Love-Wednesdays for women

To Inspire and Encourage 

The Greatest of These is Love

What makes love so amazing? For starters, it is what motivated the Father to send His only Son to die for us. Without love, there would have been nredemption for mankind. Not only would we be without love, but without the redemption that was precipitated by love, there would also be no faith, and no hope. You see, nothing else matters, without love. It is foundational for every other good thing in our lives.

There are many different kinds of love:
Husband/wife Love
Relationship love
Parents to Kids love
Family love
Friendship Love

I always tell my friends i love them.
Can you define love?
Some say it is romance. Some say it is bliss. It is one of those words in our English language that have so many meanings to choose from. 
Dictionary.com defines it as:
"A profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.
A feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend"
Though those definitions are nice…I can’t help but realize that these are mere emotions or feelings….but isn’t love something more real?

What love is really like

To be honest with you, I have yet to find any better definition of what love TRULY is than the below verses“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.”  (1 John 3:16)
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”  (Romans 5:8)
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”  (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

Love is more than emotions

Love is so much more beautiful than momentary bliss. It is so much more powerful than romantic passion. There is not a word to describe what love truly is.
All I can say is that Jesus loves you, and it is not the kind of love the world knows.
This is how I know what love is: Though I am a nobody, Jesus Christ, my King, died for me. Not because of acts that deserve such a sacrifice, no, on the contrary; while I was still a sinner.
I pray that you can find rest and peace in Jesus and in his love (Matthew 11:28-30).

  1. Jesus dying on the cross definitely symbolizes the highest kind of love. I think there are many forms, like you said, but none are as precious as that...

  2. That last quote 'Love is patient...love is kind' is one of my favourites. You are so right, love is the greatest of all.
