Your Love

"For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believe in Him should not perish, but have eternal life." - John 3:16

The Bible tells the love story between God and his people. Scripture reveals a covenant making, covenant keeping God in love with a covenant making, covenant breaking people. Despite our unfaithfulness, the Lord’s love never fails.

The Scriptures describe God’s relationship with us in a rich variety of ways: parent and child, shepherd and sheep, potter and clay, king and subject, master and servant, teacher and student, friend and friend.

The Bible also uses the imagery of marriage. In the Old Testament, God is the husband and Israel the wife. In the New Testament, Jesus Christ is the groom and the church the bride. In fact, a traditional wedding ceremony begins with the statement: “Marriage is an honorable estate instituted by God and signifying the mystical union that exists between Christ and his church.”

The Lord God Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, is head-over-heels in love with his creation. God loves us with the jealousy of teenagers, the passion of newlyweds, and the fidelity of a couple celebrating their 50th anniversary. God’s love for us IS a blessed miracle that we can celebrate today, and every day!

John Wesley, founder of our denomination gave to his people three simple rules to live by: Do no harm. Do good, and Stay in love with God.

Are you in love with God. He is in love with you, and it's a crazy, insane, deep love, like you have never known before.

Revel in His love!

Here is a portion of a favorite song about God's love for you,

"YOUR LOVE"
- Brandon Heath & Jason Ingram

You’re the hope in the morning
You’re the light when the night is falling
You’re the song when my heart is singing
it’s Your love.

You're the eyes to the blind man
You’re the feet to the lame men walking
You’re the sound of the people singing
It’s Your love.

But Your love, Your love
The only thing that matters is Your love
Your love is all I have to give.
Your love is enough to light up the darkness,
It’s Your love, Your love
all I ever needed is Your love.

Prayer: 
God, You love us with a love that cannot be measured! Thank You for Your love, and for showing me how I can love others. Amen.
