The Bible has so much to say about love. 

If we love the Lord we will keep His commands. 

We love Him because He first loved us. 

Love thy neighbor as thyself, ye do well. 

 In this day when it seems that the love of many has waxed cold, we need to be sure that the oil in our lamp is burning. How do we love those who are difficult to love? What is love? How can we love them others well? 

In Hebrew, love is  directly connected to action and obedience. Strong’s  defines ahava as “to have affection, sexually or otherwise, love, to befriend, to be intimate.”  Do you see here, the idea of longing for another?  Ahava is a verb, it is also a noun, it speaks to an act of doing. Ahava is not just a feeling. Ahava speaks of devotion, service, Giving both intentionally and cheerfully. We read that God so loved the world that He GAVE His only Son. That we should be saved. 

It is so good for us to know that the Lord’s love never fails. Love is patient with others. Love is kind. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, though I give my body to be burned, if I have not love, it profits me nothing.Where is our heart? Remember, we can bear some things, we can believe some things, we can hope some things, and we can endure some things but God calls us deeper into love for Him and for our neighbor.
