Ladies, it’s about time you stop looking for love in all the wrong places, and begin looking in the RIGHT places!
Roman 8:32-39 says:
“What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? 33 Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. 34 Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.
35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[p] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
REAL, BEAUTIFUL, POWERFUL, PERFECT LOVE is REVEALED *IN* CHRIST JESUS! It isn’t revealed in that significant other who makes you feel special because he or she says all the right things and gives you the tingles with his or her affection. In fact, the very reason you’re still seeking love in another human being is because you have yet to discover it in its purest, richest form in Christ!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: my husband is great, but he doesn’t hold a candle to my perfect Jesus. Over seven years and Jesus Christ has NEVER failed me or abandoned me, or belittled me, or brought me down. Indeed, NO ONE can hold a candle to Jesus. Once you’ve come to seek love in the best place it can be found (in Him), you’ll also know this to be true.
I say the second-best place to find love is in the Church because other, true Jesus-followers have Him living inside, and they can thus love you much better than anyone else can who does NOT have Him living on the inside. When a person loves Jesus, it is guaranteed they will love you better than someone who does not love Him. Jesus Himself said:
“Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”-John 13:35
So if you’re wondering if there’s a better love to be found out there, look no more. He’s right there waiting for you.
