Exploring the Intersections of Faith and Life

Love – Daily Meditation

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,[a] that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

John 3:16

 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:13

Probably the most common word to describe God is love.  Love in our culture is most often associated with a feeling, but in the Bible, love is not so much a feeling, as an action.  God is described as love:  the one who loves us so much that God gave up God’s only son to death for us; the one who frees us from slavery; the one who puts up a shield around us when our enemies attack; the one who walks with us, and heals us, and teaches us, and casts out demons.  Jesus also described love, not as a feeling, but as an action, especially the depth of love that would move a person to give up his or her own life for the sake of a friend.  We can say the words all we want, but if the words are not backed up by actions, what power is really there in the word?

  • What was your closest moment to God today?
  • When today did you feel in the presence of love?
  • If you did not feel it, for we don’t always feel it, did you notice anyone acting with love toward you or another today?
  • How did you act in love today?

  1. Of all the brainwave frequencies displayed by the human brain, perhaps the most fascinating is the Gamma wave, around 40 Hertz. When in a Gamma state, the brain seems capable of remarkable synergy, exhibiting a high level of holistic functioning that unites multiple senses, perceptions, and memories. In short, we become almost super-human. Interestingly, this state is commonly observed in experienced Tibetan monks engaging in a “loving-kindness” meditation. As we shall see, Gamma waves are not the only benefit of this practice.
