DEMONSTRATING THE LOVE OF GOD 2

“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: The love of God to man is expressed in the gift of Christ.

The love of God to Man us expressed in the gift of Christ. Many people claim to love but do not have the ability to prove their love. Men love because of what they stand to benefit, others love those who have already shown them kindness. Oh, how conditional is the love of man! Unfortunately, when the desire is not met, disappointment sets in. In contrast, the love of God is unconditional. That is why He sent Jesus to die for us in order to make us alive in Him. Christ was made sin, so that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21). According to Romans 5:8 (NLT), God sent His great love for us so that while we were yet condemned sinners, Christ died for us. God loves us the way we are. He used His own love to destroy your sin (Romans 3:10-11). We did not love him, yet God loved us by covering us with His love. Jesus Christ says that whosoever believes and trusts in his love shall not perish but have eternal life. You just have to believe in His love. In his love, there is life, wealth, riches, healing and perfection (Isaiah 53:3-5). So, everything you need in this life and here after is found in His love. You should wisely believe in that love. Salvation is a total package – In him, you have peace, love, joy. Men only love when there are to gain respect. Once a woman receives care, she feels loved. To Men, when there receive respect, they feel loved. Once they’re deprived from them, they no longer feel loved.

However, the scriptures do not define respect this way. If Men had love, the scriptures would not have deliberately instructed them to love their wives. Agape is the extravagant love that God pours on Man. In this love, your color, height, nationality, educational background, social and economic backgrounds do not matter. The only standard for this love is Christ crucified and Christ resurrected. If you can have the love of God, then you have everything. It is not your love that counts; it is God’s love that matters

INSTRUCTION: You are under a command to believe in the love of God

CONFESSION: Lord, I believe in your love. By this knowledge, I stand justified in you, in Jesus Name, Amen

QUOTE: It is not your love that counts; it is the love of God that counts.
