21st Century Love

Love is just a word we bump into in today's world.

Love is equated to greetings.

What is love?

Friends liking each other’s status, xoxo as part of an SMS conversation

A casual I love u too is today's kind of love.

Little thought, little effort.

It is love without deeds.

Love that is like a resounding gong.

Empty and without sincerity.

We love each other, yet we watch our friends die in misery.

The same people who love you will be the first to deny you before Pontius Pilate.

We are lovers by words, yet Iscariots at heart.

Where is the love? How do we lose sight of the greatest of them all?

But what is love?

Is it the kisses, the feelings?

Is it a trend? A band wagon that I must join?

Certainly not!

God is love.

Love is kind, patient, does not envy or boast, love is not proud.

It is not rude, self-seeking or easily angered.

It does not keep a record of wrongs or delight in evil but rejoices in truth.

Love always protects, trusts, perseveres, and hopes.

Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13

Warren Barfield, in his song "Love is not a fight", said that love is a house; we enter in and commit to never leave. Love is peace in the midst of a war.

When the Teacher wrote on the ground that sins of the Adulterous woman were forgiven, that was love.

When Mary poured perfume on Jesus feet and wiped them with her hair, that was immense love.

When, arms wide open, He was nailed on the cross, when He took the pain for me. What greater love than this!

God is love. It’s about time love became real and practical.

It is about time that love went beyond words, beyond us.

I do not want the Facebook kind of love, I want to love as God intended.

For without love, I am empty of God.

Hers's to loving as Christ loved the church.
