3 Biblical Truth About Love




There’s no doubt that love is one of the most powerful emotions we experience in life. It can make us happy, euphoric, and fulfilled, and it can be excruciating and heart-wrenching. So what is love? Christians have a unique perspective on this topic based on their belief in God and His love for them. In this post, we’ll explore some of the different aspects of love according to Christianity. We’ll also look at how Christians are called to love others. Whether or not you’re Christian, love is essential to your well-being. Hopefully, this post will offer some helpful insights into the truth about love.


The First Truth:

Love is not a feeling: One of the most important things to understand about love is that it’s not just a feeling. While we often talk about “falling in love,” love is more than an emotion. In fact, according to the Bible, love is primarily a decision. It’s an intentional choice to put someone else’s needs above your own, regardless of how you feel; this doesn’t mean that love is never emotional - of course, it can be! - but feelings are not the primary driving force behind love. Instead, it’s a decision to serve and sacrifice for someone else.


 

The Second Truth:

Genuine love shows action, not just words. Love is more than just a feeling; it’s also more than just words. So often say that we love someone, but our actions don’t reflect that. We might make promises we never keep or say things we don’t mean. But genuine love always leads to action. If you genuinely love someone. When we show that our love for others is accurate, God will see it. We can stand boldly before him, knowing how much joy this brings us in obeying his word and loving those around us with no room left for pride or self-love. We love each other because he first loved us (1 John ). Genuine love is the cycle of love we are called to as Christians - to love others because God has loved us. It’s not always easy, but it’s worth it!

The pandemic reveals some very real selfishness. I remember watching in another state where someone wanted the lockdown to end so she could do her hair. I wondered if her beauty was more important than another person’s life, and I realized if I had a conversation with that person, she probably would say no. She doesn’t want anyone to die; I want my hair done, and since we didn’t have a vaccine, I wonder if she realized that that life could be hers. The pandemic reveals some high levels of selfishness in the world today. People are not thinking about others; they want what they want when they want it.


 

The Final Truth

Loving others helps us to connect with God. If we want to know what pleases God, we look to his Son. God is not overly pleased when we try to live without sin, as much as when we love others; This is what Jesus means when he says love covers all wrongs. 1 John 3:20 tells us, “Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything.” Loving others is more important than sin. No matter how much we may have wronged someone, if our intentions were good, they will overlook any shortcoming on behalf of this gesture-a sign that you care about them as a person with their set worthiness and value—loving Someone Else Trump Sin Any Day!

It’s a decision to put someone else’s needs above your own, regardless of how you feel. It’s an intentional choice to serve and sacrifice for someone else.
