I Want To Know What Love Is.....

“I want to know what love is…..” this was the song that came on my jazz station and I hummed along. My humming soon turned into a prayer. God show me what love is. That request, quickly turned into answers.
Love is sacrificial….even to its own wants. (Ephesians 5:1-2)
Love is obedient….even unto the point of death. (Philippians 2:8)
Love is patient…..giving chance to make right decisions over & over, while we’re alive.
Love is selfless…..placing others before it & taking no tally.
Love is pure…it doesn’t desire for harm to come to anyone. (John 3:16)
Love is honoring…...regardless of a title. (Romans 12:10, Romans 2:11)

Love is going to a cross, the most disgraceful kind of death there was, to hang from it. To look as you are mocked already having being beaten and still saying: ‘Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.’ God had already been and still is showing what love is. So while we may think It should come in the form of a human being, it will & it does as well, but let’s not forget to reciprocate that love to God a.k.a our first love. We’ve gotten so comfortable in His love, that we sometimes don’t reverence it like we should.
Prayer: Father, forgive us for taking your love for granted, but thank you for revealing this to us. For we know, those you love you correct. (Hebrews 12:6, Proverbs 3:12). Please open our eyes to the most common things that we maybe more aware of you. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray, amen!
