GOD, AND HIS KIND OF LOVE!

LOVE: one of the sweetest words we know, and also one of the most misinterpreted...

By nature, everyone desires to love and to feel loved; and this desire was put there by God our Creator, Who Himself is called Love, amongst many other names which He is called in the Bible...

Acknowledging the fact that God created man in His own image, in other words, the original man was made as an extension of God's person and personality; therefore most of the inborn desires that are found in man are equally found in God; such as the desire to love and be loved, and the desire to be appreciated or glorified...

Man has always been the object of God's love from the beginning of time till this day... So even when Adam fell by his sin of disobedience, God's love made provisions for man to be restored back to a loving relationship with Him through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ... God in Christ gave Himself for the redemption of mankind, which remains yet the greatest show of His love for humanity...

Indeed, God's love is match-less and immeasurable, and there is always an emptiness in every man's life which only God's kind of love can fill... And even though we may sometimes find ourselves in situations that seem to say otherwise about God's love, our situations or circumstances do not negate God's love for us regardless... And His love is the sole reason humanity still exists in spite of the rebellion of many against God, from individuals to societies, and the world at large...

We may also struggle to find the balance between God's love for humanity and the many tragedies and evils that befall mankind including God's own people... However, the reality remains that God's ArchEnemy (Satan) right from Adam has not only been jealous of the position of authority in which God placed man (a position not even the Angels occupy), but he also keeps working overtime alongside his agents (both demonic and human) fighting against the establishment of God's Kingdom and to seek to prove God's love to be a lie...

In a similar contrast, we may struggle to draw the line between God's love and God's justice system in which actions and consequences exist... However, we do know that God has put spiritual laws in place which applies to all and sundry including Himself, and except for the sovereign act of God's mercy, every disobedience or default against such laws would attract a commensurate consequence; because truly God is love, but God is also just...

God's love indeed is not just match-less, but also such that as many who truly understand it, cannot but receive it, and as many who have received it cannot but express the same kind of love towards others; for in Christ Jesus, God gave His best and gave His all, and all He requires of us to reciprocate His love is to believe it, receive it, and display the same... 

For the Scriptures tells us:

"...For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him..." 
John 3:16-17 (NIV)

"...Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God..." 
John 1:12 (NIV)

"...Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." 
1 John 4:7-8 (NIV)

God is Love, and God's kind of love is only borne by the Spirit of God, and everyone who is born of God has the Spirit of God, therefore has the capacity to love like God...

So, I am by this means inviting as many reading this who are yet to accept God's love in Christ Jesus, to decide and do so today, so as to begin a loving relationship with our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ; for in Him God's love is perfected, and in Him is man's only hope of escaping eternal damnation and spending eternity with God... 

Decide today! And if you need someone to guide you, please send us a message!

Thanks for sharing with me!
