A SLAVE TO LOVE BY CHOICE
Jesus replied, “If I said anything wrong, you must prove it. But if I’m speaking the truth, why are you beating me?” JOHN 18:23
God's kind of love is never self-serving or self-seeking. This love is sacrificial by nature even at the point of death (Jn. 15:13), because through it we seize to be relevant . The only thing that matters is the safety of the other person.
God's type of love is volitional, that is, an act of the will. It is not sentimental therefore , it has nothing to do with feelings , though it affects our emotions . It is a duty we have for another person . We can choose to love even when we don't feel like it and we can always conduct ourselves in a godly manner, when we feel God's kind of love. God's kind of love is also the antidote to selfishness and pride. These is the solution to the many breakup in families. By looking away from yourself you overcome selfishness and this is only made possible to falling in love with God more than with ourself. It is in discovering God's love that we destroy selfishness.
Jesus didn't feel some emotional sensation when He chose to die for us, but that was the greatest demonstration of God's kind of love that the world has ever seen. He made a choice in spite of His emotions. Because He was consumed with God's love, He acted properly, even when His emotions didn't agree.
As you read this now recieve grace to be the ultimate example of God's kind of love in your relationship in Jesus name.
