Victory Vitamin Blog – Romans 13:8

“Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another,”

-Romans 13:8 NIV

 

This Sunday at Victory, we’re going to ask the age old question, “What is love?”  It’s easier to state what love is NOT.  Love is not lust.  Though feelings are at times involved, I’d say love is not a feeling.  Like the Bible says, love is not rude, it is not self-seeking, love keeps no record of wrongs.  Love is a commitment.  Love is action.  Love is sacrifice.  Here are two ways to get a better idea of what love is.  How do you take care of yourself?  We’re to love our neighbor as ourselves, so how do you care for yourself?  Do that for others.  Second, how did Jesus show love for us?  Less with words, more with action.  He didn’t consider what was best for Him, His concern was and is what is best for us.  He suffered, died, and rose not for His own good, but for ours.  You now have hope, peace, forgiveness and eternal life in Him.  This Thanksgiving give thanks by demonstrating love for others.
