Love Is...

"Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails;" - 1 Corinthians 13:4‭-‬8 NASB If you've been a Christian for any length of time you know that these verses constitute a Biblical definition of love. Today I want to show you something that has grown me tremendously. It's a simple rephrasing that helps to communicate God's intent. Instead of saying the words "I love you", replace them with these phrases. They define in great detail what Godly love is all about. Here they are: I am and will be patient with you. I am and will be kind to you. I am and will be happy for you. I am and will humble myself before you. I am and will be pleasing to you. I am and will be for you. I will not be easily offended. I am not and will not be keeping score in our relationship. I will not celebrate What God Says is wrong but I promise to celebrate the truth with you. I am and will be your confidant. I do and will take you at your word. I am and will be hopeful for the future. I will weather any storm with you. I will not give up on us!
