Love Out Loud

Love, in all of its fullness,

is the one thing our hearts desire more than anything else.

Everyone yearns for love

Yet, we see discarded people, God’s creation, being tossed out every day by society.

People who think they have been forgotten or unseen by the world,

people...who are just dying to be heard,

and people who want to be understood.

God's will is for us to reflect Christ- and the essence of his character is love!

Jesus wants us to love others, but the love he wants us to have is more than an emotion. It is an act of will- an intentional choice to put others first.

God's love is so pure that he left his glorious home in Heaven to die alone on the cross.

He did it for love

The Bible says- the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

All of this reflects Christ. When christ is in us, selfishness flees

We all have free will.

We all have a choice to make.

Our choice is to label or love them. Which would you want?

We know Jesus' choice.

Jesus loved.

Actually, Jesus loves.

He loves us so much that he is able to forgive us, he is able to look past our wickedness and love us.

Let's do the same for others.

Let's look past each others faults and see that we are all God’s creation.

Let's love out loud.
