Have you ever been in love? Really in love?
Wait, do you know what real love feels like? Is the definition of love clear to you? Would you be able to define “love“?
What do you feel when you’re made aware of the violence we are surrounded by? The neglect, abuse, divorces, homelessness, etc.? Do you react with joyful smile? Or on the contrary, is it pity, unhappiness or a heartbreaking feeling that causes your heart to tremble for a second?
What do you feel when you see the cross? That cross where Jesus Christ was crucified? What does it symbolize?
It symbolizes the great love God had for us! LOVE.
For God loved so much the world that he gave his one and only son… (John 3:16)
God loved the world so much that he sent His son to die for us. He suffered in the most dreadful way! Great suffering. There is no other suffering in the word of GOD that could compare to the one His one and only son lived Himself. Jesus came down to this world not to be above us, but identifying Himself to be as human as we are.
Is this enough proof of the love God has for us? Now ask yourself, where does your love for our Savior stand? Have you really loved Him all along? Does your love for Christ bear any comparison to the love He has for you?
How is it that you demonstrate your love towards Him? How many of the twenty four hours of your day belong to your Creator? If none is your answer, then there are definitely some changes we have to make! Of those same 24 hrs, in how many of them are you in God’s eyes? God watches over you every single second, minute and hour. He is with us 24/7 and sometimes we don’t realize it. God’s love is so profound He never forgets to give us the time we DON’T deserve.
What more of a proof do we need?
“but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”(Romans 5:8)
And I ask you again, are you really in love with our Savior?
Let’s love God, like He first loved us. Our love for God is to be total and all inclusive, a wholehearted, life-encompassing, community impacting, exclusive commitment to our God.
The only thing God wants from us is to believe in Him. As you start believing in Him, you will slowly fall in love with your creator.
To truly love, we must first know God. Love starts with God and ends with God because God is love.
