The Way of Love
“Love is …”
(1 Corinthians 13:4, ESV)
The first passages speak of the importance of love but what is love. Without love we are nothing, gaining nothing from knowing God, and my life will be a noisy affair seeking the approval of others. Love is an overused and confused word. David Jeremiah tells of a story he heard, ‘I heard about a teenager who was asked what she thought love was and she answered, “Love is a feeling you feel when you feel that what you feel is a feeling you never felt before.”’1 From that definition how do you feel about love.
God is gracious to define the way of love and a life characterized by love. A question we all must consider. Are we ready to set aside how we feel about love and ourselves to learn the way of love from God?
