God's Love

Do you know how much God loves you? Yes, even you the sinner.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

We need to know that the love of Jesus was costly on His part, and is undeserved on ours. There is no one, not your husband, your wife, your children, or their children, not your mother, no one can compete with Him in affection.

"Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only Son into the world, that we might live through Him. Herein we love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought to also love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us." (I John 4:7-12)

Everyone believes that love is important thought or feeling. In reality, love is a choice or an action. (I Corinthians 13:4-7). God is love, He is the source of our love. Our love is brought forth by His love. He loved us so much that He sacrificed His Son to give us an example of what it means to love. Everything that He did in life and in death was that of love. Through the Holy Spirit, He gives us the power to love. The Holy Spirit lives in our heart so that it will make us more and more like Christ. When we have God's love inside of us it will always require a choice and action. Do you display your love, that love of God in the choices and actions in your life?

"And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God." (Ephesians 3:17-19)

    Very Nice post. I am wondering about certain supposed christians that i know of that claim to be all these wonderful things, patient, kind, fair, and above all they look to the lord for help daily, yet they do not show this attitude at their place of work. It is like they are a whole different person entirely. What advice would you give for someone who feels that it is hypocritical for these people to act as if they have two heads? How can one preach so loudly, and act against those strong words...I wonder?
