Love Known

If love is known by sacrifice,
How well do we love?
If love is known by compassion,
How well do we love?

If love is known by time in prayer,
How well do we love?
If love is known by our actions,
How well do we love?

If love is known by what we say,
How well do we love?
If love hopes and endures all things,
How well do we love?

If love is known by choices made,
How well do we love?
If love covers multiple sins,
How well do we love?

If love is patient and it’s kind,
How well do we love?
If love is laying down our lives,
How well do we love?

Behind the lines

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.

No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another. (John 15:9-17 ESV)

One thought on “Love Known

  1. Tim,

    Love , Love This Post. I pray I will love like Jesus would have me love. Praying for more love for others and less love of myself.

    One thing I know for sure is that Jesus is my Savior and that He loves me. Another thing I know for sure is that I love you.

    Love Forever,

    MOM
