February 2021 Oracle



Love is a wonderful thing, especially when we are blessed to be recipients of it. I love watching Patrick Mahome ’ s win for the Kansas City Chiefs! Agreed that is exciting and fun but a bit frivolous compared to real love. I love my wife Karen with a deep and everlasting love going on 60 years and counting. It is and has been a wonderful Christ filled love. The Bible uses three words for love in the Greek language. EROS, a physical sensual love , erotic, shared by two people who are physically attracted to each other. PHILEO, a brotherly or sisterly friendship or love of a thing or place. I love Chapel as many of you have shared with me also. Praying we have great Chapels next season at ORPS. Phileo love is so strongly demonstrated with fellowship and being together. AGAPE, the love God has for us. Romans 5:8 “ God demonstrated His Love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners He died for us. ” This Love for us is undeserved and given without any guarantee of return. His love brings out the best in a person who has accepted it and patterned this love after His example and life. Jesus love never fails, is patient, kind and is not jealous. That love does not brag and is not arrogant. 1 Corinthians 13 states that there are three things to build our lives on: “ now abideth faith, hope and love, but the greatest of these is love. Of the three faith has priority but love has preeminence. Pursue love! Happy Valentines Day. I hope you will watch a video I suggest; love faith and hope will be heard in each of them ….
