What is love?

What is love?

Is love sacrifice?  Jesus is love!  He was a living sacrifice.  The word says he came to not condem the world!  The word condem means to judge! But that through Him we might be saved!  Saved mean to be made whole !   Or protected from harm! 

Love is not boastful!  Not envious. Not self seeking.  Not rude.  Not desiring evil for others.  Not covetous.   Love suffers long.  Then in the end of that text He writes love it never fails! (1 Cor 13)

I sometime look at myself and wow I don't have that kind of love.  

I have learned that love is not about what I want!  It's about loving others even when they are not who I want them to be!

To Love even if the condition is bad!  To love even when they hate you! To love even when they pray you lose everything! To love even when they turn others against you.  To love even when they want death for you. To love even if the hatred in their hearts is full of vengeance.  

Man to love under bad condition and not lose sight of love.  It is so hard and painful and sometime defeating! To not be over come by what is fed to you! 

 When Jesus hung on the cross that was his view of the bad condition of people's heart he saw and felt.  He even heard them chant Kill Him! 

The scriptures says He never reviled back.  He just stayed quiet.  Probably praying for them. Forgiving them any way regardless of how they were! Loving them with no expectation!  He couldn't change who He was!  He could not, not  be the Son of God!  

If I truly love!  I have to love without expectation! Without requirements. What I give has to be free without strings attached!  

Sometimes conflict comes because what is expected from others isn't met.  Then we judge and complain and slander because what the other person is doing isn't what we want them to do!  So we feel we have a right to judge. As if we are the Maker!  The truth is we are nobody to look at others. 

The truth is we are all failures short of the glory of God! Everyone is a sinner! Everyone!

  The only place our eyes should be on is Him. The maker and finisher of your faith!  Paul say I don't even judge myself!  There is one who knows my wounds, know my weaknesses, know me personally and he will judge me. 

When he judges us it's not if we were right. Good or bad.  But did we know Him?  Did we follow Him?  Did we let Him love us? 

Jesus died not with demands or requirements or expectation of you better or I will judge you!  He died out of love in hope out of unconditional passion for you ! So that you would willingly come and part take of His love!  He never throws your past in your face! Or requires an unreasonable standard!  He just wants us to follow Him.  

As we journey with Him. 

Have you ever been around someone so much you gestures, your wording, and even your slang becomes reflective of who you have been around!  

I guess sooner than later as we fellowship and follow and learn about His wonderful goodness it will become a part of us.   

Even Peter when he was denying Christ the girl said, " you even sound like one of them." See Jesus was rubbing off on Peter.   He even sounded like Jesus in the way He spoke and even in the denial.  Jesus love and presence and words were something Peter unknowingly was molding into his Masters Son!

His love leads us unto repentance. Nothing else leads people to turn around.


With no judgement. With no hatred.  With no expectation.  

Jesus just loves you.  I know because He has loved me personally even in my worst condition!  

As I follow this loving, lovely savior, and my heart gets tender and my gestures and words become who I am.  I'm honored and thankful that He gave everything He is! For some as broken and ugly as I was! 

Even in my worst condition He Wanted And Loved Me!  

I guess for me to know what love is?  I have to be love first by the one who is Love .  Jesus the savior and lover of you soul!

That's where I learn what true love is with Him!
