Follow Love

Follow love and you will never go astray. Love will always lead you in the right direction. Love is a faithful companion who will make life worth living. When you follow love, two others always join. To follow love means faith and hope will always join you. But remember love is the greatest. "And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love" (1 Corinthians 13:13). That's because, when you follow love, you follow God. The Bible says, "God is love" (1 John 4:8).

Follow love means you need not be concerned about fear. Follow close to love and you will be free from all fear. You have no fear when love is near. Fear wants no part of love. Fear is intimidated in the face of love. "There is no fear in love" (1 John 4:18). The reason is simple, because "God is love." 

Not everyone will follow love, because not everyone knows love. You must know love before you can follow love. Those who know not love cannot know faith and hope. Sad to say, they often have to live with fear. The explanation is clear, because "God is love."

You can only follow love when you have love in your heart. You may ask, "How can I have love in my heart?" Only the Holy Spirit can put love in your heart. "The love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit" (Romans 5:5). Now you may ask, "Will the Holy Spirit do that for me?" Yes. Love has a Son. Love sent Him to die for your sins. Love raised Him from the dead. Believe on the Son, Jesus Christ. Then, you will know "God is love."
