When did love win…

This morning our youth Pastor given the platform, and he preached a very good sermon. He spoke on love, Gods (agape) love, which is not the same as what people personally believe love is and at the end he made a statement which struck me. He was saying that this wasn’t a sermon about being for or against anything, it was about what (who) true love really is and not to get it confused with all the other interpretations we as humans put on it. He said ” when did love win? Love won 2000 years ago when Christ Jesus died on the cross.” 1 John 4:10 ( NLT)  “This is real love – not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his son as a sacrifice to take away our sins”.  Now to me, that is the thought to start with when faced with the questions and the pressures of this ever changing world. It’s not about how I define love, but “who” love really is.
