A Love That Is True


"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," (Romans 3:23). What is the glory of God, what is the standard of God's glory?

Jesus,
the glory of God,
never did wrong,
always did right,
and always from faith.

1) Sin is doing what you know is wrong. (1 John 3:4)
2) Sin is not doing what you know is right. (James 4:17)
3) Sin is whatever is not from faith. (Romans 14:13

The word of the LORD came to the prophet Ezekiel saying, "Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die." (Ezekiel 18:4). Is He speaking of the death of the body? He is speaking of the death of the soul in hell, "the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8)

The Lord God goes on to say that the righteous man will surely live (Ezekiel 18:5-9). But here is the problem; "there is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who never sins." (Ecclesiastes 7:20)

Jesus,
the glory of God,
never did wrong,
always did right,
and always from faith.

"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13). Jesus, the glory of God forgave the sins of His people. His people are all those who have repentance towards God and faith in the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Now this is true love, God is Holy, God is righteous, and God is just. In order for Him to forgive the sins of His people He had to first except their guilt upon Himself, and pay the penalty for their guilt which is death and hell, so that they could live. After taking death in their place forsaken of God, He was buried, and on the third day He defeated death and arose from the grave.

"For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11)
