Lookin’ for Love In All the Wrong Places?

A sad, old country song once mournfully stated, “I’m Lookin’ for Love In All the Wrong Places.” This sentiment is all too accurate for many people in this world. However, love is not found through advice online or from magazines, self-help books, bars, or other people. The truth of the matter is that GOD is the Source of genuine, true love through Jesus Christ, His Son, and the place to look is within the pages of the Bible. It begins with accepting the death of Jesus Christ on the cross as the greatest act of love ever shown. He died to pay our sin debt in full. And when we believe in Him and repent/turn from our sins, all the mess we’ve made of our lives is washed away. Our sins are forgiven, and God will remember them no more. Now, His love is poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit, enabling us to love Him in return and to receive and give love to others. If we don’t have Jesus Christ and His love in us, our lives are empty, and we are poor, needy, and wretched. The only One who can satisfy our longings is the One who died for us on the cross. His love for us is beyond all explanation and human comprehension. Open your heart to Jesus today. Your life will never be the same again.
