“For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him should not parish but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 KJV
To me this is one of the greatest verses in scripture. One could do a sermon on just this one verse for a lifetime and never run out of sermons. It’s hard to imagine that kind of love and yet God through His unconditional love for all of mankind, did just that! I’ve never come close to that kind of ‘Love’ for anyone, not even for myself.
As sinful as we are, God still loved us enough to give us another chance to change our ways through His son Jesus Christ. I have received this great love from God and pray I am able to keep it because none of us deserve this great gift.
You may ask if I am a sinner and I would answer quite quickly, “YES”. But thanks be to God I have a way back to Him as long as I can repent with a whole heart. How wonderful is His love.
God through His great love always seems to give each and every one of us chance after chance to change our ways, but some accept and some do not. If those who will not accept His divine love would only allow themselves to open their spiritual eyes and ears, then they to would gladly turn to God.
Happy are they that believe for they shall find peace.
Then there is that special Love between a man and a woman that God blessed us all with. I call it the ‘Glow of Love’ and it goes this way.
The glow of love is quite unique. When a man sees that special
'Glow', in a woman's face, then you can bet he has found the
right one and has also found his soul mate. True love is one of
the rarest gifts, from God there is in the universe.
In today's society, we see more and more divorces.
Both men and women have lost that special talent
God gave them for finding each other. In this life we have but a few short years to find the one true love we had in heaven with God our father only here on earth.
Love is the foundation of all life. God created man out of love therefore he blessed man with his love and also gave us a woman to be our helpmate.
Throughout scripture Love has been portrayed. Jesus says that we should love one another as he loved us. I myself can not phantom my love being that unconditional as to give my life for every man, woman and child to save them from their sins. Jesus also said to love you enemies now that would be hard for any man here on earth to do. We tend to hate our enemy not love them. Jesus loved each and every one of us and we nailed him to a cross. So I say, Love is the foundation of all life and we should start ‘Loving’ today and not wait till the end.
