Love Gives

John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that He gave . . .
Galatians 2:20: “. . . I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Ephesians 5:25: “For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her”
Love is only expressed through giving. If there is no giving, there is no evidence that love exists. The only proof of love is giving. Giving is the action that demonstrates love.
So, the measure of your giving is the measure of your love. The more you give -- of yourself, your time, your attention, your affection, your patience, your treasure -- the more you love. This is what Jesus meant in John 15:13.

John 15:13: “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends.

Before I delve into my ‘long’ article, how are you all doing? Long time. How has life been treating y’all? Guess good.
I’ve not blogged for a while now…Been very very busy honestly. God will help these days.

How was our Easter like? Hope you had a reflective one and reviving too. Easter to me is a time to think about LOVE. It should even be Christian’s VAL period.
It’s a time to think of the LOVE of a father for his children…
The love of a brother (Jesus – heir of the father) for his siblings (us – joint heirs with Christ)…Love of a friend (Jesus) for his persecutors…
What a dear dear LOVER we have in Jesus.
What do see of what Jesus did for you?
Nailing him again or loving him now?
Building a relationship with him now or rejecting him the more?
Sharing with him or talking at him?
Keeping him in you, with you, by you or keeping him in your “book”?
Think on these things…
