Speaking The Truth in Love … It’s All About Love

We’ve got CDs, tapes and videos,
radios and TV shows
Conferences, retreats and seminars
We’ve got books and magazines to read
on everything from A to Z
And a web to surf from anywhere we are
But I hope with all this information
buzzing through our brains
That we will not let our hearts forget
the most important thing isLove love love love love …
it’s all aboutLove love love love love

Everything else comes down to this
Nothing any higher on the list than love
It’s all about love

Now they’re fighting in the Middle East
and they’re fighting down on 7th street
And there are fights in my own house on given days
It’s like something’s lurking deep inside
that can’t seem to be satisfied
But life was not meant to be lived this way
Cause it’s true for every man and woman,
every boy and girl
That our only hope for living here
together in this world is …Love love love love love …
it’s all aboutLove love love love love

Everything else comes down to this
Nothing any higher on the list than love
This is the reason we were made
To know the love of our creator
And to give the love He’s given us away
Yeah, the Maker and the Father and the God of everything
He says to …Love love love …
He says love love loveLove love love …
’cause after all it’s all about loveGod says …Love love love love love
…it’s all aboutLove love love love love

Everything else comes down to this
Nothing any higher on the list than love
’cause after all it’s all about love.
(Steven Curtis Chapman, All About Love)

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trust, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails
And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love.
But the greatest of these is love! (I Corinthians 13, The New International Version)

...and I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that suspassses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God….(Ephesians 3)
This is the message that we have heard from the beginning: We should love one another. This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. Let us not love with words only, but with actions and truth.
We love …. because He first loved us. (I John)

What God is teaching me … When they know that we would lay down our lives for our brothers, they’ll know that we love them enough to tell them the truth! … it really is ALL about love!
