True Love

The great evangelist Billy Graham once said that, “God proved his love on the cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, “I love you.” Today the word love does not carry with it the same meaning as it does in the Greek language. In fact, there are multiple words that describe love in this Grecian language. There is Phileo which speaks of a brotherly or sisterly love, then there is Eros which speaks of love on the physical level specifically between a husband and wife in a marital relationship, and then we have the word Agapao or Agape which speaks of a sacrificial love. This is the kind of love that was shown for us on the cross. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. In the English language we sometimes use the word love interchangeably. We might say, “I love my wife, and in the next sentence say that I really love Coffee.” Let me share a story. A young man spent an entire evening telling a girl how much he loved her. He said that he could not live without her; that he would go to the ends of the earth for her, go through fire for her, and even die for her. However, on leaving, he said, “I’ll see you tomorrow night if it doesn’t rain.” How often we say we love God yet deny it by our actions. What does the bible teach us about love? How should we show love to others according to the scriptures? 1 Cor 13:4 says, " Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;" If we want to know love then we need to go to the source of that love Jesus Christ. If we want to show that kind of love to others then we need to do it with the help of God. Love God always, and then love others the way that He loves you!
