THE LOVE OF GOD

READ: I John 4:7-10

“. . . God is love.”
I John 4:8

To describe the love of God would be one of the most difficult tasks in the world. It is something that a worldly mind will reject. It is something that a spiritual mind cannot comprehend. Many people ask this question: “Why would God love someone like me? If God knew all the things I’ve done then He wouldn’t love me.” The amazing thing is that He does love us, in spite of the fact that He knows everything about us. No matter what someone has said, done, or thought, God loved them to death, literally. Before mankind was ever doomed at the fall of Adam and Eve, the Lamb of God had been slain before the foundation of the world. Jesus has known throughout all eternity that to redeem man it would involve His death at the cross. He even said Himself that He could have prayed to the Father for twelve legions of angels to deliver Him, but He suffered and died for you and me.

Dear friend, whatever you do today, remember that you are surrounded by the love of God. Whenever you feel lonely or upset, remind yourself of just how much God cares about you. Whatever you do for others, showing God’s love should be your motivation. In your quiet time today, think of how much God loves you, then go show it to someone else.

Could we with ink the ocean fill, And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill, And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above, Would drain the ocean dry.
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, Though stretched from sky to sky.

THE LUST OF ADAM AND EVE ENDED WITH SIN.
THE LOVE OF GOD BEGINS WITH A SAVIOUR.
