True love is self-transcendent. It consists of forsaken your own life and dedicating yourself to fulfilling the wants, needs, and interests of God and man.
A complete picture of true love is expressed in the following biblical passage: such divine love transcends ordinary human love. In divine love, fear does not exist. Only love is king.
- Love is patient, love is kind
- Love does not envy
- Is not boastful, is not conceited,
- Does not act improperly
- Is not selfish, is not provoked
- And does not keep a record of wrongs
- Love finds no joy in unrighteousness
- But rejoices in the truth
- It bears all things, believes all things
- Hopes all things, endures all things
When we love with such depth and divinity, the rewards are vast:
- Overwhelming joy and happiness
- Popularity and constant recognition
- Sense of Oneness with God
- Special favor from others
- Emotional, mental and spiritual transformation
The pleasure of living a life saturated with true love is an experience of beauty and connects you with everything in the universe. Your life becomes a series of delights.
Those who love the love of God are transformed beyond ordinary humanhood into a divine being who really know God. God is love. To love is to become acquainted with the creator.
History is filled with people who loved greatly. This love made them stand out from the crowd of ordinary humanity. Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, Gundi with an untold number of others who sacrificed their interests for the interests of others.
The Influential Power of True Love
These people possessed an inner joy and wealth of character which couldn’t be matched by money or any material riches that the world could offer them. Their fame will endure forever.
Those who practice true love cannot avoid bigness. The magnificent quality of true love will bring an individual out of obscurity into the light of humanity. Those who love to push others toward greatness and deliver the hopeless from despair and depression
Because people who practice true love is an alignment with God. Therefore, God empowers them to do wonderful things for the betterment of mankind.
I haven’t reached the point of mastery when it comes to true love, but the more I love, the more oneness I feel with the creator. Love enables me to know God and my identity with all creation.
Our love can grow so powerful that it conquers our mind and all we can think about is serve God and the world of humanity.
Refuse to have a heart possessed by hatred
Avoid becoming bitter when people acted rude toward you (they will). Instead, return love to those who don’t have your best interest in mind. These individuals could be family members, co-workers, neighbors or strangers in our community. By choosing to love our haters, we help transform and deliver them from the negative attitudes and vibes which are destroying the planet.
