Our world revolves around love. How you view things and perceive people, all comes back to love. “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good. Let him seek peace and pursue it” (1 Peter 3:10-11). People, especially teenagers, build their own view of what “love” is. I can assure you what you may think it is, is in no comparison to how much Christ loves you. He loved us so much that he died for us, he suffered an unimaginable death, showing us undeserving love.
Jesus spoke to his would be followers about love: “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: you shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these” (Mark 12:30-31). This verse is calling you to love the Lord with all of your heart. No matter the circumstances, pain or suffering you may or may not be encountering, live your life for God. To live for God is to love one another, enemy, friend, or family. Love as God loves you. Doing so, your heart will be open to Christ, and you may view love a little differently.
