Real love isnâ€™t "I love you if you love me", thatâ€™s worldly love.
Real love is "I love you no matter if you love me or not". Real
love just loves, and hopes the best for the other, and does whatever
they can for the happiness of someone else rather than themselves.
(Compare Ungodly Romantic Love)
Real love is putting someone or others before yourself and before your own needs. It isnâ€™t contingent or
conditional on whether others love you or not. You love and respect them so much you donâ€™t care if that love is
returned, you just want their needs to be meet and for them to be happy, and you will do whatever it takes within your
power to do so.
1 John 3: 16-18 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down
our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath this world's goods, and seeth his brother (or sister) have need, and shutteth
up his bowels of compassion from (them), how dwelleth the love of God in him? .... Let us not love in word, neither in
tongue; but in deed and in truth.
So we can't be concerned about how our actions look to others, we have to just do what necessary to help them. We
can;t consider ourself first, but them and their needs, and we can't wait to see if they respond or return our love. We
just do it because, of their need, whether we get a 'Thank You', a reward or any recognition whatsoever. . for as the
Lord said ...
Mathew 6:2-4 Therefore when thou doest thine alms (or loving acts), do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the
hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have
their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be
in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
Jesus loved us before we were able to return his love. He kept loving even when All turned their backs on Him.
"Herein is love, not that we loved Him but that he first loved us, and gave Himself for us' (1 John 4: 10) .... Jesus did it
first, He acted first, and extended his love first before waiting to see if we would respond. But even if we still donâ€™t
He still loves us and is patient with us, knowing that we will never find a love greater than His and more fulfilling
than His Love.
For No 'Greater love hath this that a man lay down his life for his friends'. (John 15: 13). This is the ultimate love,
the greatest love, REAL Sacrificial Love and there is no greater love than this, that a man give up his life for those he
loves. And Jesus did this for us, in payment for our sins. He didnâ€™t have to die for us, He didnâ€™t have to suffer
and be beaten and crucified for us, when He could have just stayed in the Heavenlies. He didnâ€™t have to come and
lay down His Life for us. But he did, because He loved us.
He had to give his life to cover our sins and reunite us with Him and all those that have learned what love truly is. He
loved us even while we were sinners, because even after we accept Him we are still sinners and He still loves us. Now
thatâ€™s love !!! ..... which means we can have the Grace to love others, because we are all in the same condition. We
can pass on His love because we are undeserving of it. â€¦ and we now only want to make others happy as well.
But its not us, its His love that makes the difference. Matter of fact, He is love, everything He does is love whether we
know it not. â€œGod is Loveâ€™â€¦ â€˜For God so loved the world that He gave His ONLY Begotten SON that
whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal Life.â€™ (John 3: 16)
Do you want His LOVE ? Receive Him into your heart today. He loves you !!! If you want, you can even do it now, by
saying in your heart or out loud ....
JESUS, Thank you for coming and dying for me. Please forgive me for all my sins, and I ask you to give me the
Eternal Life, you promised for all those that believe in you. Fill me with your Love and Spirit. In Jesus Name, I pray,
For if you pray this or anything similar in heart and mean it, Jesus will do it, Why, because Jesus loves you !!!
You know its true, everything I do, I do it for you (JESUS)
Look into your heart, and you will find, nothing left to hide
Take me as I am, take my life
I will give it all, I would sacrifice
Don't tell me its not worth fighting for
I can't help it there's nothing I want more
There's no love like your love (JESUS)
