WHAT IS LOVE?
It’s hard to put into words, isn’t it? Paul, one of the writers in the Bible, once wrote, “Love is patient, love is kind… It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
C.S. Lewis wrote, “Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken… To love is to be vulnerable.” Does that sound like just some emotion of physical act?
We, as Christians, believe there’s a lot more to love. Love is much deeper. We believe that we’re all made in the image of God. Thus, we love because God loves. And God’s love is extended to us without condition, and so we love each other unconditionally.
We believe that God’s greatest act of love was when God sent God’s son, Jesus, to walk among us, to teach us, and to show us with his own acts of sacrifice and suffering, what love is truly about.
“My dear children, let’s not just talk about love; let’s practice real love.” 1 John 3: 18
