In Love with you

Are you in love? Are you out of love? Have you ever feel the love? What is the thin line between our love and Jesus love? Our love mostly depend on the receiver of the love. Our love are often regulated by appearance or personalities. Our feeling for our loved ones will fluctuate, no matter how hard we try...

Yet, it is not so with Love of Jesus. We have no thermostatic impact on His love for us. The love of Christ is born from within us, not from what He finds in us. His love is uncaused and spontaneous. Does Jesus loves us because of our goodness? Because of our great faith? Shall we boast how much we love Him or His love for us? 1st John 4:10 says, 'In this is love: not that we loved God, but He loved us & sent His Son to be the propitiation (the astonish sacrifice) for our sins. [Amplified Bible]

Aren't you glad about this? Jesus love does not hinge on our human love. The abundance of our love does not increase His. The lack of our love does not diminish His. Our Goodness does not enhance His love, nor does our weakness dilute it. Says who? Says the Living word of God, The Bible! "The Lord did not choose you & lavish His love on you because you were larger or greater than other nations, for you were the smallest of all nations! It was simply because the Lord loves you." [Deut. 7:&-8 NLT]

Jesus loves us simply because He has chosen to love us! He loves us when we don't feel the love. He loves us when no one else seem to love us. Others may abandon us, divorce us, ignore us and forsake us but our Father in Heaven and our Lord will always love us no matter what as He says..."Just as He says in Hosea, Those who were not My people I will call My people, and her who was not beloved [I will call] My Beloved" [Romans:9:25] We are His Beloved Amen?! Halleluiah!

Found this in Max Lucado's Book, "A Love worth Giving"

Rewrite 1st Corinthians 13:4-8 in Your Name

Christ in Godwyn is Patient, Christ in Godwyn is Kind. Christ in Godwyn does not envy, Christ in Godwyn does not boast, Christ in Godwyn is not proud. Christ in Godwyn is not rude, Christ in Godwyn is not self-seeking, Christ in Godwyn is not easily angered, Christ in Godwyn keeps no record of wrong. Christ in Godwyn does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Christ in Godwyn always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Christ in Godwyn never fails...

STOP, think about the lines for a moment. Think deeply...It's time to let His love cover all things in life. All secrets. All hurts. All hours of evil, minutes of worry. The morning you awoke in bed of a stranger? His love will cover that. The years you peddled prejudice and pride? His love will cover that. Every promise broken, drug taken, penny stolen. Every cross words, cuss word and harsh words. Jesus love covers all things...

Let His Love cover all things. Do it for His sake. To glory of His Name, Amen?! Do it for your sake. For the peace of your heart. And do it for their sake. For the people in your life. Let His love fall on you so yours can fall on them. Be In Love with Him...

Hi Godwyn! I would love to be linked to your blog. It'll be my privilege! =)

I'm still learning so much about my identity in Christ that it brings me such joy to have fellow brothers and sisters encourage me even through linking their blogs.

I'm still learning how to do a column to link other people's blog. When I do it, may I add you to the list?

=)
