             What is love? I remember a time when "I love you" was the hardest phrase to say to the person you really had feelings for because you knew when you said those words it would change the course of your relationship forever. But what is the true meaning of love?.
             "The dictionary defines love as a feeling of strong personal attachment induced by sympathetic understanding or by ties of kindred; ardent affection for one's children; man's adoration for God; strong liking; fondness; good will, al love of learning; love of country." All of these definitions convey the outward appearance of love. When looking at love that we need to take an inventory of our feeling to find out if we are truly displaying the type of love that God calls agape love. The bible says that God first loved us, but if we do not return that love to Him the relationship may diminish. .
             Since the beginning of time God has always given man a choice or free will. We have a free will to love Him. A free will to obey Him. And a free choice to do His will. As a matter of fact God does not even force His love upon us. Even in personal relationships love cannot be forced. If love is forced, it usually results in the person .
             rejecting the love altogether. .
             Christian love does not demand love in return, but it does open the pathway to receive love if love wants to be given. We sometimes assume that the person knows that you love them but we don"t tell them or show them on a regular basis. You can certainly show a person that you love them, but if you do not tell them they may not feel that you are comfortable with letting them know out loud your feelings for them. Often times this can lead to the other person feeling neglected, sometimes without intention. Even in our relationship with Christ we should learn to express our love for Him in more ways. We could volunteer more for projects in church; be more faithful in our giving; even attend the services on a regular basis and pray to Him more.
