Choosing Love over love
A very common challenge in the world today is to focus on our love instead of His Love. His Love is you focusing on the person next to you and your neighbor – and we are All neighbors. Focusing on our own wants or loves like our love for respect, position or money is what religious people do, spiritual people focus instead on His Love and its Completeness that He offers by His Free Gift of Love beyond belief!
What Jesus showed us by choosing to take the cross is that Love Is The Choice of The Spirit Life!
“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” – John 15:12-13
What does Love over love look like?
1)It looks like choosing the needs of others over the desires of me.
2)It looks like caring for others even though it cost me – sometimes life itself.
3)It looks like Being the source of Hope and Light for others – despite how it looks.
4)It looks like Loving the least of these with His Love which often goes directly against societal and common sense thinking. Remember if common sense was the same as God sense Jesus Never would have gone to the cross.
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” – John 14:6-7
Jesus is Not “The Way” because He came to start a new religion, Jesus Is “The” Only “Way” because Only Love heals and Only Love like His takes our eyes off self desire and focuses it on others needs.
All too often we see the verse above in John 15 and think it means giving our physical life up by jumping on a grenade. I believe that an even deeper meaning is to give up our desires and wants by choosing Love over love.
“Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.” – Romans 13:8
