The followers of Jesus have different names for love
based upon the Hebrew of the Old Testament.
Common sense tells us what love is and what love
isn’t. For instance, if someone says that they ‘love’
you, but their deliberate actions cause you pain, it
is probably a good idea to step back and take time
to consider your position. Taking time to be with
Jesus will help you know if they have misunderstood
what love is, or if your hurt is as a result of love
I Cor 13 also provides instruction. It isn’t all about ‘feelings’ - true love has
to be worked at, crafted and made a discipline.
This page is about finding love. Love can be friendship between people of the same
sex, or the opposite sex. Wholesome loving friendship is a gift.

A Sad Tale
I committed my life to Christ at the age of 40. I started returning to ‘church’ at
the age of 39. I found that I was to old for the ‘young people’ group and to young
for the older groups. That was my particular situation. I found myself befriended
by older Christian women. I was glad of Christian fellowship. I heard the scripture
Matthew 6:33 a number of times. It made sense and I figured I was in the Lord’s hand
and He would meet my needs in His perfect time.
Then I would ask how long they had been on their own (as many of them were divorced,
or widowed) and what came back disturbed me. Twelve years, sixteen years and such
numbers and I would ask what practical ways they were employing to find someone to
love and be loved by. The answer was usually, an embarrassed presentation of well
trodden lines, such as, ‘ if it is God’s will, I will find someone’.
