Love Is Practical
If love were not practical and met no needs, it would be useless. Love meets needs. It is not just a feeling. It is a choice. It seeks a way to meet needs, and with God*s help can succeed. Our greatest need is for forgiveness of sin and eternal life. The greatest love meets that need.
John 3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
When that greatest love has provided for us forgiveness and eternal life that love is also shed abroad in our hearts, and will cause us to love God and others.
Romans 5:5: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Matthew 22:36: Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
We need to find ways to love God and others. We should start small and then our love can grow and abound.
Luke 19:17: And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
2 Thessalonians 1:3: We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;
