Is that really true? Love is all we need? C.S. Lewis wrote in his masterful work, The Four Loves, that there are four distinctly different greek words used to describe what we have compressed in the English language into the most powerful four letter word ever, love. Friendship is a form of love (philia), as is affection (storge). Then there is the romance, passion, and fire of (eros) which infers being in love but appears to me to be more in tune with what happens to us feeling wise in the moment. Finally, there is agape – unconditional love – that is devoid of manipulation and cannot be earned or bargained for as a commodity. It is the very character of God and is God’s gift to us both to receive and to understand in the life of Jesus Christ as our personal Savior and Lord. John 13:34 is written in red letters to you and me as a command, “Love one another”. Inferred, just like I have loved you!
What a great and loving God we serve! So, in light of this let me ask you a spiritual question, “how is your love life?” your love life in Jesus.
