live in love.

I'm excited. And inspired by a post over at this blog about love.
You see, today is the first day of the rest of my life.
I was doing all the "Christian" things -- reading my Bible, praying, being "nice". But I forgot the one, the most important thing --
LOVE
That's what I have to do. The decisions I make -- if they're all about me and what I want, they're not demonstrating love. 

What if there's a bigger picture? What if I'm missing out? What if there's a greater purpose that I could be living right now? I don't want to miss what matters, I want to be reaching out. Show me the greater purpose so I can start living right now, outside my own little world. -- Matthew West, My Own Little World 
 I'm not the only one here. There's a world of lives out there. If I live in love, if you live in love -- only then, I believe, can we change the world.

  3. Emii, thank you for posting this... the life of a christian really comes down to LOVE. May He bless you as you continue in THAT legacy, the legacy of Christ, who LOVED sinners and the hurting. You will do great things in His power :)
