My love

Is my love like a red, red rose? The person of my dreams? My lifelong companion? Can it be compared to all these things or is it something better? Is there anything better than these things? I fell in love with another human being more than 44 years ago and nothing has changed that love. Love is forever else it isn’t real love at all. Love is much more than that

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13)

Then I found a love more precious…………..

Real love is found in Jesus Christ the Saviour of the world. What do I mean by that? Because of Jesus’ sacrifice all who believe in him can be saved. All of mankind is separated from God because of sin and no-one through their own effort can change that. If we commit a crime we end up in jail, we have to pay the penalty so justice  is served. Jesus has paid the penalty for all our sins because we were helpless to do so. All we have to do is repent (turn away from) of our sins and let Jesus be our Saviour. In doing so we can restore our relationship with our Creator God and enjoy everlasting life in heaven.

The choice is ours

6 Seek the Lord while he may be found;
    call on him while he is near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways
    and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
    and to our God, for he will freely pardon. (Isaiah 55)
