A Life of Love

“Be imitators of God and live a life of love, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her as a sacrifice to God.”Ephesians 5:1-2.

I was really convicted by this verse last night. A life of love…what does that look like? Can a life truly be defined by love? Everyone is characterized by something. Maybe an obsessions with a sports team, or a passion for politics, or some kind of reputation that precedes them. But is “love” the first word people think of when describing what characterizes you as a person? Are you patient, humble, and forgiving enough that it can be said that you truly live a life of love?

Dang…that can’t be said about me. Yet. But I’m working towards a goal. And when my time here is up, I hope it can be written on my tombstone, “She lived a life of love.” Because in the end, the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
