What Love Is
“Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done” (Luke 22:42).
My lovely one. Do you know how I love to call you that? You ask Me about my Son and his sacrifice and my sacrifice. And I help you picture it. I help you imagine.
Yes, I hid my face that day. Yes, I let the sky tremble, the earth shake. All of heaven wanted to explode. A battle waged, a victory won, a sacrifice: what love is. One of the pictures of love.
Yes, love is sacrifice. Yes, love is putting self on the altar, giving yourself back to Me.
Love is giving yourself to Me. The eyes of the created looking to the Creator, the beginning of death and the beginning of life. You are born through Me.
I give you life. No one else. You can find life nowhere else.
Are you willing to let yourself die to be born again, with Me? What needs to be sacrificed? Of what are you willing to let go? What do you hold tightly? What seems impossible—creates in you fear—to give to Me, to entrust to Me, to let me take it and give you peace?
My Son’s death and life and sacrifice and resurrection is enough. Just once.
The birthing of love once more.
Come and give Me all of you. Let love live in you. Hold nothing back.
I am coming now.
My eyes on you.

This was an answer that was given before I asked the question.
That’s my Father!
It had been in an email I hadn’t read from October.
Father knew I would need it now, after being challenged by someone on my love walk.
I was going to use the famous song lyrics as my title:
“I wanna know what love is… I want you to show me.”
I then, remembered this one, and it fit..better.
STOP: In the name of Love.
There’s a lot of chatter on the topic of love.
This generation seems to think that love is being able to act however you like and someone never saying anything about it.
That’s not love.
Jesus loved us.
He died in our place.
He set aside His comfort and happiness, emptied Himself and gave us the ability,
to do the same.
Love allows others to grow, but loves us too much to leave us in a mess.
Jesus doesn’t bless our mess.
That’s not the love message.
Jesus blessed us above our mess to make our lives His message.
