The Love of God

on March 14, 2012

“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.”  1 John 3;2

God’s love for us is so great and so mighty, yet so gentle and kind.  The love He bestows upon us is exactly what we need for the day.  He shows His love by watching over and protecting us.  His love is given to us as He comforts us and gives us peace.  When we seek Him and ask for His will to be done, He shows His love by giving us guidance and direction.  He daily shows His love when He blesses us and provides our needs physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  However, the most ultimate love He gives to us is through His Son.

Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”  The love that God exhibited through the act of giving His Son is beyond our comprehension.  When you’re feeling down and out look no further than God’s love for encouragement.  His love is perfect and through us the love of God is perfected.

“But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know that we are in him.”  1 John 2:5
