December 18th 2018 – God Is Love

“Then the LORD said to me, “Go and love your wife again, even though she commits adultery with another lover. This will illustrate that the LORD still loves Israel, even though the people have turned to other gods and love to worship them.” (Hosea 3:1)

Have you ever taken time to truly think about God’s love? In Hosea, we get a glimpse of this love through the lives of the prophet Hosea and his wife Gomer. Gomer has continued to commit adultery against her husband, yet God tells Hosea to go and love her again. You see, this is not just a story about marriage and it’s not just an image of Israel. This is also a picture of the Gospel.

Like Gomer, we all have continued to walk away from God. We chase after other things to make us happy or fulfill our lives all the while forgetting the One who truly loves us. If the story ended there, we would be in a hard situation, but like Gomer, we have a heavenly Father Who was willing to buy us back. How did He buy us back? God purchased us from the slavery of sin with the blood of His Son Jesus. You see, while we were in bondage to our sinful ways, Jesus stepped out of heaven, walked to the cross and died in our place. When He died, He buried our sins with Him. When He arose, He pronounced freedom to all who would trust in Him. His reason for doing this for us is simple. God loves us.

“God is love”

If you have never experienced the love of God through a relationship with Jesus then come to Him today. He will never turn you away. You can pray a prayer a simple but effective like this…

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I know that I have sinned. Today, I come to You and ask that You would forgive me of my sins. I believe Jesus died for me and that He rose again. Fill me with Your Spirit and use me for Your Kingdom. In Jesus’ name, Amen

If you have read this prayer and believed in your heart, then congratulations!

(Luke 15:7) says that when one sinner accepts Jesus Christ as his or her Savior the angels rejoice. So there’s a party going on in heaven right now over your decision! Remember this date as your “second birthday,” the day you were born into a new life in Christ! You have God’s Word that he answered your prayer.

July 27th 2018 – God Is Love

“So he complained to the Lord about it: Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people.” (Jonah 4:2)

So many people put the tag on God that He is out to get you. Make one mistake and He will bring some calamity on you to teach you if needed.  I was taught growing up that God sits up in heaven on a big throne, with a lightning bolt in His hand and He’s just looking for someone to tick Him off and then, look out! Even insurance companies call disasters, acts of god. Well that’s not our God. Jesus told us so clearly in the book of John who the destroyer is, and you know what? It’s not God. Here look at what it says. “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). You see, God gives life and satan destroys it.

Here this Old Testament prophet knew the heart and nature of God.  He wanted God to destroy these people, but as soon as they repented, God was quick to forgive and to restore.  I’m always amazed that when a disaster hits an area, they call it an act of god, but when there is a beautiful day or something very special happens in our world, they call it mother nature or mother earth.  Come on Christians.  Let’s speak what the truth of the Word says and not what man-made religion says. God is love, He is a good God, a merciful and compassionate God.  He is One who is slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.  If the church would start showing the world a loving God like this, it would change people’s hearts from running from God to running to Him.  Let’s share the truth and see God do the rest.  He is filled with unfailing love.

“Though our feelings comes and goes, God’s Love Does Not!”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father thank you for being a God of Love. Thank you for always looking out for our good.  Your word says You created me and love me, and I am so greatful that you do.  That you sought me out in the middle of a calamity, without your love and caring of me individually, I would have surely perished. What a great God we serve. I praise and Love you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
