The Love of God

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

I was thinking about the love of God this morning. I preached on falling out of love with the Lord last night. The Lord had showed me some areas in my life and I thank him for that. I thank God that he loves me this morning. I thank God that over two thousand years ago he showed his love by sending his son to die on the cruel cross for me. One of my posts most recently talked about his faithfulness to us and he is faithful. I have been to the point in my life that wondered if anyone love me. Then I am reminded from the Lord that he loves me. God can't help it he is Love. What about his love this morning is so wonderful?

I. His Love his Undescribable.
How do we describe his love, we can't? I mean think about he came and died for sinful man when he couldn't stand sin. He became sin who knew know sin. I asked a question think about putting one of you children, or one your parents on the cross to die for the whole world and most of us if not all of us would not. However God did this for us.

II. His Love is Unconditional.
When we love somebody we sometimes have conditions on loving that person. God never has conditions on loving us. He always loves us no matter what we do. When we are good he loves us and when we are bad he loves us. When I am in his will he loves me and when I am not in his will he loves me. There is no requirements for God loving us and I thank God for this because we fail him so many times.

This is just a little thought this morning but since God loves us he gives us a commandment to love other people. We are to love other people but we do not have to love their sin. We are to have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but we are to try to love people to Jesus. In conclusion since God loves us so much shouldn't we try to love God with all our heart , soul and mind. May the Lord bless you till next time and remember God loves you.

Thank you Bro. Tim for this post. I'm so thankful for God's love. No matter how unfaithful I am or how many times I mess up and shame Him without meaning to (who in their right mind would shame Him willingly?)...He still loves me and is ready to forgive me. I love Him so much for Who He is.....God not only loves but He is love!!! Thank you Lord!!
