Loved to the End
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: When the great Russian poet, Pushkin, finally married in 1831, he said it was the 113th time that he had fallen in love. It seems to me that that wordsmith didn’t really know the meaning of the word “love.”
God is love, and He gave us the true definition in His book. The New Testament uses the word “agape” to describe the kind of love God has for us and the love we should show one another.
Jesus demonstrated that kind of love when He stooped down, took the role of a servant, and washed the feet of the people He had created. The apostle John tells us the story and says, “...having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.”
Is your concept of love more like the emotional feelings of the poet Pushkin? Or is it more like the sacrificial action of Jesus?
