LISTEN NOW! Greg, John, and Pat discuss Got Love? Tired of being loved the way people say they are loving you. They discuss how previous generations were criticized for not expressing their love in words but only in deed. However, it appears that this generation has gone all the way to the opposite spectrum with accepting words and expressing words of love with very little to no demonstration of the love they profess to express. However, it’s not words that say I love you but actions. The question is: Got Love? Many are saying they love others but in essence they are just flattering them to get what they want to get from them. Love is a heart issue. The Bible says that out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks, Luke 6:45. They continue to discuss how love is viewed in the world compared to a biblical perspective of love. True love demands demonstration of the love one professes. Many in the church today are singing “love songs” to Jesus with no demonstration of that love in view of the 81% of Christians that are not reading their bible according to the George Barna and the Barna Group. Matthew 24: 12 tells us “ Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.” Love grows cold when one is focused on themselves and not on others. They continue to discuss what love is and what it is not according to the word of God in 1 Corinthians 13:4-13 “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor 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. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophecy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” As the day of the Lord returns draws closer we mustn’t forget the importance of walking and demonstrating love according to God’s word.
