The Love of God

By   •   November 3   •   Topics:

The Bible is a revelation of the fact that God is love. Many people misunderstand the attribute of God’s nature which is love. “God is love” does not mean that everything is sweet, beautiful, and happy, and that God’s love could not possibly allow punishment for sin.

When we preach justice, it is justice tempered with love. When we preach righteousness, it is righteousness founded on love. When we preach atonement, it is atonement planned by love, provided by love, given by love, finished by love, necessitated because of love. When we preach the resurrection of Christ, we are preaching the miracle of love. When we preach the return of Christ, we are preaching the fulfillment of love.

No matter what sin you have committed, or how terrible, dirty, or shameful it may be, God loves you. This love of God is immeasurable, unmistakable, and unending!

Listen to this Billy Graham audio message about God’s love.

Prayer for the day

My heartfelt gratitude to You, Father, for Your forgiveness and love. I must be acutely aware that in all my dealing with others the only yardstick I have is Your immeasurable love.

    I have recently become a born again Christian. I recently was arrested with pot in my truck. I was engaged to the most incredible woman but had lied over and over with malice only satan could provide. I lost her, my trust, dignity, and respect that was never truly earned. It wasn’t until I asked God to come into my heart that things became clear and understood. The peace He provides is AMAZING! The cluttered mind was voided by His unconditional love. Now I crave His word like the lion craves it’s prey. I can’t get enough!I am no longer enslaved by satan’s grip. I am going to church on Sunday to declare this in front of everyone. I may have lost some things but they pale in comparison to what I have gained. The most important, being saved.
