Love

God as wonderful and mysterious as he is, how would you describe him? Not that you could ever put God into a box because there are things of God that are secret he is so vast that our finite minds cannot even begin to grasp Him. The Bible says "God is Love." (1John 4:8) "God is Love" all of the love that exist in the world came from the creator God because "God is Love". It is his very character to love. God created the universe because of love and even though man rejected Him He has provided us a way out of this evil world because of His love. God Himself came in the man Jesus Christ and died a sinner’s death on the cross for a crime he didn’t commit; he took upon Himself your sins and mine. That my friend is love! “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13) God offers everlasting life to all who will receive it and all you have to do is repent and put your trust in Jesus Christ. No longer trust in your own goodness but trust in the goodness of Jesus to save you on the Day of Judgment and admit you are a sinner you’ve broken God’s commands. Jesus said in (Luke 24:47) “There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.” If you do that you will move from death to life and will receive the Holy Spirit of God. God’s very own Spirit will come into you and make a home with you. “And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us.” (1 John 4:13)

“God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.” (1John 4:16) I’m not talking about the kind of love the world has but I’m talking about a perfect love that defies all understanding. I’m talking about a kind of love that a human being is only capable of when you have the spirit of God living in you. People will often say that they love a certain person but what they really mean is they like the way that person makes me feel. The Bible says it’s easy to love someone who loves you or is kind to you. (Luke 6:32) But Jesus said to love everyone. Everyone! Is that possible to love everyone no matter who they are what they say how they think their belief system no matter how they look. Jesus said to “love your enemy! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you.” (Luke 6:27-28) Are we cable of this kind of love? Left to our own devises we are not, human beings all of us are selfish self seeking people bent on satisfying our own wants and desires. “For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly.” (Romans 16:18 NKJV) So are we cable of following the Golden Rule: “Do to others as you would like them to do to you.” (Luke 6:31) Are we capable of loving everyone? By ourselves I say no but if you are a child of God you have The Spirit of God living in you. If “God is Love” then you are capable of unspeakable amounts of love for all people. Jesus Said: “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)
