Love is Dangerous

Posted on February 11, 2013 · Posted in Culture, Worldview

To love is to identify with Christ. To identify with Christ is to invite the same opposition that he invited. Biblical love does not bode well with a world that is in love with itself. Committing to love is committing to war. Love is not for the faint of heart. To truly love nothing less than the power of the Holy Spirit will suffice. True love means a commitment to die to yourself.
