The ultimate test of love comes when a person is asked to give up all they value for the sake of another.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) January 05, 2016
Love is the foundation of every relationship, the mission of every Christ follower, the very heartbeat of God, yet it is utterly misunderstood. It is the most powerful force on earth and is a God created gift to be a matter of both the heart and mind.
In The Seven Laws of Love (January 5, 2016, Thomas Nelson), pastor Dave Willis unpacks the seven laws found throughout Scripture, and then offers practical insights in living out these truths in each of life’s significant relationships — with oneself, God, spouse, family, friends, neighbors, and enemies. Armed with a better understanding of how to put love into practice, the beauty of real love can be experienced in new and profound ways.
“The ultimate test of love comes when a person is asked to give up all they value for the sake of another,” Willis writes. “Jesus taught that there is no greater love than to willingly lay down your own life for the sake of others. We don’t make our sacrifices for recognition; we make our sacrifices for love. When love moves you to sacrifice, you can rest assured that lives will be changed and eternity will be impacted.”
Willis explains that we can change the world when we are willing to do small things with love. Miracles and opportunities happen around us every day and it is up to us to loosen the reigns of preoccupation for the instances to show the love of God.
