A Matter of Love!!!

1 John 3:1, ” Behold what manner of love the father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not………….. He loves me, he loves me, he loves me, I can not count the way’ s they are to numerous for me and the reason’s are way to high for my understanding. I love the second verse in this passage of scripture, where John refers to us as God’s beloved, sons of God. When I think of  what this endearment mean’s, I am reminded  of all it say’ s about God’s great love for us, adjective’s like, dear to the heart, greatly loved, treasured, esteemed, adored. Wow” and the second verse Go’s on to say ” he’s not finished with us yet” for it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we can depend on the fact that when ! ” My God ” shall appear, we shall be like him. This is why I love him with all of my heart, mind, soul and spirit. For he is Lord over all, Lord of Lord’s and King of King’s, I am so glad he saved us believers from ourselves, snatched us from the fiery flames of hell! Some people will read this and say’ it dosen’t take all of that, well maybe not for you, but for me, I don’t have the vocabulary to exspress my gratitude,” perhaps I might resort to my gift’  of tongue’s to convey my feeling’s  to my Father In Heaven. No” for me that still does not suffice, But wait just a minute, hold it “I know what I can Do, and it will be enough! If  I serve him with my whole heart, in spirit and in truth, and if I adopt his will as my own, “Then I will be saying somthing , don’t you think? Love you in Christ!

Pastor Angela, you summed it up so beautifully about the love of our God. It’s really unfathomable just how great His love is for us. I know that I’m truly appreciative of it, and my life is worth living because of it. As I read your nugget, Romans 8:38-39 came to mind.
It reads: ” For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ” I thank God for His love, for His word, and for you as well. God bless you. 🙂
