Real Love Comes from God
Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. (Romans 13:10 KJV)
The love of God has many dimensions and applications.
It is never exhausted or wanes.
It has been available since the beginning of time.
God’s love is perfect and is designed to treat others perfectly.
God’s love corrects and redirects, seeks to do good to one’s neighbor, it implores mankind to live in the image of God. If man truly loved all the people, as God so desires, doing so would end all relationship ills and troubles commonly found at work in this world.
The love of God is not naturally found residing in the heart of mankind. His love is supernatural in nature and can be found only in a personal relationship with God. Love for God always has His best interest at heart rather than leaning on man’s self-will.
Man’s natural love aligns with the nature of the god of this world. Having the love of God at work in his life places God first, others second, and himself last.
