[Watch] What is Love? by Irvin Baxter

February 14, 2020   |   Category: Blog   |   Tags: , ,

As I struggled to put into words what love is, I remembered going to a prison to visit the son of one of my church members. In the waiting room, I saw 15 or 20 mothers all there to visit a wayward son that most others had given up on. I remembered my mother who made sure meals were always on the table, who did her best to provide clothes for me, who faithfully took me to church, who prayed for me. I thought about my dad who worked so hard all of his life. He didn’t do it for himself. He did it for me and my two sisters. He did it for his wife and for the God that he loved. I thought about Endtime partners that I have never met face to face. Yet, they faithfully send in donations month after month to support a cause they believe in. I thought about my three wonderful daughters and their husbands that have faithfully supported me in the ministry of Endtime. I’ve always known they would be there no matter what difficulties we faced. Then I thought about my wonderful wife, Judy. She has faithfully been by my side for 55 years. Whatever I have needed, she has tried to supply. She has loved me unconditionally. Finally, most of all, I thought about my wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ. He loved me when I didn’t care about Him. He left the splendors of heaven to die in my place on a cross so that I could have eternal life. He prayed for his crucifiers as He hung on the cross, saying “Father forgive them. They don’t understand what they are doing.”

As I tried to summarize the true meaning of love, everything I thought of had one common element: giving. Love doesn’t seek to get. It seeks to give.

I know that all of you in one way or another have those you love, that you share your life with. Don’t ever stop giving, because that’s what love is.

The last thing I want to say on this Valentine’s Day is don’t forget to tell the ones you love that you love them. Take the time to stop, look them in the eyes, and say, “I love you.”

    I have listened to your show for almost 30 years now. Living on a small fixed disability income makes it hard to send much but as I can, I do. I finally, after all these years was able to subscribe to your magazine for 2 years. I am also happy that you allow us to call into your show for answers to our many questions. Other ministers should offer this. I am so happy you do. May God bless you richly for all you do to spread his word and for keeping up with the prophecies of our day and age as they happen. Thank you so much Pastor Baxter.

    So many people have so much trouble defining Love and it amazes me that I never hear what the Bible says, “God is Love.” If God is Love, then Love is God and Love/God has 10 characteristics; they are trust, honesty, tolerance, gentleness, joy, defenselessness, generosity, patience, faithfulness and open-mindedness. If God/Love is all power in everything, everywhere all of the time, then God/Love IS everything REAL everywhere all of the time and it needs nothing but Itself, which of course includes all of us. And so if we exalt evil and follow evil we are lost, wandering in a falsehood, an illusion. Therefore, it is not a mystery we need to figure out and solve, it is a joy we can feel, share and follow.
