This I Believe- Love
The definition of love states that it is a deep, tender ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person such as that arising from, kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness. How can one four-letter word hold so many characteristics and have so many dimensions to it? When you think of love, what do you think about? A music producer would have the adoration of music. An NBA player would have the passion and fondness of basketball. A newly married husband would have the love and tenderness of his new wife. What do I believe in? I believe in love.
Let’s look at the spiritual dimension of love. Many scriptures in the Bible speak of it. “For God so love the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever shall believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16. This verse in the Bible clearly states that God sent His son, Jesus Christ to the world to take care of our transgressions and our iniquities. Another verse in the Bible is a verse that all should be familiar with, considering it is one of the Ten Commandments. “Thou shalt not avenge, not bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am the Lord.” Leviticus 19:18. Many songs express the love of God or express how much His children love Him. “I love you Lord, and I lift my voice, to worship you, oh my soul, rejoice! Take joy, my King, in what You hear, and let it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear.” This song brings back memories for me because I remember I would go to church when I was a little girl, and I would hear my mother sing this song in the choir stands, and when we would go home, it would stay stuck in my head all day. This song and many more songs not only reminded me of how much I love God, but how much I love others around me.
Music makes a person listen to the lyrics, think about the message in the song, and relate to the song....
