The LOVE chapter…..LOVE chapter,
We’ve heard it o’er and o’er;
What does it mean…exactly,
It is a metaphor! (God is LOVE.)
LOVE in its purest form,
Is who our Father is;
To be truly like Him,
Is to live…as He lives.
And, just how is that…we ask,
The answer comes…loud and clear;
It’s written in His Word,
To those who have eyes to see…ears to hear.
LOVE suffers long and is kind,
And, who has suffered more;
His heart broken,
Still, never trying to even the score?
And, has He ever envied,
Or taught us to do that;
Still, we do it…don’t we,
‘Tis, not according to His format.
He….who is LOVE,
Doesn’t parade around…all puffed-up;
Humbled Himself…did He,
That He might lift us up.
Father is never rude,
A Gentleman in every way;
Always wanting what is best for us,
From this goal…He’ll not stray.
He’ll not provoke us,
For what “we” sow…”we” reap;
His thoughts are always towards us,
All His promises…He will keep.
A “positive” Father…is He,
Sees the end…from the beginning;
Rejoices always in the Truth,
He is set on winning.
Certainly, Father has borne all things for us,
He believes, hopes, and endures;
Don’t we want to be just like Him,
And, we can…His Word assures.
For…LOVE never fails,
And, God is LOVE…we know;
LOVE is edifying…always giving,
In His LOVE…we want to grow.
Everything we know of,
It shall all pass away;
Only temporary…are they,
None of it shall stay.
When LOVE is fully come,
All of Father being seen…not “us”;
God shall be all and in all,
For, in Him…we did, completely, trust!
