Love has become one of the most abused words in America. It seems to mean a lot of things to a lot of people–sex, pride, ceremony, donuts, but rarely does it resemble the human picture God gave us for love–Jesus, whose name means “God saves.”
How? Poor life, misunderstanding, hunger, humility, some blazing sermons a few resurrections and then the most brutal execution in the history of the universe.
Read that again and think about what it means–Love.
Then He rises from the dead.
Love is well and thoroughly defined by Jesus but then he lets Paul, James and John define it as well.
Wanna know if you really love?
Ask yourself if you would endure what Jesus endured for someone.
Then for the love of God, protect that person from the dogs–coyotes–wolves of this world.
Because if you won’t it’s not love.
