The past few days I was really just overwhelmed with God’s love. I cannot contain it any longer and I know God did not intend His love to be contained, His love is to be shared so here we go.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
God although the world does not know Him loved the world. He delights in His creations, He delights in His people and He cannot bear eternity without them, without US. Yes, He is our Creator but He doesn’t want our relationship with Him to end there, HE LONGS TO BE OUR FATHER. And because of the sacrifice Jesus did, He is.
God wants to be with us forever but with our sins it is impossible for us to spend eternity with God. Yet, God in His great love made a way to give us eternal life. He came. 2 Corinthians 5:21 God made Him who had no sin be sin for us, so that we may become the righteousness of God.
Love is the reason Jesus came, Love is the reason He suffered, Love is the reason He died, and LOVE IS THE REASON HE OVERCAME.
1 John 3:1a See what great love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!
Crazy, isn’t it? JESUS CHRIST the only begotten Son died because of love. He took the full cup of the wrath of God so that we may be called Children of God. We are made right with the Father because of the love of Christ.
God’s love is greater than anything we can imagine. His love is the perfect love and amazingly it is freely given to us; because of that there is no power that can separate us from God.
Romans 8:38-39 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
1 John 4:17 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
Amazing. I don’t even have words to say anymore.
O Heavenly Father,
Thank You. Thank You for the love that is beyond limits. Thank You for even though You knew me perfectly in my sins You loved and cared for me. I am in awe and just blown away with Your great love. Thank You for loving me, for giving me the life I am not worthy to live. Thank You my God for calling me Your daughter. Forever will I worship You. In Jesus’ glorious name. Amen
