In the End Love Will Have the Final Word

The Greek language has seventeen words that describe the meaning of love. Love in English has many different meanings. It can have affectionate, benevolent, strong liking, romantic or sexual implications. The Hebrew word, 'aheb,' has a similar range of meanings.

God is the source of all our love. Loving God and loving people are so interrelated we cannot have one without the other. "God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. (NLT, 1 John 4:16).

Singer and song writer, Ricky Byers-Beckwith wrote a line in one of her songs, "In the end, love will have the final word." This beautiful phrase reminds us of the power of love. If ever there is a circumstance or a situation that you are concerned or worried about or troubled by you can remind yourself, "In the end, love will have the final word."

A Course in Miracles teaches that Love Is Letting Go of Fear. Gerald Jampolsky, MD, wrote, Love Is Letting Go of Fear, to teach us how to let go of fear and how to remember that our essence is love.
