Love…

Love, the elixir of life!

The whole world, it seems, is preoccupied with the quest
for prolonging life.

What does the Bible say about it?
      With long life I will satisfy him (us),
      and show him My salvation.
      Psalms 91 16

When will God do that?
      Because he (we) has set his love upon Me,
      therefore I will deliver him;
      Psalms 91 14

To love, and loving God, is the key to living a long life!
But how is that possible?
Jesus answered a certain lawyer with these words,

      You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
      with all your soul, with all your strength, and
      with all your mind, and your neighbour as yourself.
      Luke 10 27

And, Romans 5 5 tells us that …
      the love of God has been poured out in our hearts
      by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

In other words, God has made it possible for us to love,
… to love Him and to love our fellow man,
by pouring His love in our hearts,
… and showing us the way of love!

As the apostle John concluded,
      We love Him because He first loved us.
      1John 4 19
