I started out last week‘s Blog quoting a song by Cool and the Gang. So why not start this week out by quoting a Beatles favorite?
ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE!
Now most of you are probably humming the, “DA DA DA DA DA’s,” In your heads right now. It is a very well-known song and popular for very good reason. We all want to be loved!
Problem is the kind of love the Beatles are selling, or our world is offering, is not the kind of love we need!
Love really is all we need! But this statement has left out one vital word making it TRUTH!
GOD’S LOVE REALLY IS ALL WE NEED!
As we conclude this month of LOVEuary, let’s focus on the love that truly is all we need.
We began this month with the famous love passage, I Corinthians 13.
While this passage is a great Standard of LOVE, and the goal that we should all strive to achieve, we fall short.
We have good days and bad days. We have successful days and unsuccessful days. We have driven days and lazy days. We also have a God who never has any of these!
The reason that GOD’S LOVE IS REALLY ALL WE NEED, is He embodies the LOVE of I Corinthians today, tomorrow, yesterday and forever!
GOD’S LOVE TRULY NEVER FAILS AND NEVER ENDS!
“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. LOVE NEVER ENDS.”
I Corinthians 13:4
God‘s love is all this over you and more. He loves you when you are patient and when you are not. He loves you when you are kind and when you are not. He loves you when you are humble or jealous or boastful. He loves you when you are arrogant or when you are rude or when you are not. God does not insist on His own way but He desires for you to choose Him! God loves you when you are irritable or in a good mood. God loves you when you are resentful or when you are thankful. He loves you when you rejoice with others and when you do not!
God knows that we are not perfect and He never withholds His Love from us!
HIS LOVE TRULY NEVER ENDS!
“So now faith, hope and LOVE abide, these three, but the greatest of these is LOVE!”
I Corinthians 13:13
GOD’S LOVE TRULY IS ALL WE NEED!
God loves you my friends! It is not based on anything that you do, it is based solely on what He has done for you!
GOD IS LOVE!
Speak Truth Love
