What's Love Got To Do With It?


"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends" (Jn.15:13).

If I gave you a piece of paper and pen and asked you to write down as many love songs that you could think of in 2 minutes, how many do you think you would come up with? Perhaps you will try... How do you know when someone really loves you? Is saying "I love you" enough, or is there something more? Songwriters have made a living writing love songs and movie makers continue to churn out those works we like to call "chick flicks...." Words and a good story might be enough to describe the superficial emotion that we call "falling in love." But true and deep love can't nearly be described with words, no matter how hard we might try. Love is an action word... God showed His love for us in the sending of Jesus. Jesus showed His love by His willingness to carry the sorrows and sins of the people who were abusing Him, to heal His abusers with His own wounds, and bear the sins of the world. Jesus lived out what it means to love. Though we are not asked to do this, we are told to put our words of love into action. I will continue to end each of my devotionals with the word love... I hope with all my heart that it is more than just a word, but a commitment to action... What's love got to do with it? Everything!

Have a wonderful day... Do good and give God the glory... Love mark Phil.4:11
