From the Pastor’s Heart
“The Look of Love”
Words like “The Look of Love” may sound strange to you, but please let me explain. It is easy for us to throw the word “love” around but do we really know what it means or what it looks like, in reality or in action? 1st Corinthians 13 (NKJV & The Message Bible) tells us what LOVE, will really looks like. . .
LOVE suffers LONG and is kind
LOVE does not ENVY (wants what others have, position, possessions, or partner)
LOVE does not PARADE itself (“strut” The Message Bible)
LOVE is not PUFFED UP (have a “swelled head”)
LOVE does not behave RUDELY
LOVE does not seek its OWN WAY, does not KEEP SCORE of the sins or offenses
LOVE rejoices in the truth (versus “hearsay of others”)
LOVE PUTS UP with anything, always looks for THE BEST (in others) NEVER FAILS!
Hopefully, our love for one another LOOKS like the above definition from GOD’s WORD. I John 4:7-8
“Beloved, let us love one another. . .” I John 4:7-8
Sincerely In The Love of Christ,
