“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
I believe the theme of this week is love. How fitting will it be to talk about it, looking at the total embodiment of love- God.
This scripture talks about how much He loved the world. This was written in a Greek text. To the Greek, love doesn’t carry the same meaning. There are at least four different meanings to the word, love: romantic love, friendship or brotherly love, familial love and Godly love. The first three are conditional and will need reasons to love. The last kind of love which is Godly is unconditional, have no reasons and no strings attached.
God just loves us without any reason. He loves us because it is in his nature to love. He loves us because He is love. A typical example shows in how he loved the world and sent his only begotten son, Jesus to give us everlasting life. You may be asking, “what is that?” Everlasting life means you will experience life after this age is over. I believe in life after death. The world couldn’t do anything to warrant God’s kind of love, but just to accept and receive it. Likewise, for you to be a recipient of God’s love, you have to be accepting and receiving of it.
Today, I present to you God’s kind of love which is perfect and sufficient for us all. I write from a place of experiential knowledge- God’s love is too real! In this week of love, think on this and know that God loves you. Could keep on writing, but I feel this will be good for today. This post is to cause us to muse on true love which can only come from God.
If I can get you to think on this after reading, I believe my job is done. Happy Valentine’s Day to all my readers.
Till I come your way again…
Peace & Love
