Look inside. Do you know you are loved? Are you loved for who you are or does another want something from you? Love is more than an emotion, it’s a choice and mutual commitment. Are you loved or used?
Love is supernatural. Love only comes from God, for God is love ( I John 4). Love from God does what? It makes you feel complete, competent, and worthy! Is this how your love makes another feel?
God’s love makes you feel like giving to others of yourself and whatever God wants you to share. Love gives just because it is love and seeks nothing in return. The reason most people don’t know how to love is because anytime another loves they think they have to return the good deed or gift. The best pic of love is the cross! If Jesus is within then so love Him that you can’t help but love others.
Love from God will always energize you. Love is patient, love is forgiving: and love: “always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres (I Cor 13:7).”
See you in worship! Happy St. Valentine’s Day. Pastor John
