A Love Affair

     “For God so love the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”  God has given us His best gift but we do not appreciate the gift.  The gift was never meant to be under a tree, but the gift hung on a tree that you and I could be saved.  God gave us His son Jesus and for that we should give Him all the glory.  Love is who God is; it is His nature and expression of His being.  He loves the unloved and unlovable not because we deserve it; God knows we have committed every sin under the sun but yet He loves. 

       Many people have substituted love for lust and found themselves in some relationships they wished they could forget.  These lustful relationships were always taking and never giving.  The word love was used in order to achieve a short term goal.  When everything was over you found yourself alone. After giving your best you were rejected.  How does God feel about us when we reject His perfect gift Jesus?  Today give Jesus a try; He can love your sins away. Nobody can love you like Jesus! “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, hope all things, endures all things. Love never fails.”  God loves us as described above and gave His Son to prove it and the Son gave his life to show it.  All we have to do is believe in Him and you shall not perish but have everlasting life.
