The Word love involves everything from free love to manipulated love these days. But the real Power of Love, is it mercy and forgiveness. The real power of love, was displayed on the cross. God who is love, gave mercy and forgiveness through it.
The power of perfect love casts out fear: 1 John 4 verse 18;
But the love the world calls love, lacks commitment, as well as mercy and forgiveness. Love doesn’t give up on things, when things get tough.
Our Lord and Our Friend’s love, allows believers to do what the world’s love can’t, it helps His followers, be capable of blessing those who curse us, and capable of doing good to those who hate, spitefully use, or persecute us: Matthew 5 verse 44:
Love is an attribute of God, an attribute that doesn’t give up, an attribute that any ‘whosoever’ can come to Him: John 3 verse 16;
God’s love is empowering, without being demanding. God’s love is available, to any ‘whosoever’, without being condemning.
The Power of real love, never is cheap, or manipulating, it is the love we as believer should live and walk in, because we have died to self, to live for Him.
