We lost the purity of love. We really lost the way to love purely. Each of us have encountered love in our own way. Whether it is through our better half or through the people around us. Each of us gives love according to the goodness in us. I should say or rather point out, that this goodness in us is starting to diminish.
This goodness in us have been taken over by evil in us. In case of love, the evil in us is LUST. The lust over body. The greed for money and power. These has replaced the pure love in us. True love in our heart has abandoned us, due to the occupation of the vacant space in our heart by lust.
Do you want to know why? Coz we lost God’s presence in us. God is love.
God is omnipresent. He is merciful. He is willing to forgive and forget coz HE IS LOVE. Now why am I speaking these words? It is because I happen to stumble upon something. And as usual it opened my inner eyes. Here it goes:
1 John 4:8
He who does not love has not become acquainted with God [never did know Him], for God is love.
Love can be seen, it cannot be hid. If you LOVE it will SHOW! No matter how much you try to hide love, you just will not be successful. Love is so powerful that it has to be MANIFEST.
LOVE without HOLINESS is not love but lust!
Love is not a suggestion, in fact it’s a commandment. Love is the essence of a transparent godly character. Love is so awesome that when we exercise love, love begins to flood out of our spirit, soul and body.
When the LOVE of God is present in our lives, it enables and encourages us to be pure, it releases purity.
2 Timothy 2:22
Shun youthful lusts and flee from them and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace in fellowship with all, who call upon the Lord out of a pure heart.
Listen to your soul. For it cries out to you. Listen the pain in your soul. For it needs love and wants to give love. Then who are we to stop it?
Light allows us to see things clearly, when begin to walk in the Light of Christ, we allow the light to shine on us and through us. The light shows us stuff that needs to be cleared out of our lives so that the brilliance of the light might shine out unhindered.
Without knowing God first, You cannot know pure love. No matter how much ever you claim to know!
