THE REALITY OF GOD’S LOVE

“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

LIGHT FOR NOW:

God’s love to man is not a feeling but Christ.

The love of God is different from human’s love. Men love others based on what they can get. Men’s love is conditional, temporary and emotional. The day you stop giving them what they want, they stop loving you. The good news is that God’s love is not a feeling. God does not have reason(s) for loving us. His love for us is eternal. The love of God is not a reward for our good deeds. We do not even need to be good to earn God’s love. God did not wait for us to be good before He started loving us. He is not trying to love us, he had already loved us. That is why Romans 5:8 says “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”. God had already loved us while we were still hopeless, helpless and useless. From our anchor scripture, Christ is the love of God towards man. Christ is the embodiment of God’s love. When you receive Christ, you have received God’s love. Christ is the love of God manifest, dispensed and expressed. The love of God is the sacrificial work of Christ. You can only comprehend the love of God when you are born again. This is because the day you got born-again, you conform to Christ. God becoming a man was the love of God for man. As a believer, you are in God’s love because you are in Christ and Christ is the love of God. Christ paid for us to become the beneficiaries of God’s love. The love of God is explained in the grace of God. The grace of God is the expression of God’s love. Christ is the love of God. Hallelujah!

INSTRUCTION:

Stay in God’s love.

PRAYER:

Father, thank you for your love towards me, in Jesus name!

QUOTE: Love does not have reason(s).
