Love

5 11 2007

I am doing a study on love right now and I am amazed at the depth of the definition of love and more importantly what it is.  I think everyone know I COR 13, but I have amazed at what I have found out about love such as

  • Pray for your enemies
  • Love is not proud
  • Love can not be divided into two places (in other words, what are you serving?)
  • Love your neighbor as yourself
  • Love God with ALL (I have been told all is all) your heart
  • Do good to your enemies
  • Lend to your enemies and expect nothing in return
  • Love the church
  • Love is full of truth
  • If I serve, worship, fellowship etc without love I profit nothing

One last thing and this really hit me:

“Let all you do be done in love”

God is deepening me – he is giving me a heart for people who bug me, who have done me wrong.

I think of something Ephesians says – I just got done studying this verse with my life group, “…showing tolerance for one another in love.”  Do I do this?  I fall a lot.  I want to compare myself to others but God’s standard humbles me and gets me on my face to seek him.
