are perishing, but to those who are being saved it is the power of God.  God’s voice is powerful and can be clearly seen and understood by those who belong to Him.  Listen and believe.  Christ crucified.  Christ buried.  Christ arose.  Love is that simple.

About lifevine

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
