EXCEEDING LOVE

GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN THAN THIS, THAT A MAN LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS……BEHOLD, WHAT MANNER OF LOVE THE FATHER HATH BESTOWED UPON US, THAT WE SHOULD BE CALLED THE SONS OF GOD: (JOHN 15:13, 1JOHN 3:1)

The story was told of a rich man who had two sons. The younger son, like a bastard and a wayward child, went to his father and collected his inheritance, only to take it away from his father’s care and wasted it all. Then like a plague, he became afflicted with poverty and want. He could neither feed himself nor afford an accommodation. In order to keep body and soul together, he sought for employment in a piggery. What a great demotion! He moved from a ROYAL PALACE to a PIG PEN.

This is the condition of everyone who neglects God. Moving from POWER to PAINS, from STRENGTH to SORROW, from RICHES to WRETCHEDNESS, from GLORY to SHAME, from FREEDOM to BONDAGE, from LIGHT to DARKNESS, from PEACE to FEAR,…..
In his affliction in a foreign land, LOVE for his father started rising in him. He desired home, though no more as a child, but at least, as a hired servant.

While he was away, his father, FOR THE EXCEEDING LOVE HE HAD TOWARDS HIM, was always looking for a time his prodigal son would return.

However wretched you have lived your life, God, for the unfailing love He has for you, is waiting to save you from your sin, sickness, and affliction and to give you a place in His kingdom.

When this prodigal son returned, his father did not only accept him back into the family as a son, he also gave him a new life (Salvation) and a new outlook (Transformation).
(LUKE 15:11-24)

If you return back to God today, He will not only save you, He will also change you.

Do you know why God sent Jesus into the world to make him an object of sacrifice for your redemption? IT’S BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU EXCEEDINGLY. Jesus went to the cross because He loves you. He shed His blood for the same reason. He died in your stead that you may have eternal life. He did all these because He loves you dearly.

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. FOR GOD SENT NOT HIS SON INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN THE WORLD; BUT THAT THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED (JOHN 3:16-17).

If God had done such great thing for you, what does He expect from you? He expects you to reciprocate that love. It is only those who love as God loves that can enter into the kingdom of heaven. You can’t love God and still live sinful lifestyle. He wants you to forgive everybody who has offended you one time or the other.

His love will lead Him to any length to bring good things into your life; but you must accept Jesus as your Lord before you can enjoy the benefits of His love.
