Extreme Love


Love is in the air and all around. There is nothing that can be better, greater, or more epic than love. Love is great, grand and it is, well, epic! Yes, love is the best and it is truly the most powerful thing in the entire world. Still, the greatest love is the love that God has for you. After all, he loved you so much that he sent his only Son to die for you.  Now that is extreme love! God provided you the greatest example of love and scripture to demonstrate the meaning of love. The most famous of these is 1 Corinthians 13. Take a peek at it substituting your name or in this example "you" for the word LOVE and see how close it comes to describing you:

You are patient and kind. You do not envy, or boast, and are not rude.  You do not insist on your own way, are not irritable, not easily angered, and are not resentful. You do not delight in evil but rejoice with the truth. You always protect, always trust, always hope, always persevere.
How did you do? I personally had more than a few gaps. You may have a few as well. The good news is that Jesus has no gaps. He is God and God is love. God loves you not just a little, but more than you can ever imagine. Walk with him each day. Reflect on his love and over time you will find less gaps and more likeness to him.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
