GOD IS LOVE
God is love…He can do nothing else nor be anything else but to love you and me…!!!
And it isn’t just a case of being fond of you, or just care a lot about you…
No, His Love is a Sacrificial Love…!!
A love that will lay His PRECIOUS, PURE, HOLY, INNOCENT LIFE down for you and me…!!!
But it is even more than that – 1 Cor 13:4-8 gives us all the keys of everything this Love is…!!!
And I love verse 8 that ends it all, with “Love can not fail”!!!
1Cor 13:4-8 Love suffers long, and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up, Does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil; does not Rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never failes: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
But then verse 13 saying that this LOVE is the Greatest…!!!
1Cor 13:13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Meaning our FAITH & our HOPE can & must be Anchored in HIS LOVE..!!
But then 1 John 4:18 says that this Perfect/Mature LOVE, is what casts out all fear…even the fears that are caused by doubt & unbelief..!!
And this same verse ends with “for those who still fears, have not been made perfect in His love yet”…
Meaning, we haven’t matured in this Perfect sacrificial love of God yet..!!!
1John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Now I know….This is just too deep to understand or grasp it to its fullest meaning or depth..!!!
It is a LOVE you have to sit and meditate on, drinking it in, just to understand it a little bit…
For Knowing that God loves us this much, brings me to my knees, adoring Him, Worshipping Him, and appreciate Him so much, that I only want to obey Him, and work for Him, laying down my life, hopes and dreams, wanting only His WILL being fulfilled, and His Kingdom to come..!!!
For He is truly JUST GOOD!!
And He only deserves to be worshipped…nothing else..!!!
He does not deserve to be disobeyed, or to be laughed at, mocked, scorned, or to be rejected in any way, neither to be abused/used only for our own desires and selfish ways…!!
That type of behavior and false expectations we have of our Lord, just shows how childish we as a human race are, and How Mature He really is.. That He doesn’t walk away from us, nor reject us…But instead, He is just quietly and patiently waiting for us to come in line, and to come to the understanding of how much He really loves us..!!
What a God we serve..!!!
So let us not cause Him more pain and heartache, than what He hasn’t been through for us on the cross already…Instead, let’s get our act together, and change our lives instead, and start worshipping Him for Who He Really is, obeying His commandments, and cleanse ourselves in His Blood and become Mature Sons & Daughters of our Father’s Kingdom…!!!
