Distorted Love

Totally against the grain with what I am busy with… But at least I can find the words to express what’s on my heart with this topic, the other topic keeps falling short of words to express what is on my heart… I’ve been “CTRL+ALT+DELETING” it now for 3 weeks, but in due course, not rushing it.

God is Love, we are created in His likeness; so why is there such turmoil in the realm we tread in physically? Why is it so hard to love? Why is it so hard to find love? Why is it so hard spot it?

What is love? God tells us to “Love thy neighbor as thy love thy self…” Do you love yourself? How do you love yourself?
I have been meditating on this a while back, my meditation includes studying, it is not just a pondering thought for a day, it usually keeps me occupied for some time… I seek understanding and revelation; I seek answers on how to apply it… Please correct me if I am wrong, but personally I couldn’t find a “self-help-guide” on how to “love thyself” in the Bible. It is filled with how God loves us, how He wants the best for us, how He longs for communion with us. It tells us how we should love others, and every good reason why to LOVE Him.

Define love in your own words, put an emotion to it. Once the butterflies are gone and the honeymoon phase has passed, what makes you feel loved, and what makes you love?

Now define God in your own words.

Is your definition of Love the same or similar to your definition of God?
If not, go back to the drawing board, because you are doing something wrong, it is distorted.

Did Jesus physically or verbally tell anyone that He love them while we was among us? It is mentioned John was the disciple He loved most, but I couldn’t find Jesus verbally telling anyone face-to-face that He loves them. But He was, and is, LOVE, His every action shows love… the life of Jesus on earth was love in action.

We don’t know love, because we don’t know God. The world is in the state is in because we do not know God, because we do not know love. We think we do, but we don’t. Our view is distorted, corrupted by pride and selfish mindsets.

Seek your identity in Christ, who you are and who you are formed to be… find Christ and you will find yourself. Find yourself in Christ and you will find true love.

Seek that moment your view on love was distorted, you were made in love, designed to love, your default mode is love, you are love… what went wrong, where did it go wrong?

So, in the end I did not find the words to express my thoughts for the night, but rather I leave you with a whole lot of questions.

1 John 4 tells us a lot about love… spend a bit of time on it…

‘Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us. If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.’
