On Love

I could go on and on and on and on and on…

And I will.

Two things:

Romans 8:38-39

38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

That sure says an awful lot. Not being discommunicated from the church, family, friends, mistakes, past, current, or future situations… I could go on and on. Supernatural: way bigger than my conditional love. Good thing to strive for.

A prayer I say for myself and others:

Ephesians 3:17-19

17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge —that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Huge Love. God is love. This is the fullness of God. Not just to the “holy”. He loves the world. Maybe we should try to love them like that? Each other? Ourselves?

That’s one goal I’m working on. It is a step by step process.

  1. Loving ourselves is the first step to being able to truly love others. Unless we can love ourselves as God loves us (unconditionally), we can’t love others the same way. Knowing that God finds us worthy of love should be evidence enough that we should follow His lead and do the same. I hope that made sense 🙂
