Do you want someone to love you because you have confused, MANIPULATED, cajoled or forced them to believe so?
Do you want someone to love you out of the FEAR of what they stand to lose for not loving you?
Do you want someone to love you cos they feel OBLIGATED to do so?
Do you want someone to love you because they think they don't have a CHOICE?
And in truth, a lot of people base their LOVE on the aforementioned...
Imagine also that God doesn't want us to love him simply because the LAW orders us to do so or we fear the consequences of not trying to love him or not having him in our lives...Which is why he freed us from the law and gave us GRACE. For Grace is one of the biggest reflections of Love.
He wants us to love him simply because we VALUE him and can sacrifice our time for him.
We christians always say we gave ourselves to christ.... but the truth is that we have NOTHING to give him, because we SACRIFICED nothing. Instead He gave himself to us. And that's true love, because the proof of love is rooted in sacrifice...And it is for that love, we were purposely created.
For to love someone....Is to give all of yourself willingly and freely.
Because there is no greater feeling, no greater grace than someone who loves you, even with your IMPERFECTIONS, and no greater sacrifice than someone who puts your own needs above theirs, out of love, out of their own free will, out of their own free choosing.
So when next someone claims to love you. The real proof is rooted in the amount of GRACE they give you and the level of SACRIFICE they make for you.
Have A Sweet Sunday Lovelies! Kisses!
