Bridget Strength, who works for the firm, furnished this verse along with a little information on what real love is all about.
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.
Bridget says a healthy definition of love is crucial to understanding the central message of the Bible. She says:
According to the Bible, love is not confined to sexuality, nor is it primarily a feeling at all. The Bible teaches that love is a commitment. As a commitment, love is not dependent of good feelings, but rather on a consistent and courageous decision to extend oneself for the well-being of another. That commitment then produces good feelings, not the other way around. Jesus became the perfect demonstration of God’s unconditional love for us by laying down his life for our benefit.
Faye B. Gaston, a friend from Union Springs, Alabama, also wrote in last month and sent in one of her favorite Bible verses. Faye’s personalized car tag reads “ALA POET” and she has published three books of her original poems. Faye noted that the word workmanship in English was translated from the Greek word for poem. She says:
We are God’s poem. It makes me very happy to know we are God’s poem, his work-of art. Our Creator God, the Godhead of the Trinity, loves us more than we can imagine.
This is Faye’s verse:
For we are His workmanship (“poiema,” Greek), created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Ephesians 2:10 KJV
I apologize for not being able to include all of the verses that were sent in for this issue. I appreciate all who responded to our request last month. Hopefully, this will continue to be area of the report that blesses our readers.
