What is true love? Some say that true love can happen at the first sight, or first kiss. True love is unconditional. True love is defined today inside a simple movie saga. Here is the summary.
Children, Teenagers, and Adults alike, sit in amazement at the love story of a mortal choosing between a vampire and a werewolf. So dark yet intimate. So eerie but sweet. So evil, but fulfilling. They watch in awe as the romance in the vampires voice tells his mortal girlfriend I want to be with you but i will not destroy your soul. They watch in amazement how the mortal chooses the dead over the living creature. They watch with gleaming eyes as the vampire and the mortal fall in love, get married, have an un-dead baby and kill the mortal only to turn her into a vampire giving her an eternal damnation for her soul. They watch to see “true” love conquer all.
The world decides it is better to lose their soul for the lust of their hearts. The world decides it is better for the darkness to abide while fleeing from the light. The world decides it is better to let a man take your blood, then give his own to save you. They would rather believe that true love is allowing a man to damn your soul, then giving it eternal life. This is how America today views true love.
But this is the work of Satan.
The movie? Maybe but I am not talking about the movie. I am talking about the perversion in true love today. The belief that true love is not about giving life but taking it. Sure the mortal gave her life up to be with the vampire. But she also gave her soul.
This is not true love, only true lust.
But what is true love? 1 John 4:8 says God is love. In every definition of God you will see Love. And if you want to see true love, just read HIS word. Here is the summary.
While man yet cheated on God and turned their back on Him, God still wanted to pursue man. Though God could not be near sin and death, He gave up his throne to wrap Himself in flesh just so He could be with us. And He walked this evil world just to shine a light so that we could see the true definition of true love and to save our lives. And man still chose evil over God so He did what had to be done. The only way to save their lives and show them true love was to give up His life for them. Thus true love conquered all.
Now as man is scattered all over the earth, some have realized it is better to surrender their life for God, instead of giving up their soul for the world. These people realized it is better to shine as lights then live in complete darkness. These people realized that God shed his blood so no one else ever has to. They have seen true love and inherited eternal life and watched the rest damn their own souls by rejecting God. This America, is True Love.
You see the difference? Continue to look for your vampire and he will eventually drain the life from you. And your love/lust will only live as long as your flesh does. But God said if we come to Him, that His love endures forever. Even after our flesh is gone.
True love is not about “what can this person do for me?”. Such as,
- Does he make me laugh?
- Is she beautiful?
- Does he care for me?
- Can she fulfill my needs?
- Can he provide for me?
True love is about “What can i do for this person?” Such as,
- How can I show him I care?
- Can I provide for her?
- I want to fulfill his needs.
- I want her to laugh.
- I will give my life to them and for them.
True love can be found in God and in His Word.
1 John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
Romans 8:38-39 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
This is True Love.
