The Love I Know

He says it is love; I say it is not

The love I know rejoices with the truth – the truth that is constant and unchanging

The love I know is devoid of lust but is just

The love I know is not fleeting but for keeping

The love I know hates evil and deceit

The love I know is obedient to what is good and right

The love I know does not depart from the Word of God but fights the flesh that says otherwise

The love I know acts on what is true and wise

The love I know stands up for the good and protects

The love I know is not selfish

The love I know accepts you as new when you ask for forgiveness

The love I know is not self-seeking – it always looks out for another

The love I know seeks the Father’s will

The love I know is Jesus

and He loves me

this I know
