Every time we find ourselves harboring hatred, bitterness, and anger, remember that these things are not of God. God's love can change our heart, and you too can love like He loves. Empty yourself in God's love today. Be willing to release your hatred, bitterness, and anger into God's presence.
In many ways, love has lost meaning in this modern world. We need to remind ourselves of the true definition of love. Where did our parents and grandparents get their definition of love? The pure, sincere love our parent's and grandparents knew was learned from God's word. What is God's definition of love, and from where did it come? John tells us very plainly in the scripture I John 4:7-8, "Love is of God."
Without God in our lives, we have no love. Many of us know people who are unsaved, yet they seem to have love in them. We often mistake affection, infatuation, and the lust of our flesh for true love, but my friend, make no mistake about it: until you have received Jesus Christ as your Savior, you cannot know true love. God's love can make the most loving person you know more loving, for he or she will experience a new love that he or she has never known before. Inviting Jesus into a rocky marriage that has fallen apart a new love to stand on. Someone who has received Go's love into his or her heart through Jesus Christ can love people he or she never thought possible.
This is because true love is found only in Jesus. From my heart to yours, my prayer is; through his true love, you can experience new heights of peace and contentment that you never thought existed.
Second Corinthians 13:11 reminds us of a lovely farewell from Paul. He says, "Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you." Let's get back to the true meaning of love and live in God's peace.
