Am I Love?

Am I love?

I heard this question in passing on the radio the other day. Read this part carefully. It was not, "Am I loved" but rather, "Am I Love?"

I have to confess that I knew the answer to the question immediately.

No. In that moment, I was not love.

That morning my husband sent me a quick reminder text. As I was typing my smart aleck response, I could hear the still small voice telling me that a simple "OK" was the appropriate response.

I ignored the voice.

My remark was not taken well and it began our day together with tension rather than peace.
Was my remark worth it? No.
Did my hubby feel loved? No.

Could I say, "yes, I am love?" No.

I have been chewing on this mentally for a day or two now. "Am I love..."

The truth is that only Jesus personifies love.  But if I love Him shouldn't I be a channel for love?

Jesus said, they would know that we are His disciples by our love.

How about you. If you asked everyone in your life, "Am I love?" How would they answer you?

I am challenged by this today!

Blessings to you and yours. Share your thoughts in the comments below!

  1. Don't you love the way the Holy Spirit convicts us of our less than Christ-like behavior & attitudes. Oh for the grace and sweetness to be like our Savior at all times. I do identify with your findings to Bekki.... The good news is, when we are less than loving, we can confess and ask forgiveness not only of God but also of the one with whom we have been unkind and unloving. That is hard in our flesh, but I have found if I will be obedient to what the Spirit is challenging me to do, I am unloving, less often. Thanks for sharing your heart. I love and adore you!

  2. Bekki, what a challenging question to ask ourselves, if we are being a channel for Jesus' love! Like you, some days I have to say no. Thankfully there is forgiveness and second chances with our Father. Thanks for sharing and for linking up to Testimony Tuesday!
