Understanding What Love IS – S3E7

Wisdom Series Pt.2 

To begin with, relationships are a part of life. Whether family, friendship, romantic, or professional we all have them. At the end of the day, that is why ‘Understanding What Love IS’ is so important. Because for the most part, no ‘successful’ relationship happens without love. 

It is true some people believe love is the most powerful force in the universe. As a Christian, I believe in the power of love because the Holy Bible tells us that God is love. And He created everything out of love. You may be thinking, “But SD, does ‘every’ successful relationship ‘really’ operate from a place of love?” And my answer is a resounding “Yes!”

Heaven’s Perspective of LOVE — S3-DE7

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

John 3:16-17 (ERV) says: 

Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him would not be lost but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world. He did not send him to judge the world guilty, but to save the world through him.” 

John 3:16-17 (ERV) 

Devotional  

The love God has for HIS creation goes far beyond our imagination. And, this love did not come without a cost. In John 3:16-17, we find that this love had a hefty price to be paid by Jesus Christ and came with a divine purpose—Salvation.

You see, Heaven’s Perspective of Love is that it’s a sacrificial giving of all that you are to benefit another.  In fact, this love carries a load that belongs to another. This love lifts every burden, every problem, and every dreaded thing upon itself.

Loving God and Loving Others

Let love and kindness be the motivation behind all that you do.

1 Corinthians 16:14 The Passion Translation

Devotional 

Beloved, do you know that as we go about representing Jesus Christ, our motivation should always be that of LOVE? No matter who we meet or what they believe, we as the church are to show the love of Christ.  

You might say, “Why is that so important?” I’m glad you asked! It is important because Jesus came to the earth and sacrificed everything, all in the name of LOVE. “For this is how much God loved the world—he gave his one and only unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life.” (John 3:16, TPT)

What is Love and the Role God Plays in It? – S1E1

The Topic of Love

This week SD and Lady V discuss the topic of love; such as, ‘What is love and the role God plays in it?” The ladies start the discussion with the following definitions of the word ‘love’ from Dictionary.com

  • Love can be a warm personal attachment 
  • sexual passion, a term of endearment 
  • enthusiasm of a certain thing (love of books, movies, cars, and etc.) 
  • used as a score of ‘0’ in the sport of tennis.  

SD and Lady V discuss the importance of being on the same page about ‘love’ in any given relationship because everybody’s definition of love is not necessarily the same. Sadly, some people use the word ‘love’ very lightly.
