Love Is

Love Is by David Brandon

"By this all men will know you are my disciples, if you have love one for another." John 13:35

If someone asked you to finish this statement, "Love is..." how would you answer?

Some might say, "Love is running with my dog." "Love is riding a motorcycle." Or "Love is playing sports."

You might say, "Love is caring for your family." When I met my wife, Gloria, it was easy to fall in love with her and I love her more every day. At the birth of my son, Joshua I loved him immediately, because he was a gift from God.

Love is God giving His Son so we may have eternal life and avoid Hell. When I gave my life to Jesus, He forgave me of my sins and filled me with the Holy Spirit. I realized a deep sense of His love for me and I naturally loved Him back.

Love is Christians showing that Jesus is real inside and outside the Church. Many people today need to be loved by Jesus. Their lifestyle may be different from ours but they need Jesus. People without Christ need to see Him in us by our actions.

The Bible says, "Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails;" 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Love is not a feeling but a decision to take action.

Decide today to:

 Love God by getting alone with Him daily
 Love your neighbor by caring for them
 Pray for the unlovable and love them
 Do an act of kindness for someone that wouldn't expect it from you.
 Pray for Evangelists and Missionaries
 Give financially so that the love of the Jesus is carried around the world

On The Go has many fine men and women who are taking the love of Jesus around the world. You can join them with your prayers and financial giving.

Love is sharing with everyone we meet the Good News that "Jesus loves them".
