the secret on how to truly love people

There is a secret to how we can love others well.

Those who have found it know it isn’t actually about them.

The key to unlocking this secret?

God’s love.

When we get how loved we truly are by the Lover of our Souls, our love begins to escape our hearts and leak out to those around us.

In essence, receiving His love helps you spread it to those who need it, because when you know deep down you are so loved, you can’t help radiating that love about you.

This love of God I am referring to?

Just plug love into the search engine of Bible Gateway or Bible Hub, and see how many verses come up… (684 in the ESV translation)…which averages to about 1.53 love verses a day!

Love matters to God.

So much so He has never stopped telling the world He loves them, starting with Adam & Eve, down to the children born this last second.

He has never stopped showing us His love, through creation and the cross.

He has never stopped feeling our pain, getting into the dirt & pain of our lives and offering us a hand up.

He will never stop. For just as He is eternal, so is His heart.  And it will never stop beating for the ones He loves. Ever.

Being pursued by such Love?

Believe it.
Embrace it.
Accept it.
Remember it.
Show it.


Love BEARS all things.

And He has shown us this kind of love that we are to have for one another…

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
Love never dies. 

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

May we press close to the One who loves us more than we can imagine, and continue to show His love to all around us, that they may come to know they are Beloved too.

When joy is a habit, loving people is a reflex.

unstoppable love which never ends

I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable— absolutely nothing 
can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.

Romans 8:38-39 MSG

Nothing can separate us from. God’s love.



I got a graphic glimpse of this revelation when I watched the movie The Passion of the Christ.

A love which didn’t let
hard hearts,
or misunderstandings
turn Him away from the path that lead Him to the cross.

A death which separated God from part of Himself, because He couldn’t stand being separated from US!

Think about that. God so loved us… part of His own family was put to death for our sin, because He couldn’t show us His love in any other way but the best- setting us free and taking back the keys to His kingdom. Demonstrating that love in a display so amazing and so powerful it ripped the separation between us forevermore!

Lavish love poured into a womb, poured out on the cross, then poured into our hearts for eternity…

What love!

We people tend to use the word love a lot in ways it was never designed for…. I love potato chips, I love that…

Love is not such an easily exchangeable word once you encounter His love.

Love comes with a price: being vulnerable before the one you love, and opening yourself up to the fact they may not love you in return.

This love God has for us? This love Jesus displayed for us? This love Holy Spirit stirs in our hearts?

God loves all of us, each and every one of us, whether we receive it or return it, always.

Imagine loving, and knowing who will love you in return.

How my heart aches knowing He loves every single person ever, died for each one, and knows that despite all His efforts to reach us with that love, some will ignore Him, brazenly break His heart with their actions and deliberate turning from Him.

No lover enjoys when someone turns away from you, changes their mind, cheats on you or abandons you.

No parent relishes the pain their kids go through when they refuse your help.

The weight of His love must be huge in its enormity, yet His love remains unstoppable in His pursuit of us all.

Once you decide to accept His love, there is nothing that can change His heart for you.

You become His, forever.

Nothing, ever, can change His love for you.

There is no place you can hide or run where His love won’t find you. He will have already run to greet you there with wide open arms.

If you are His, you will be loved by Him now and into eternity!

Once God decided humanity was in His plan, He never looked back from His love for us.

Take a moment today, and think over the cost of His love for you today.

Lent is a season of seeking Him, and historically giving up in order to see Him anew.

Give up your false belief that you are not worth His love this Lent.


Love’s value is based on the depth of love in the heart of the giver, not the recipient.

Oh how He loves us!

You are His beloved, and He will never stop singing that love over you, showing it to you or pouring it into your heart for the rest of your life, and into the next!


unstoppable love

Do you know you are worth it?

Did you know you were in the forefront of His mind when He went to the cross?

Do you know God will never stop pursuing you?

He thinks knowing you is worth more than all the pain and anguish, and death He faced.

You are exquisitely valuable to Him and He will not stop trying to tell you that message in the way you need to hear it…ever.

Is your built in USB so crowded with crappy messages that you have no space left to hear how unstoppable His love is for you?

Its time to erase the messages that only serve to leave you hungry & thirsty, and come to the One who can satisfy down to your very soul.

His love song continues to be sung by those who know this amazing, life altering truth…. God will never stop pursuing you, because He will never ever stop loving you.

If you can listen it his song on iTunes, Google music or YouTube today, let it seep into your mind, heart and soul.

You are loved without end. Forever.

Unstoppable Love:
Skylar & Kim Walker-Smith

Try to stop Your love and You would wage a war
Try to take the very thing You gave Your life for
You would come running 
Tear down every wall
All the while You’re shouting 
“My Love, you’re worth it all”.

God you pursue me with power and glory, Unstoppable Love that never ends. You’re unrelenting with passion and mercy, Unstoppable Love that never ends.

You broke into the silence and sang your song of hope
A melody resounding in the deep of my soul
You have come running
You tore down every wall
All the while you’re shouting, 
“My Love you’re worth it all”

God you pursue me with power and glory, Unstoppable Love that never ends. You’re unrelenting with passion and mercy, Unstoppable Love that never ends. X2

No sin, no shame, 
No past, no pain 
Can separate me from Your love
No height, no depth, 
No fear, no debt 
Can separate me from Your love

Your love, yeah

God you pursue me with power and glory, Unstoppable Love that never ends. You’re unrelenting with passion and mercy, Unstoppable Love that never ends.

Try to stop Your love and You would wage a war
