Death by Love

What if.. we could die without love?

We kill for love. We strive for love. We thrive on love. So, doesn’t it make sense that we could die without it?

At least, in our minds, it would seem so.

“We can’t live without love,” we tell ourselves. And it’s true. There’s something inside us that cries out for it and will do almost anything to get it. Makes sense since we were created by a God who loves us more than we can even imagine.

But, we’ve fallen away from that love. It’s become tainted and warped -fake. We’ve lost sight of the true meaning and purpose of love. So much so that we look for the imitation kind to fill that ache within us just so we can get ourselves from point A to point B. So that we can glimpse or feel that love for just a moment.

Yet, it doesn’t last. And we keep looking for it over and over again.

When it disappears or crumbles, we are back to where we started. Loveless.

But, okay, I’m getting off topic a bit. Love is something we all simply MUST have, right? But, can we die without it? Is it possible to live without the love we find on this earth? That artificial love?

Yes. The answer is Jesus. Never has there been a more perfect love than the love shown through Jesus Christ. Without His love, we really do die. Every day.

Don’t know Him? You can today. Anyone can. His love is always open to you.

  1. Great. Post.

    There are a lot of people in this world who spend their lives chasing something they will never get, getting something they can never keep, and keeping something they should let go of.

    All in the name of a love that really isn't love at all.
