When we watch TV or go to the movies we get all sorts of images thrown at us telling us what real love is. Some see it as attraction, lust, sex or other things. The Bible tells us what real love is.
In 1 John 4:9-10 it says, “God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins”.
Real love is not so much a feeling or an attraction, but something that sacrifices and longs for a true and deep relationship. It is something that looks to the long term best of the other.
Just like what God did for us in sending Jesus to die to take away our sins. It was sacrificial, for our long term eternal best and all about relationship with you and I. To me that is real love!
I pray that you will know the love God has for you today.
