GOD IS IN LOVE
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.John 15:13
I know over the years we have sang songs of our love to God and how in love we are with him, in turn we have also sang of his love for with various ways of describing from unending,to divine ,to even reckless. This songs are great and we thank God for them, as we spend more time with God’s word,we see the word as Letters from one Lover to his lover. God is in Love with you!
Now, don’t be quick to find some earthly examples you can use to exemplify the love,they will all fall short of how much Jesus is in love with us.
The greatest Proof? Rom.5.8 – But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. I assure there’s no other love story that beats this, dieing our one unworthy of your love.
A verse of the bible (1 John 4:8)made it clear that God is love, Love originated from God.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 explained all the qualities of Love(God). Love (God)is patience, Love(God) is kind and so on, This gives a better explanation that love originated from God. God’s love is forever, Humans love can turn to hatred overnight but God love is eternity.
The plan of redemption is the plan of love, Real love is sacrifice, According to 1 John 3:16 God gave His only Son for us , To live within His love and die for us , He took our guilt away, He made us righteous without our works and He gave us His Spirit.
The redemptive work of Christ is our resting place, In Christ Jesus, we’ve gotten God’s attention. We don’t only own God, we’re God’s righteous and glorious inheritance, He takes pride us.
The parable of the lost sheep in Matthew 18:10-13 explained how important a lost soul is to God , How much God loves us and how concerned He is about us.
Ways by which we can come to the knowledge of God’s love is
– Reading and studying the word by yourself:
Which means you must learn to spend time with God , Have a personal fellowship with Him
– Attending a local church : A local church that teaches about God’s love, death burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ because the teaching of grace has set us free and it sustains us.
Let this consciousness be in you, the God of the universe who is Love is in love with me.
