Love takes on many forms when you talk about it because so many have a different idea of what REAL LOVE really is.
1 Cor. 13:1-3, Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
The school of “what love really is” has come for many through the TV, movies, music, but not from the MASTER OF LOVE – Jesus!
The world’s concept of love is really what is termed, LIKE!
We LOVE cheesecake (when you eat too much and it makes you sick…you now hate cheesecake).
We LOVE shoes (come on ladies).
We LOVE puppies (until they poop all over your floor and choose the shoes you love).
We LOVE sports (until the team so stinks we finally hate them).
I fell in LOVE.
I fell out of LOVE.
LOVE HAS BECOME A CLICHÉ, NOT A REALITE’ (Spencerism)
Can you imagine if God had the fickle, self-absorbed love of humanity as His measuring stick?
WE HAVE STARTED “LOVING” THINGS…AND STOPPED LOVING PEOPLE.
The reason? Because things cannot hurt us! They are distant and controllable.
REAL LOVE IS NOT THINGS.
We will finish this tomorrow……
