Let your love for each other be real and from the heart.

Let us consider the difference between romantic and real love. The difference between candle-lit dinners and pragmatic conversations about finances or baked beans on toast.

Real love, from the heart. God’s love in the messiness of a baby born in a stable, in fleeing a country with a toddler, in losing a child in a crowd, giving yourself over to God’s plan for you, eating, drinking, sleeping, talking, walking with people, the joy of someone saying’ ‘I believe in you’, the sorrow of knowing someone will deny you, suffering, and dying for the love of God and of the people. Rising from suffering and death.

This is the love of God, whose Son rose from the dead. Real love, from the heart.
