  • Macro-Love
    Friday, March 3, 2023
    1 Corinthians 13 says that love perseveres, endures. Some translations render it as long suffering, but the Greek word is macro. In photography, a macro-zoom goes the long distance. That's what love is, it has to be for the long distance, the long run. God's love, agape, isn't short term, not a feeling or something that comes and goes, not a high. God's love is for the long haul. God loved Israel 4,000 years ago. He still loves Israel today. His love for Israel is macro. God loved you when you first came to the Lord. He loves you just as much now. His love for you is macro. His love goes the distance. It holds on when it's easy, when it's hard, when you're love able and when you're unlovable. Your love also has to be macro-love that goes the distance. Not a feeling that comes and goes. Real love perseveres, presses through, never gives up. Love with a true love because that's exactly how God loves you and will always love you. Love with a love that He loved you with... macro love.
    From Message #145 - Love Is
    Today's Mission
    Commit to a love not based on feelings, but a love that perseveres, and presses through no matter what.
