Steadfast Love

"For I desire and delight in dutiful steadfast love and goodness, not sacrifice, and the knowledge of and acquaintance with God more than burnt offerings." Hosea 6:6

 What is love? When a woman is raised without true love she doesn't know what it is, how to recognize it. To her it might be attraction, infatuation, sentimentality,affection or selfishness. She might mistake any of these for the real thing.  "How will I know?" How will I know if he really loves me? How do I know if it is the Real thing?

Love gives. Time, itself, possessions.

Steadfast defined means - firmly fixed: not moving, constant: not fickle or changing.

" But God shows and clearly proves His (own) love for us by the fact that while be were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us." Romans 5:8

Christ endured the pain and humiliation of the Cross so that, it we choose to invite Him to come into our body and be one with our spirit we would never be alone and without Love.

If you want to know what true love is, ask Jesus to come into your body, mind and spirit.


"Lord Jesus, I ask you to come into my body, mind and spirit. I confess that I am a sinner and that I need you. I believe that you died for me so that I could live with You and the Father of Love forever." "Amen.

May God Bless You Richly,
