Head First: Love is...

Love is...

...patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,

it keeps no record of wrongs...(1 Cor. 13:4-5)


hmmm...

Then what about Bon Jovi? All their records are just wrong.

Wouldn't it be something if God was love? That would be really good news!

Y'know bruced, I was going to glibly respond to your comment with "Now there's an idea I can get behind." But just before I hit the publish button, it occurred to me how difficult that is to get my head around sometimes. The One who knows my very thoughts, who counts the hairs on my head (although that gets easier every day), who sees the sparrow fall, does not remember my sin. He looks at me and sees Christ's blood.

These days, I understand better what a huge move that is on His part.

Zeke,

I still air-guitar to "Dead or Alive."

Zeke/Dorsey..

"You give love a bad name".
So you better start "Livin on a prayer". Because your love is like "Bad Medicine"

BTW: Does Johnny still work on the docks?

I was rude today but not in my heart language and by accident. Does that count?

Perhaps our confusion exists because we have been deluged with so many variations on the theme, particularly by people who "name the name" we have lost sight of the fundamental expression of love--JC Himself. He is love "in the flesh" and provides us with more than a model/example, etc. Sadly, I confess that what love is, I ain't!!!
The LORD has given me many opprotunities to allow Him to love through me but I keep getting in the way (not The Way) so the purity is muddied and lost in transmission.
"Lord, lay not this sin to (my) charge!)
