LOVE

Feb 2014    

Love

Jesus demonstrated God’s love;
By leaving His home above;
Exchanging His sovereignty;
For a life of humility;
To serve and forgive,
And to die that we might live.

Love is more than empty speech,
Lofty ideals that we teach;
More than faith and prophecy;
Or understanding mystery;
More than the costly price,
Of a martyr’s sacrifice.

Love is not an outward show,
Of how we feel or what we know.
It is a firm unfailing desire;
To serve, nourish and inspire
Those who may cause us pain,
With no thought of personal gain.

Love is thought, word and deed;
Touching lives of those in need.
It is not a natural inclination,
Or a shallow fleeting emotion;
But a virtue we can only afford,
As a gift from a loving God.

“Though I speak with tongues of men and of angels… And though I have the gift of prophecy, And understand all mysteries and knowledge, And though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains…

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, And though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing… And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13 (NKJV)
