Gods love for us is true love

Romans 8:38-39
“I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

The greatest act of love ever made was when God sent Jesus to suffer and die for us. For us, yes you and me not for his personal gain but so that we could live. He loves us more than any human could ever put into perspective. How amazing does that feel and for God to do that out of love and mercy just shows how extraordinary God is.
As humans we are going to face many trials and many sufferings but as children of God we can know that nothing and I do mean not one thing can separate us from the love of God. He loves us so much that he would do anything for us and has proven that already. As undeserving as we are as sinners God has saved us with the Love he shows by sending Jesus to die in OUR place.That should be us on that cross but yet we have been saved. Our hearts were full of sin and Jesus died with this sin but once He was resurrected we were given eternal life through the spirit and that is true love.
God will love us no matter what we do but we can not over look the importance of a relationship with God. If we sin daily yet ask for forgiveness we are forgiven yes, but is that all we want is forgiveness from the God who loves us more than we could ever imagine, the God that created us, the God that put our family and friends in our life as a blessing. Without God there would be no us and without Jesus we would be living a life full of sin with death in our future, but with the gracious hand of God and the savior of Jesus we have eternal life in our future. If we put this into perspective then we realize how little we truly love God in comparison to his love for us. If we want to inherit the fruits of the earth we must love God as he loved us. Our faith in him must strengthen so we too can love him without any restraints. The more we learn about God the more we put his love into perspective and see that a life without God is turning away from the person who has and always will love us more than anything or anyone else. He will always forgive us for our sin but will we forgive ourselves if we don’t strengthen our relationship with him? God loves us for who we are so we cannot love God for what he has done for us but we should love God for who he is. Lets get closer to God instead of waiting for him to get closer to us. He deserves all the glory because he gave us life when we were filled with death. Don’t just be happy with being forgiven but pursue to live with the God who forgave you daily.

I pray that we pursue God for who he is and not for what he can do for us. I pray that we put his love into perspective and try to strengthen our own love for him. I pray too that the non believers can see the truth through the words and also ask for their own forgiveness. I truly love writing about our unequalled God and for all the love he has shown me I forever give him all the glory.

Amen and God bless.

  1. That was a wonderful reflection. While reading this article, it dawned to my mind as you have said – God who is ever loving forgives our sins as we ask Him but often times we don’t forgive ourselves and others. It is the love of God that we celebrate in our Christian worship and in Sacred Scripture – but often we fail to love Him back. It’s a very good article. Have a nice day my friend. God bless you!

  2. Hi Tyler, this is a video titled, William Lane Craig: The Evidence for Jesus’s Resurrection. Southampton Guildhall, October 2011. It presents historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. This information is something every Christian should know about. I hope you enjoy. 🙂
