Real Love

By Pastor Mike Tittes
Grafted in Ministry
Love is the focus of a seemingly infinite number of
songs, movies, books, poems, and even a day called
Valentine’s Day. But what is real love? Is it a feeling or
something the world uses as bait to get you to buy
everything from clothing to hamburgers? Is there
even such a thing as real love? After all, so many
people who say they love each other treat each other
so horribly.
The answer to the question, “Is there real, genuine
love,” is a great big YES! God is the source of a love
that is real and unique and has the power to change
us and the world. Look at what the Bible (God’s
Word) has to say about real love. God is the source
of real love. “Whoever does not love does not know
God, because God is love,” (1John4:8). Jesus said,
“Love your God with all your heart and with all your
soul and with all your mind. This is the first and
greatest commandment,” (Matt22:37-38).
Real love is unique, Jesus said, “By this all men
will know that you are my disciples if you love one
another,” (John13:35). Real love can change the
world. Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself,
Real love is the KEY that connects us to our
heavenly Father, and the only place to find that real,
genuine love is in His Son Jesus Christ. Only then
will we be able to live out our day to day existence
and see what exciting opportunities we have to share
the love of God with other people. The love of God
will change you and His love will help you see the
world through his eyes. “For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus) that
whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but
have everlasting life,” (John3:18).
Jesus paid the ultimate price because He loves you.
