Come back to your First Love
Updated: May 4
Hey today as this world is celebrating love day (valentine's day), I want to share the true meaning of love.
You may be thinking we know about true love but let me tell you if you don’t know WHO IS LOVE, you never know what love is. So stay with me till the end so you know about true love and your point of view will be changed.
In this world love is the word which is misused a lot and people say love you like hi and bye but they actually don’t mean it, as I was observing people around me they love you just because they want their work done or to satisfy their lustful desires and some are there who keeps on changing one GF/BF to others and keep on searching others people to fit in their wise list and never put any efforts in changing themselves.
When I was in school I had a girlfriend and it was attraction and I thought it was love when she left me I went to other girl to make her jealous then I went to PU college their I was thinking ok I will impress her and do time pass with her for few months and then I will go to other town for my study but I was failed to impress her and then I came to other town for my graduation here also the story was same I use throw pick-up lines to get girl so that I can show-off yah I too have a girlfriend and at this point I was very much desperate for a girl in my life and when I came in my final year I was able to impress a girl and we both came in relationship but I was not able to keep it healthy and end up doing all lustful things and at one point it came she wanted to get separated from me and then I was really frustrated and started to play with other feeling and hurting just because I was hurt and I was uncompleted I was trying to fit others in my life but eventually I end up broken completely, but one day I met someone who loves me so much and I want to share with you about that person.
Before telling about that person I want to tell you about types of love in Greek there are four types of love.
1. STORGI (AFFECTION) LOVE BETWEEN FAMILY
2. PHILIA (FRIENDSHIP) LOVE BETWEEN FRIENDS
3. EROS (EROTICISM) LOVE BETWEEN A COUPLE
4. AGAPE (UNCONDITIONAL LOVE) LOVE OF GOD
These are the types of love and these all types are connected to one love and that is AGAPI LOVE. So before understanding what the bible says about these loves.
First comes STORGI LOVE mean family love in 1 John 4:20 “those who say, I love God and hate their brothers and sisters are liars; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?” family love is something that we expression first in our lives and we got connected with them through affection and care which they show toward us they scold us but they support us to get back on our feet.
Next comes PHILIA LOVE means love between friends bible says in Proverbs 18:24 “One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” There is a quote “show me your friends I will show your future” yes when we surround ourselves with toxic people we end up toxic and get addicted to many things and destroy our lives, and fake friends teach you bad things and backbit about you in front of others and are nice in front of you, but a true friend he corrects you when you are doing something wrong and take your stand in your absence and always stand with you in your trouble and give you right consul and boost you to grow.
Here comes the love which everyone wants in their life EROS LOVE BETWEEN A COUPLE in the beginning when God created heavens and earth he created men then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” –Genesis 2:18 so God created women and called them husband and wife. When you get married you have to be the right person and get married when you are ready to take all responsibility because in this love romance, caring, understanding, bounding will be there and respect.
AGAPE LOVE this is the unconditional love of Almighty God who gave his life for our sins. I would like to say about this love like this, My life was completely messed I was a broken kid searching for love from other people so that they can fix my broken heart pieces but I was ending up getting more broken, and I was tired and I decided to be alone I will not love anyone and I started to hate love but here was the miracle happened in my life I was low in my mood and then JESUS spoke to me child come to me and give me all your broken pieces and I will give you a new one and which is filled with my unconditional love, peace, joy, kindness, patience, so I gave him my life and he started to change me and gave me a new heart which Is filled with his love which gives me strength in my weakness, joy in my trouble, peace in the storm.
My friend use to tell me, man, when you know the heart of the Lord you will not think of sin and it helped me face all the temptations and I told you about the types of love all love are connected. From the beginning till this day Jesus Love humankind and gave his life yet knowing that we rabble against him but still he loves us and waiting at our heart door and knowing if you open I can come in and be with you and have fellowship with you.
You know this world says I have fallen in love with this person but think about this you are walking and fall you get up and walk away right? So think if you fall get up because if you are not growing in love come out of that relationship because it is meant you to grow, And love is not just a word. Love is a verb it’s something we choose to do daily in our walk with Christ.
So the Love is Jesus when you know Him and love him completely and have his love in you, then you can love others how he loves you and it is written in the bible in John 13:34-35 “A New command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.” So love one another it may be your neighbor, enemy someone who has hurt you by someone who loves everyone.
This is the true meaning of Love, Jesus is the first love when you are filled with his love then you can pour your love in your family, friend, and in your soul mate. He is calling you today to come back to your first love, you may be broken he can fix you because he has created you if your mobile gets broken where do you take it? To the service center of that phone right, Likewise when your heart gets broke to get it to the one who is created it.
JESUS LOVES YOU, HE IS WAITING FOR YOU.
