L.O.V.E. These are four VERY powerful letters when they are put together in this order to create this word. Because this is a VERY powerful word!
Let’s look at this word from a different context, not from the world’s definition but from the truths of God.
“But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness” -Psalm 86:15
“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you with his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” -Zephaniah 3:17
“How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.” -Psalm 36:7
“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.” -Psalm 107:1
“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:8
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.” -1 John 4:7
“For God so loved the world that he gave his own son, that whoever believes in him will not perish but will have eternal life.” -John 3:16
This list could go on and on without ending because God’s love for us goes on and on without end. There are no hidden agendas with God’s love. His love is the purest, strongest, unconditional love.
