LOVE OF THE LIVING GOD
How does #love begin? Someone has to #care! Who says, “I love you first?” The Bible tells us the truth..1John 4:19 ” We love GOD, because HE FIRST LOVED US” “FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. 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 This is the first scripture I memorized as a young girl attending church, but as I meditated on the words, God became real in my soul and I accepted Him into my heart as my LORD and Savior at the age of 9. Even at that young age I knew I was a sinner. and claimed God’s Word in Romans 5:8,9 “God commends HIS LOVE TOWARD US, in that WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS CHRIST DIED FOR US so now JUSTIFIED BY HIS BLOOD, WE SHALL BE SAVED FROM WRATH THROUGH HIM.” I have felt His compassionate unfailing love through sickness, health, joy, sadness, success, and failures throughout my life with my Lord and Savior because THE LOVE OF GOD HAS BEEN PLACED IN MY HEART BY THE HOLY GHOST. (Rom.5:5) Through reading and listening to His Words, I have seen His working ( 5:11) “IF GOD SO LOVED US, WE OUGHT TO ALSO LOVE ONE ANOTHER.” (16) “GOD IS LOVE; AND HE THAT DWELLS IN LOVE DWELLS IN GOD, AND GOD IN HIM” This is the beginning and the end!
