The Power of Love

Love is a powerful emotion. Albert Einstein shared in a letter to his daughter, Lieserl, that ‘love is power because it multiplies the best we have.’ He wrote that some fear love because it is the only energy in the universe that man has not learned to drive at will. Through this letter, Einstein could not help but define love through an equation. He calculated that love is E = mc2: energy to heal the world multiplied by the speed of light squared, and ‘then we will arrive at the conclusion that love is the most powerful force there is because it has no limits.’ Einstein was more accurate than what he knew. But we rest in God’s love which is the most powerful driving force, with the ability to heal with no limits, expressed through the sacrifice of His one and only son. God is love! God’s love is powerful!

God told us that his greatest gift is His love. Now that is powerful! To know God is to learn what real love is sacrificial, merciful, and unconditional. His love teaches us to measure how we should be treated. We also understand that to love others best, we must first love Him. On our own and without seeking God daily, we will miss the mark in many ways, including relationships. Without God, our earthly relationships will not have a chance to withstand the daily struggle of sin.



At Hope Clinic, we serve many who may not know the love of Jesus or are so broken that they don’t know they are seeking empty love from another just as lost or broken as themselves. They desire the affection of another to fill their lives with love and happiness. In return, they may experience hurt, rejection, or abuse. As they seek one relationship after another, they are missing out on the most powerful, fulfilling love of all, God’s love. There are many reasons someone would continue seeking another with continual disappointment. Still, the simple answer is that they do not know God. Many of those we help are mishandling present conflict, past hurts, trauma, and unhealthy relationships. They can make those things the objects of their lives, and love becomes distorted as they hold those things tightly. They are missing the one attachment of God’s love to heal it all. Yes, there is past hurt, unresolved pain, and even incredible trauma, but God is ready for them and for us to lay it all down at His feet. It is comforting to know that if God is love and if God created us, then we were created by love. His words promise, “I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11). His plan includes healing, forgiveness and resolve if they will accept His gift of love.

Serving Him for LIFE,
