This Love Spirals greeting card can make a great Valentine's Day card, or Anniversary card, but read on to learn the deeper meaning behind the artwork. The original artwork was created using mixed media (pen and acrylics) on canvas paper.

Love is one of the most powerful emotions, isn't it? But, it's not just an emotion it's also an action and a state of being.

I believe that we are able to love because the Living God has first loved us. When people get married, one of the most popular Bible readings is 1 Corinthians 13.

Why do we romanticise love in 1 Corinthians 13?

The Greek word used in this passage for the word love is agape – unconditional love. It’s the highest of all the versions of love. In our English language we only have one word for love, but in other languages, such as Greek, they use various words to describe the different forms of love. So, traditionally, we have romanticised this chapter to explain what type of love the author is describing. But, this is not the case. Of course agape is a good way to love ones spouse, but there will likely be other forms of love evident in a loving, faithful, committed, romantic relationship – such as erotic love, for example.

So, we can extend the love described in this chapter to the other people we know too. It’s this same love that we’re encouraged to love our neighbours, enemies, and God!

Agape is tough to do, we struggle to truly love with agape in our most intimate relationships, so how much harder is it to do so when it comes to our enemies!?!

When I think of my ‘enemies’ I find it really difficult to face the choice laid before me to extend agape to them. It’s a choice I often find myself disobeying. But, I’m determined to work on myself and learn to choose agape more often and for more people. Agape is unconditional, but that doesn’t mean that we should ignore the ‘bad stuff’ that people do.

Extending agape is just as difficult as extending forgiveness, but just as worthwhile. It doesn’t let the other person off the hook, it just releases us from the burden of bitterness so that we can focus on haling, recovery and our relationship with Abba-Jesus-Spirit.

It’s a lifelong journey of learning, practising, getting it wrong, and trying again. Full transformation and full ability of complete agape, I believe, are only completed at the time of Jesus’ second coming.

Blessings as you develop the gift of extending agape to others.
