The depth of love

“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends …” 1 Corinthians 13:7-8.

We’ve just left a season in which the entire world is focused on love. Flowers were given; chocolates were consumed; proposals were made; and radio stations played songs. What are the best love songs of all time? Those that speak about the greatest love story of all time—and they aren’t just sung during February but every first day of the week by those who know God’s love as demonstrated through the gospel. From the radio we might hear, “I want to know what love is? And I want you to show me.” The answer the singer is seeking is something in the range of superficial to committed from another—the best that human beings can do. Because we’re made in God’s image, we have the ability to love as He loved us, but it took God becoming flesh and dwelling among us to truly show us the depth of love. Up until Frozen, Disney taught that infatuation is love. The opening of “Up” for a deeper emotional look at mature love. When a movie shows a sacrificial love, it’s learned from the pages of the Bible.

Do you sing weekly about the greatest love of all?
