The reason I go back revisiting many previous topics is because as long as the world go around many people will NOT get it. There will always be the same problems with different people experiencing them. No matter how much information is available, people will do exactly what they choose with no heed to the truth.
Many people are doing the unthinkable in order to be loved. People are seeking something they know NOTHING about. How can you receive something and know whether it is good or bad; if you know nothing about it?
In order to truly love someone you have to first know what love is and you must love yourself. People are continuously and feverishly without fail looking for love in all of the wrong ways, in all of the wrong places, and in all of the wrong people.
Below are a few things people will do in the name of what they perceive as love:
.People will forsake their children for love and allow harm to come to them, because they base their reality on how they feel about the person they are with…..They will kill, steal, and commit other heinous acts, because they accept anything to be in the life of the person they are with (ride or die)……They will tolerate physical, mental, verbal, and emotional abuse, because they want to hold on to their false sense of love……They will perform immoral sexual acts, because they are easily enticed and influenced by who they are with even if it means doing any nasty thing to please them…….They will engage in drugs and alcohol although they never thought to try it before, because they are trying to maintain a relationship or to fit in…….Many will join gangs or other types of groups to feel a sense of love and belonging……They will accept being treated any kind of negative way and completely overlook it due to feelings of their hearts…….Some will be cheated out of their possessions oftentimes losing everything, because they allowed their hearts to lead them blindly…..They will do things they are normally against or wouldn’t ever have done before, because they are blind by what they feel is love…..They will put up with excessive foolishness as long as they can say they have a man or woman. They think some man or woman is better than no man or woman at all. How sad is that??
I could honestly write out pages and pages of nonsense people will do in the name of what they THINK is love. However, I believe I wrote enough for you to understand what I mean. People willfully and foolishly go through pure hell in the name of what they perceive as love. They are constantly in and out of relationships seeking love yet are always ending up with the same results. Still, they don’t get it!
People are desperately seeking love when God is standing with His arms wide open ready to receive anyone who is willing to receive Him. If people would only give Him and His love a try. There is no greater love in the entire world. He won’t forsake us or leave us alone. No matter what we go through He is with us. His love is never ending and unconditional. There are no stipulations for receiving His love. It’s available to everyone all across the world. He loves us despite of and He wants us to love Him!
Read carefully, I repeat; there are no stipulations for His love. However, there are stipulations to how you must live your life; for it determines how you will spend eternity. He doesn’t give you a free pass because He loves you. He also chastises whom He loves. To make it to Heaven there is a particular way we must live and it’s outlined in the Word/Bible. Him loving us doesn’t mean we are exempt. Despite of His agape love we are STILL held accountable for how we choose to live.
No one can ever love us like Jesus the Son and God the Father. We can look high and low, but there is no one who can give agape love other than Jesus the Son and God the Father. People put ALL of their trust in their significant others who repeatedly let them down, but NONE in Jesus, someone who will NEVER let them down. These types of people will do anything to be with a person who doesn’t love them yet they turn from or don’t want to receive someone who loves unconditionally.
When a person falls in love with Jesus, the first thing He does is show you what love is and in doing that He teaches us to love ourselves. When a person love his or herself they WILL not allow any ole thing or person in their life. Seeing this change in you YES people will shun you, they will talk about you, and many times you will have to walk naturally alone. It’s okay, because spiritually Jesus is with you! People won’t understand the change in you. They are okay when you’re down and out, but when you get on the right track they either pretend not to see you or they hate what they see. Just know it’s NOT you, it’s the LACK of Jesus in them.
My recommendation is after you’ve tried everything else you want to try; try Jesus, He won’t leave you alone, talk about you, stab you in your back, tell lies on you, mistreat you, do you wrong or lead you wrong in any kind of way and He will always want what is best for you. He knows everything about you and knows you better than you know yourself. He doesn’t always give you what you want, but He will supply what you need! Allow Him into your life and discover who you REALLY are through Him!! There’s no love like His agape love!!
