God and Love

19 Jun


God and love are inseparable. That is because God’s very nature is love. God Is Love. (1 John 4:8)

Some of us love with the best of intentions. But, nevertheless our love is often times flawed. It is oftentimes selfish. However, God’s love for us is pure and perfect. And, it is strong.

There is nothing that can separate us from the love of God. Neither death, nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in creation can separate us from the love of God that is found in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:37-39)

God loves us so much that he sent his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him will not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) And, he did this before we ever loved him. He did this for us while we were covered in our sins. (Romans 5:8, 1 John 4:9-11)

And, because God loves us so much, if we abide in him, when we are going through storms of life, he will never abandon us. He will bring us TO our storms, be with us IN our storms, and bring us THROUGH our storms. (Don’t Waste the Storm 2nd Edition: How to have joy and peace in the midst of life’s trials)
