Love is Easy Until it Demands Something from Us

 27.3.12



It may seem absurd to say that love demands something from us;  but this morning as I was reading 1Corinthians 13: 4-7(ESV)  I could not think otherwise.

Please read these verses with all attention as if you had never read them before:

"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."

Love is easy until...

It demands from me patience,
Until it demands from a me kind attitude,
Every day, every time, over and over again.

Love is easy until...

It calls me not to envy,
Or boast.

Love is easy until...

It demands from me humility,
And not arrogance.
It is easy until it doesn't call me
To ask for forgiveness, 
And set aside all rudeness.


Love is easy until...

It demands that I should die,
That I should not insist on my own way of doing things.
It is easy until it calls me to leave aside
my own "rights" for the sake of the ones I love.

Love is easy until...

It demands self control from me,
Until it calls me not to be irritable,
Until it calls me not to be resentful.

Love is easy until...

It demands that I should not rejoice at any wrongdoing,
It is easy until it calls me to love truth,
Even though this would mean admitting 
That I am wrong.

Love is easy until...

It demands from me to bear all things,
yes, all things,
every one of them.

Love is easy until...

It demands from me to believe all things,
To Hope all things,
To Endure all things.

This is the only kind of love that never ends.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
