Live in Love
I John 4:7 “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.”
There was an old song released in 1965 written by the team of Hal David and Burt Bacharach entitled “What the World Needs Now is Love, Sweet Love.” That song would later become the anthem of the pacifist movement… and it is of course a secular pop song… but there is much truth in the lyrics of the song.
Hal David wrote the lyrics and Burt Bacharach wrote the melody. Hal David said he wrote the chorus one day on his way to Manhattan to co write with Burt Bacharach… David said, “the first two lines just came to me”
Over the course of the next few weeks he had finished the song. The truth of the it is that this world DOES need love… the Love of God… and it is up to us to demonstrate it.
Determine in your heart that you are going to spread the Love of God to everyone you meet… Beloved… let us love one another… in these last days… let us live in love.
