WHAT IS LOVE, REALLY???

What is LOVE really???

We have often heard the expression, "I love you". But what does one mean when they say I love you? Given that the english word "love" has several meanings; at least four. To compound matters, we often hear of someone who "falls in love" and at some time later, they "fall out of love". Now what is that all about.

I can remember an occasion in my teenage years, I thought I was in love with my schoolmate. She was on my mind constantly. She subsequently moved to another state, New York. Two years later while in the Air Force, I heard that the boxing team was going to NY for a boxing tournament. Would you believe it, in the same town where she was living.

I thought this had to made in Heaven until I remembered I didn't like boxing. But I joined the boxing team anyway; I thought I was still in love. When the team arrived in NY I couldn't wait to look her up. I went to her house with great anticipation...I rang the doorbell...my heart racing..

She came to the door, and when our eyes met, I knew immediately the flame had died. What happen? Where did all that love go?

Well, looking back over many years of reading, researching and maturing, I
have concluded that our parents gave us the wrong scoop or didn't even have the scoop themselves. I've learned that the best way to know who we are and how we tick, we consult the One who created us. When my computer goes down I consult the manufacturer or a reliable proxy.

Do you see what I see?

The Bible teaches that Love is of God. True Love comes from God. It is unconditional Love. Love is the power that God gives one in order relate to others in a godly way. A way that lines up with His will or way. It is not a love based on feelings. Feelings are often unpredictable and subject to many variables. Unconditional Love does not seek something in return.
LOVE is a commitment and is operative no matter what conditions may change.

So what happened in New York. NOTHING...the conditions that caused me to respond to my schoolmate when we were in school together had simply changed and were not present in New York.

ARE YOU IN LOVE?
