They say love is a universal language and with good reasons. Everyone desires to be loved. Our best manifests in an atmosphere of love. Knowing we are loved and cherished can give us the strength to get out of the most despairing of situations. There's nothing more powerful than love. Oh, what people would do for (and in the name of) love!
If you grew up in a love-neutral home (that is, one that is neither filled with love nor void of love) or are living a love-neutral life, there is a beauty in life that can only be seen through the lens of love.
If you grew up in a home filled with love or are surrounded by people who love you, then surely you know the beauty and power of love. Nevertheless, there is a love in whose presence every other love falters. The best love you received from others is nothing compared to it.
If you grew up in an abusive home or are surrounded by people who are actively seeking your hurt, then there is a love that not only drowns all the effects of hate but can also heal the wounds from the past.
This love is like nothing any human can offer. This love is endless, undying and unconditional.
It does not change with the changing seasons. It does not wane with the passage of time. Your actions and inactions cannot affect the availability and magnitude of this love. In a world filled with variables and uncertainty, this love is one of the few constants.
Surely, love this unique and special must be rare. Right? Yes! Only One person offers this kind of love.
Romans 8: 38 & 39 Yes, I am sure that nothing can separate us from God’s love—not death, life, angels, or ruling spirits. I am sure that nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers, nothing above us or nothing below us—nothing in the whole created world—will ever be able to separate us from the love God has shown us in Christ Jesus our Lord.
