We are in the middle of a sermon series on God's amazing love and in a couple weeks we will be looking at the Scripture on "God is love". It seems so simple, doesn't it?
God is love. Spend time in God's presence and we will know how to love.
However, the world has a way of getting in between us and God...love.
And before we know it, love is not something on our heart or mind.
It can be a big thing, it can be a little thing, it can be a little thing that we make a big thing.
I don't know what it is for you. I don't know what it will be for me tomorrow or the day after.
Yet, I know God says, spend time with me and you will love because I love you.
It doesn't say, we will love because everything is going right.
It doesn't say, we will love because everyone is nice.
It doesn't say, we will love because we have gotten all the sleep and fruit and vegetables we need.
It doesn't say, we will love because everyone we are frustrated with "gets a brain and figures out what an idiot they have been".
You get my point.
We love because God first loved us. We love when we abide in God.
So how we love has little to do with our state of mind or heart or the world's state. It has everything to do with our state of spending time with the Lord.
So, on my list of things to do this week. I have added, spend time with God.
I hope you notice.
