I posted a question on Facebook…
I didn’t get any answers.
So, I began to think about it. What I came up with is this: when we consider the topic of love, we must look to the perfect example of it and Who love is – Jesus. And He loves us unconditionally without any limits. Therefore, the answer is no.
Now, I understand there are different types of love and from a spiritual perspective I can only imagine the dimensions and levels to the agape love of Jesus Christ. But, this led me to the sad reality that no one will ever experience real true love from another person, other than Jesus, while here on earth. It’s not possible because we’re not perfect, only God is.
People hurt people, or get hurt, lose trust in one another, then separate. Or, they have situational or predetermined ideas about how much they will invest into their relationship with you. And I don’t know if this is worse, but that’s destine to happen in some capacity with everyone you care about in your entire life. I’ve experienced this like everyone else, I’m no exception. I guess this is one reason why Heaven is so great.
The good news is Jesus will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5 K.J.V. Amen.). His love is everlasting. And He is the only One Who will continually love you regardless. It says so here: “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor death, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39 K.J.V. Amen.
This goes along with another revelation I had regarding marriage or finding a wife. And that’s that Jesus never married. Yet, He still had everything He needed to complete His mission here on earth to save the world.
Furthermore, I’ve been thinking about Luke 14:26 for some time now and this topic of love gave me some clarity once the aforementioned points were realized. That verse says: “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:26 K.J.V. Amen. It seems only logical to hate one’s life based on knowing that they’ll never experience real true love their whole life here on earth.
Just my thoughts.
As always, be blessed, be safe, and be happy.
