“I awakened you under the apple tree, there where your mother conceived you, there where she who gave birth to you conceived you. Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is as strong as death, jealousy as cruel as the grave; the flash of it is a flash of fire, a flame of Yahweh Himself. Many waters cannot quench love, nor can the floods drown it. If a man would give for love all the wealth of his house, it would be utterly despised.” (Song of Solomon 8:5-7)
Love. Love is a precious commodity because it is so hard to find. Like a beautiful diamond in a sea of glass. It’s true worth cannot be measured in dollars. There are three kinds of love that people can experience in life. The most basic is physical love. Expressing love of your spouse in making love. Sex is not love. Sex is the expression of what is in the heart. Then there is brotherly love. Love towards your fellow-man. It is looking out for another person’s well-being. It is being a good Samaritan to others. It is loving your brothers and sisters in Christ. Finally, there is Agape Love, which is the love that God has at His very heart. This love transcends all other forms of love. Agape love is the most powerful force in the universe because it is the very foundation of the Kingdom of God.
The love of God is a force that no weapon can withstand. When a child of God can operate fully in God’s love, he or she is unstoppable to Satan. Perfect love–God’s love casts out fear. It overrides it. It shuts it down completely.
When we read the news headlines and see what is happening all over the world, we wonder what the heck is going on! It’s a world full of fear, hate and violence. What we have to remember is that God’s love flowing through His people can turn that tide. Beloved, I encourage you to ask God to let HIS love–the highest love–begin to flow through you today. It is the most precious commodity in the world..
This love is found only through Jesus Christ. He is the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one can see the Father except through Him. You can meet Jesus today by clicking on this link:
