HHLL’s message is to spread love around the world. It’s worth mentioning that we need to spread the right type of love. The example of the love we ought to have, see, and provide to ourselves and others has already been given to us. We have already seen that kind of love. We have given that love to ourselves and we proudly give it away to others. Perhaps we give it away too easily.
The type of love I am talking about happens every day. We witness that type of love in a smile to a passerby. When we greet each other, eat over a meal, and laugh together- we are expressing that type of love. More examples of this love includes:
1. Dedicating our time to help someone in need
2. Volunteering for a local charity
3. Relieving someone of their debt
4. Giving money to a stranger or friend so they can pay their bills
5. Buying groceries for a homeless person
6. Providing companionship to the sick and shut in
7. Washing clothes for someone who may be ill
8. Cleaning up for someone who is overwhelmed with the upkeep of their home
9. Taking care of children
10. Etc. and etc.
These are all good examples of serving, loving, caring, and sharing your time. Generally, any type of care you give is an expression of the love and understanding that you are capable of giving. Your way of expression of such love radiates from your soul.
Nevertheless, we all need a healing love; not just a love in general. Do you seek to be loved forever? Do you also seek to be healed forever? There is only one person who can heal us with an unending and healing love. Do you know the name of the person? The name of that person is Jesus. The following verse describes all about him.
John 3:16 NIV
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Jesus was God’s gift to mankind. The John 3:16 verse gives a simple explanation of God’s love for us. It shows how we- each and every one of us- can be saved from our life of troubles here on Earth. We are directed to do only one thing; which is to believe in Jesus Christ. He gives us a choice to believe in him. After all, he is the one who is our help; our server. He cared for us so much that he came to us in human form to love and die for us- on our behalf- to show us how awesome is his love. He came to show us that his love is never ending and that he wants us to be with him. He did not have to do that in order to prove anything but he did it to help us, in our current condition, so that we may clearly know him in order to be able to return to him fully knowing him and his personal sacrifice.
During God’s time here on Earth in the form of a person, who’s name we call Jesus, we were taught important messages of love and faith. We should listen to these words and follow them. Aren’t we humans all looking and searching for love? Pure, honest to goodness true love? We can only be satisfied with the healing and eternal love we receive, have received, and will receive from Jesus Christ when he returns in the kingdom of God.
Do not take God’s Love for granted. Receive his love and acknowledge it now while you have the chance.
Now what is love?
1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 NIV
“(4) Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. (5) It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. (6) Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. (7) It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
Do you know what God said about love?
Matthew 22: 37-39
“(37) Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ (38) This is the first and greatest commandment. (39) And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
So, you see, you already know love just as you already know God and his love for us which he provided through —> Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior! He is asking you to trust him by loving him in your heart with all of your power and with all the strength of your mind. If you take God’s love for granted, when he returns and you have not accepted and believed in Jesus Christ, who is God’s judge, it will be too late to change your mind. At that point, you cannot change your decision. Everyone, depending on your belief and decision, please be advised that you will be judged. God has made it very clear and simple as to what we are required to do upon his return to Earth.
I hope you choose to love Jesus. I am choosing to love Jesus. Please don’t take him for granted. Let’s appreciate him. He is loving you. Won’t you love him back?
