LOVE… 

This four-letter word is simple yet complex. It has many different meanings and implications. It can rule your life both positively and negatively. The simplicity of the word and its true meaning is something I am seeking coupled with its application. God, the Creator of our universe, is the definitive definition and the greatest example of the word, love, in its truest meaning. In fact, in the Bible, the first half of first John chapter 4 talks about love and the love of God. John, very simply, but profoundly, says the following in         1 John 4:8: “The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love”. In essence, GOD is love and love is GOD.

The world and ultimately Satan has changed this word, love, to mean so much more. Simply because, Satan is the opposite of love. Chew on that for a bit. What would be the opposite of love…? HATE.

As we dig in and look at the many different “loves” out there, we will come to the final and true meaning of the word. Moreover, we will understand the true meaning of love as it was intended from the beginning of time by our Daddy, God the Father. Walk with me on this exciting journey, as we discover the truths and the lies about love. Become equipped to be “covered in love” as Colossians 3 tells us to do and “love because He first loved us” as we are told God does in 1 John 4:16. In the end, my prayer is that you and I will see love through God’s eyes and not only know what love is but know WHO love is…
