What’s Love Got To Do With It?
If you ask my dad to define love, he will laugh and say “Love is a feeling you feel when you feel you’re going to feel the feeling you’ve never felt before!” Merriam Webster defines love as “a strong or constant affection for a person. [An] attraction that includes sexual desire; the strong affection felt by people who have romantic relationship.” Love is Like, on a more intense level. Love, when done right, makes you feel happy, light and free. Love makes you want to show someone how you feel in more ways than one. Love doesn’t happen overnight but you will wake up one morning and realize that you have been falling in love with someone. Love is a gradual, slow and patient process. But it’s sooo worth it. Love is so important in our everyday world, that there are countless books, other than the Bible, that explains love. In Gary Chapman’s book, The Five Love Languages, he explores the different ways in which we can love someone, and the ways in which we receive, interpret and understand love. The five love languages are Acts of Service, Words of Affirmation, Gifts of Love, Quality Time, and Physical Affection. If you don’t know what your love language is, I urge you to spend a few moments today, and take the short test. Provided is the link: http://www.5lovelanguages.com/profile/
Today, from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM, we will be focusing on Love, how it impacts our daily lives, and what God’s Love Language is! Our culture uses the word love so much that it has lost its value. We love our significant others, family, shoes, and food all the same. God’s original design of love was never meant to be trivialized or taken lightly. Love requires sacrifice, and when the sacrifice is removed from the equation, love will lose its value. Today, we will intentionally repurpose, recondition and redefine our minds with God’s original definition of love, while dispelling the definition of love that society has presented and taught us for most of our lives.

Verses for Meditation
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.Galatians 5:22-23
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the SpiritGalatians 5:25
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens mePhilippians 4:13
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails1 Corinthians 13:4-8
He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.1 John 4:8
And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.1 John 4:16
We love because He first Loved us.1 John 4:19
A time to love, And a time to hate. Ecclesiastes 1:8
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.John 3:16
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.1 Corinthians 13:1-8
