True Love Burns Brightly

Have you ever had that burning, passionate love for someone? Not a burning lust, that many wrongfully interpret as love, but a sense of overwhelming, true love, where you just want to spend every moment of every day with them and shower them with adoration? If you haven't, then you'll find it difficult, if not impossible, to comprehend what I have to say.

That's the presence of the God of true love and the passion Christ has for us, and we need to have that kind of passionate love for one another, without the corruption of lust, for that's what true compassion in God's presence, is.

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.2 Peter 1:2-4
The English noun compassion, meaning "to love together with", comes from Latin. Its prefix com- comes directly from "com", an archaic version of the Latin preposition and affix cum (= with); the -passion segment is derived from passus.Wikipedia

com + passion = with shared passion.

If you've experienced that kind of passionate love, then you know how it fills you with a spirit of joy, generosity, confidence, courtesy, enthusiasm, helpfulness, kindness, etc., and makes you forget all your cares and woes. That's why, it's the power of God's absolute, passionate, virtuous, true love, that can transform a sinner into a saint, in the twinkle of an eye and conquers all.

Yet how crushed do you feel, if that love isn't shared and reciprocated? That's how God feels, when you don't share His love with others, with passion and slip into taking Him and them for granted.

You can be like everyone else in the world and say, "What's the point? They don't love me back!" But that's the difference with being a blood vessel of God (absolute love). If you've truly experienced His divine, supernatural presence (Holy Ghost) of absolute, undying love and virtuousness, then like me, you fell in love, with love itself and know that true love doesn't come from another, but from the heart of God and deep within your own heart.

Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man's devising.Acts 17:29

There is one, true love for everyone and that's the absolute, undying, passionate, virtuous, true love of God, for God IS the very nature and characteristics of love, in absoluteness.

May He touch your heart with His absolute love, that overwhelms your senses, sweeps you off your feet and fills you with the absolute bliss of His true love's absolute holiness, peacefulness, gracefulness, graciousness and JOY, and makes you feel "on top of the world" and like a king! And heals all wounds, including broken hearts...

Virtue of the Week


lion-like characteristic

When you have ideals, you really care about what is right and meaningful in life. You follow your beliefs. You don't just accept things the way they are. You dare to go against the current and make a difference. Idealists dare to have big dreams and then act as if they are possible, even if everyone tells them it's impossible.

But know that the Lord has set apart for Himself him who is godly; The Lord will hear when I call to Him.Psalm 4:3
