The Truth About Love: An Encouragement To Love

     In my past articles I have talked about the different kind of love. I have jotted down my study-based thoughts and formed them into articles, hoping to persuade all of you to love more openly, more deeply, and just more in general. Today I would like to encourage you all to take what I have said, study it for yourselves, then proceed to teach and love others with the kind of brotherly love that we read about in Romans 12:10 and to insist on God's way like we studied in 1 Corinthians 13:5, and to have a natural love as we can study in Romans 1. This article is mostly not for your edification, but to encourage you all to live your lives in a way that will help you get to heaven, and to persevere and learn and study so we can receive an imperishable crown as we can see in 1 Corinthians 9:24.

     Love is very important in a way that if everyone had a pure, undefiled love for one another then we wouldn't have to worry about any other sin. If we all loved as we should then we would never slander, gossip, hurt, or hinder anyone from continuing on their journey towards their heavenly home. If we all loved unconditionally as God does, the world would be a much better place. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Regrettably the rest of the world doesn't fully understand the love that Jesus had for us when He died on the cross so that we can be baptized to be saved from the fires of hell (even though most people reject this offer). Grievously most will never experience the joys of understanding the love that God has for us, but instead misunderstand and assume that there is no God, never seeing the beauty of His boundless love. This is why we need to always teach others, and spread the Word around with everyone we can so that we can leave this earth having accomplished something greater than discovering a country, being a world leader, or even saving thousands of lives. The only lives that matter in the end are spiritual ones.

     Today I would like to encourage you all to remember to love and not hate, and to always be teaching or studying or praying, and to do things for others. Whether it's taking food to those who need it, or just giving someone a well needed hug, we always need to remember that everyone in the world sins, and as Christians we do not accept their sins, but to accept the person even if they're not your best friend.
