Why hate when it feels so good to love. I know that statement is so loaded with so many arguments and questions and I cannot answer them but I can clarify a little. I am talking about the type of love and compassion talked about in the bible, because I know there are a lot of messed up views about love in the world.
A lot of people question why I want to dedicate my life to the lord. Love has always been something I try to stay away from because I don’t understand it, however I think this is changing. I am in no way saying that I understand love, I think it is too complex and supernatural for anyone to fully understand, however I am feeling it much more now.
About a week ago I actually got to see my dad and when I left i couldn’t stop smiling. It went on all day. There was such an overflowing feeling of joy and love in my heart for my dad that i actually started to cry on my way home. I had to pull my car over just to calm myself down. It was Great. I find this happening more and more often.
I keep thinking back to the beginning, the beginning of everything, and love has always been behind it. God created me, you, my parents, Lucifer, Hitler, President Obama, because he loves these people and wants a relationship with them.
I walk around campus and I see so many people that have been deprived of a relationship with Jesus and I just want to tell everyone. It hit me more this year that ever before. I really just want to stand up and scream it from the rooftops about how amazing the lord’s love is and how great it feels to have a relationship with him.
“God is love and if you’re not into god you must not be into love.”
It’s so easy for us to not want to love, when we are battered by the world and rejected all the time. We live in an unforgiving disgusting system dedicated to pain and torture. We live in a system that causes college students to do nothing but study and then numb the pain with binge drinking. We live in a system that dangle every temptation possible in front of our eyes in an attempt to commit ourselves to slavery to our own lust.
“It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1 NASB
“ Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.” Galatians 5:1 The Message
Christ offers freedom through love. I think what I’m trying to say is everyone likes the feeling of love, and love is what the bible is all about so why not give it a try.
