What is True Love?

What is true love? Do you really know? Is it the feeling you get when you see someone for the first time or is that simply attraction?

The Bible states in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

While 1 Corinthians 13 details the aspects of what love is, it still misses the one defying aspect of true love as defined in John 15:13, which days, “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.“

True love is when you give more to someone else than you may ever get back. This is true unselfish love.

Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.- 1 John 4:11

Give the Gift of Love

True Love
Can change your heart
Wash away pain
Offer you a new start
Might wonder how I know
This to be true
Cause what Love did for me
Love can do for you

Once I was lost
Afraid of what life would hold
Each day I would dread
Each day I would feel so cold
But I sought out Love
I felt Love calling my name
Love offered me comfort
My heart was finally set free

Love will renew
Your heart and mind
Help you take words of Love
To those you find
So they may be drawn
Under the wings of Love
As they travel in this world
And the world to come

True Love
Can change your heart
Wash away pain
Offer you a new start
Might wonder how I know
This to be true
Cause what Love did for me
Love can do for you

And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. - Colossians 3:14

Your Love

I can’t stop thinking about love
Since I met you
I can’t stop
Thinking about love

Ooh something got a hold of me
Don’t let go
Something got a hold on me
I won’t let go

I once wandered
a dry barren land
Living the life
I’d planned

Thought I had
I had all the love
I dreamed of
Till I met you
My eyes were opened
I saw my life
for what it is
for what it is

I can’t stop thinking about love
Since I met you
I can’t stop
Thinking about love

Thought my life
truly complete
I needed nothing
more then what I had
Till I met you
My heart was opened
I saw my life
for what it is
for what it is

Truly empty
Incomplete
Half of what I
Was meant to be
But now

I can’t stop thinking about love
Since I met you
I can’t stop
Thinking about love
Your love
Stored in my heart

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. - John 13:34

Love's Love

Listen there’s a heart singing
Everyone’s song
Listen as your heart tries to
Sing along
Is now as it was before

Love’s love
Ain’t never gonna change
From now to eternity
Gonna be the same

You can fall in
You can fall out
But when love is love
It’ll make you
Twist and shout

Love’s love
Ain’t never gonna change
From now to eternity
Gonna be the same

Love’s love
Love’s love
Love’s love

Listen to your heart
Calling deep inside
Listen, listen
Might be your time
Time For Your Heart
He’s waiting for you
To do your part

So now i call out to you
Be careful, be careful
To follow the word
Of the lord\
