L is for Love

It’s interesting that I have reached the L for Love in the ABC’s for Christian Living when Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. There is so much to say about love that I could spend days on end writing and would not finish. It’s the subject that will take us into eternity.

God is LOVE.

God has given the world the ultimate proof of his LOVE. Not that he needs to prove anything! God so LOVED the world that he gave himself as a sacrifice of LOVE.

God gave us a LOVE story—yes, the Bible is God’s love story to the world.

LOVE is the only debt we should NEVER get rid of. You know how popular it is to work on being debt-free!

“Pay all your debts, except the debt of love for others. You can never finish paying that! If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill all the requirements of God’s law” (Romans 13:8, NLT).

“Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs” (Proverbs 10:12).

compassionate
merciful
patient
truthful

proud
jealous
immoral

negative

“Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds” (Hebrews 10:24).

Let every day of the year be like a big Valentine!

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
