God is Love

My life does not depend on whether or not I perform a bunch of good deeds in order to make God happy. The essence of who He is....is simply love.

No matter what the world does, thinks, acts or commands, without the expression of love....they have failed in their mission.  True love is not self seeking.  BUT, it is always seeking the greater good of others.  The purest most perfect form of love is God and His son Jesus fulfilled God's mission by dying to redeem mankind, not dying to kill mankind.  What happens if you die, gain the whole world and lose your soul?  No prophet can save you, no religious teacher is willing to take your place.  Our lives are but a little breath of passing air, yet God cares enough for you to create you and love you with all of you imperfections. Radical behavior is loving in a world full of hate and revenge.  Holiness is modeling your imperfect life after God's.....knowing you are imperfect, yet He still loves you perfectly.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.....I Corinthians 13:4-8
