The Reason Love is Important

I will admit, I'm not that consistent. I have trouble sticking with things. But it does not mean I have forgotten about them. I am working very hard at being more consistent and post more things. It is a process, but, Philippians 4:13 "I can do everything through him who gives me strength." So because of this I will try to be more consistent.

If you haven't noticed, I talk about love a lot. Love is the basis of the Christian faith. Love is what takes it from religion to relationship. You see, in so many other religions it's about the things you do. If you are a good person you get the reward. But Christianity is different in that it is about what he did for us and how we choose to respond to that. Further more actions can't get you to heaven. It is the attitude behind your actions. Christianity is having a relationship with someone who loved you so much he was willing to die for you, and letting him teach you how to be filled with a love beyond comprehension, joy unexplainable, and peace undefinable. He can give you purpose and a future. And best of all he will NEVER leave you or forsake you. He is alive and will stay by your side. No one else could ever love you as much as he does. He loves everyone no matter what they have done. And his invitation is open to anyone.
Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
