Everlasting Love!

So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. ! John 4:16

A popular song claims that the greatest love is the love that we have for ourselves and people quote it all the time. We know it to be untrue because we hurt ourselves by the wrong choices we make all the time. We eat the wrong things, we do the wrong things and we hurt ourselves by trusting the wrong people. We live in constant fear. We are afraid to attend the wrong school, marry the wrong people, buying the wrong house and select the wrong job. We live with all kind of fears because we clearly don't know what is best for us, and we sure don't know how to love ourselves. "There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love" 1 John 4:18, obviously the love of self cannot be the greatest love of all.

Is there a love worth finding? Yes, indeed! I know of a great love. I have been hearing about it since I was a child and I have personal experience with it. I believe it to be the greatest of all and a love worth finding. I am talking about the love that caused Jesus to willingly lay down His life for "you" and to experience for Himself all the pains and weaknesses that "you" would experience. Unlike earthly love that requires perfection and demands you to change, this love accepts you as you are (unlovable, broken,hurt, diseased, full of baggage, financially ruined). You will not be rejected because it is a transforming love. It is everlasting love.

. This love makes you a child of The Living God. Galatians 3:26
. This love takes away your sins. 1 John 1:2
. This love wipes away generational curses. Galatians 3:13, Colossians 1:12-14
. This love makes you Abraham descendant and heir to all God's promises.
  Galatians 3:28-29
. This love surpasses all intelligence. Ephesians 3:19
. This love doesn't hold your past against you. 1 Corinthians 5:17
. This love (unlike other loves) is forever. Psalms 136:26

You can continue to fight and go from one disappointment to the next or you can enjoy everlasting love. The choice is totally yours. Jesus already opened the door, and it is up to you to walk in. It won't cost you a thing. Salvation is free. Christ paid the highest price for it. He paid with His blood. I don't know about you, but I want the love that is ever lasting. How many times you got hurt because someone you love didn't keep a promise? How many times a relationship was destroyed because someone uses your past against you? How many times a love one walks out because your weaknesses surface? You never know where you stand with earthly love. People find sick pleasure in keeping us off balance. They enjoy the guessing game. God offers stable, unchanged, and transforming love. I don't know about you, but I wish to remain in this loving relationship always. I want it to grow and continue to bear sweet fruits. I want to share it with the world so more people can benefit from it; after all, it is the will of God (Matthew 19:28).

The love of this world and all in it such as money, power and even good education can't save you when it matters the most. Embrace God's love and start enjoying a relationship like no other.

Praise the Lord!
