1 Corinthians 13:13 “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
Wow! If the Word says that Love is more important than Faith and Hope …. we better get it right! Unfortunately, the mainstream church has adopted the world’s view of Love instead of God’s View. As a result, sin is ignored in our meetings and the deception of the enemy has run amok in the Body of Christ.
So what does the Love of God look like to you? Do you see God as a “Loving Father”? What is a “Loving Father? Does He overlook our sin? How does the Love of God and the Judgement of God co-exist?
How do we show God’s Love in our relationships? Is it by handing out a lot of hugs? Is it by “covering each others sin”? Is it by only speaking “nice words”?
Below are a collection of articles that address the Love of God according to scripture. Please feel free to check them out and “Speak Your Mind” below!
The modern day church THINKS they know what God’s Love is. We’re told to be nice to everybody, feed the poor, accept people the way they are, don’t lose your temper in traffic, be patient with each other … all of this SOUNDS like God’s Love … BUT IS IT?? I want to do a small study about the Lovingkindess of God. It’s not some obscure term that will be kept mysterious and unattainable until we go to be with Him. We won’t be able to pull the “His Ways are NOT Our Ways” excuse when we see Him. His Word is clear. [Read More]
I John 3:1 AMP “SEE WHAT [[a]an incredible] quality of love the Father has given (shown, bestowed on) us, that we should [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! The reason that the world does not know (recognize, acknowledge) us is that it does not know (recognize, acknowledge) Him.”
The Great Adoption
God’s Love is so special that He calls us out from the World and calls us His Own. This is a Great Adoption. We belonged to, and were in covenant with, the World … now, if you are truly following Him, you are blessed with the name “Child of God”. [Read More]
John 15:14 “You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.”
How many of us had a kid like that in our neighborhood? The kind of kid that would only be your friend if you did everything they said? I remember one kid in particular, and I didn’t stay his friend very long. In fact, nobody in the neighborhood wanted to be friends with him, because of his “My way or the highway” attitude.
And yet that’s how Jesus set it out in the Word. If you want to be His Friend, you do everything He says … there is no way around it! [Read More]
