I am here with a new article to educate, motivate, builds, mend & heal relationships/ marriages through the word of God. It tends to bring to reality God’s perception about ‘LOVE’ with deep expose from the scriptures to illuminate the hidden abilities deposited in us by God to express love.
Now, let’s look at what love is all about. What is LOVE?
The generally accepted definition of love according to contemporary dictionary is defined as an intense feeling of affection and care towards another. It is also defined as true affection for God & man; Agape.
The word ‘Agape ‘is a creek word which refers to Love; ‘the love of God for mankind. It is the highest form of love.
1 Corinthians 13:13 says ‘And now these three remain; faith, hope & love. But, the greatest of these is love.’
Love plays a central role in life. Love is God and God is love. ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16, ESV)’
From the foregoing: I hereby defined Love as a state of being simple towards another; it is state of an unconditional feeling within a man towards another. Love is:
- Patient and not by force.
- Kind and not envious.
- Not proud or rude.
- Keeps no record of wrong doings.
- It easily forgives and rejoices in the truth.
Someone asked if it is a sin to fall in Love & confess a sin to someone you Love while chatting with me online on the 31st may, 2018.
My response was NO.
Then he said, is it bad to confess to someone you loved that you were planning to cheat on her and ask for forgiveness?
My response was still NO.
He said, I did confess to her and now she hates me and never want to see me again.
I counseled him briefly according to the scriptures in James 5:16 and 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, encouraged him to be patient with the lady and also, pray for her.
More so, he sent the lady’s contact to me and I was able to speak with her.
Morals: love is a state of being simple. It forgives and doesn’t hold grudges.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ‘4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.’
Finally, express love by being simple towards another. Love unconditionally; do not hold back. Every human being on earth has a nature to love. It is the Godly part deposited in a man’s heart.
Love tips for today: #Love is expressing simplicity towards another. Show love to someone today.
