We live in a society that talks constantly about love. It’s in popular songs, in Sunday morning services, even in motivational business meetings, but what do we mean by "love?" For us it's often a sentimental, warm feeling, but in the New Testament it’s the agony of Christ stretching out His arms on Calvary as His enemies mock and taunt Him to come down off the cross and prove Himself. Want to join a universal family based on love? Don't join the crowd singing, "What the world needs now is love sweet love, not just for one, but for everyone." Admit you're in the crowd of sinners who rejects Jesus. Turn away from this arrogant pride and humbly cry out with the thief on the cross, "Remember me!" and then you can sing with the true lovers, those who love God and His Son, forever. This is the reason the Apostle Paul attacked the divisions among us, not with some sentimental words about loving each other, but with the power of the foolishness of the cross.
