“Whoever loves becomes humble. Those who love, so to speak, have pawned a part of their narcissism. Meaning self love that rises superior to everyone else,” Sigmund Freud.
Freudian psychoanalysis may be helpful, but being able to deeply love, without any self expectations, well that’s done through the newness of life that’s imparted to us through Jesus Christ.
When one experiences the newness of life in Christ, we take upon ourselves as a gift, His persona. It goes very much like this, “Do you not know that as many of us were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His death.”
Therefore, we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so, we also should walk in the newness of life.” (cp. Romans 6:3-4).
God Himself lives within the believer which allows believers to differentiate between the following. “What! ‘Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God! (cp. 1 Corinthians 6:19), It is a level above Freudian psychoanalysis that can’t match the Spirit filled believer because it’s superficial.
“Though I speak with the languages of men and angels, but have not love, I have become like sounding brass or a clanging cymbal, v. 1.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge, and though I have faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing, v. 2.
And if I away all my goods to feed the poor, and though I have all faith, so that I can remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing, v. 3.
Love suffers long and is kind, love does not envy, love does not brag, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth, bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, believes all things, endures all things, v, 4-7, 1 Corinthians chapter 13.
The perfect summation between psychoanalytical love and Christ imparted love.
It all starts with being a part of our Christ family. So if you are not one of us, join our family, by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then note verses 8-11, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.
