爱未必感觉很好。。。 Love may not feel all that good…
Many times we have confused or mixed up love and feeling, thinking there is love only when we feel good about it, and if it does not have any feeling or if it feels bad, then the element of love is missing, so we think there is no need to continue to love in situations like that because it feels like an obligation, very fake or hypocritical…
Let me ask you, do you think God or Jesus always feels very good each time He loves us?
A completely holy God who hates sins chooses to love and embrace a filthy sinner, does that feel good?
Then rejected by sinners, humiliated, tortured, and crucified on the cross, does that feel good?
Even after becoming a Christian, still very often disobey or hurt His heart, does that feel good?
In fact, what good does it bring Him for loving people like us?
Not a single benefit!
Instead He has to help us solve unending problems, and yet we are not always grateful…
Does all that feel good? Is it worth it to love like that?
I think it must feel terrible, and I do not think we deserve one bit of His love!
Yet He chose and decided to love us, and will never leave or abandon us…
That may not feel so good, in fact we can definitely say the feeling is not good at all!
Then why does He still want to love?
Because… that is called real love.
So He said, if we truly have love in our hearts, then we should love others like the way He loves us…
Are there people around you that you “need to” love but it does not feel all that good to love them?
Look to the Lord…
