Love Wins

LOVE WINS.

Yes, I agree but only if you and I have the same idea of what love actually is.

My source of truth is the Bible and as I was reading it over this past week while in Guatemala, I was reminded once again about love.

2 John 1:6 (ESV) tells us in no uncertain terms what love is:

“And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it.”

Love is obedience to our Creator. It isn’t an emotion, which may wax and wane.

It is a commitment to someone, regardless of other circumstances.

It is a Son dying on a cross for the sins of a people who neither knew nor loved him,

simply because the Father told him to do so.

This is love that triumphs.

This is love that wins.
