1. Father's Great Love
Jesus left His state of being recognized and worshiped by all the hosts of heaven as the Supreme God to become a man who was despised and rejected. The Creator became the creation; the Lord became the servant; the Highest became the lowest. All of this was done because of God's great love for us. Dear people God loves us not by choice or obligation but because his nature is Love.
Its not Just about knowing but Believing:
Even after we know that God loves us and has given himself for us yet we live in worry, fear and doubt. I believe the reason behind all these things we suffer is that we know God loves us but we can't believe that God loves us individually the same. We have no problem believing that God loves the whole world and he died to save them but it becomes hard for many christians to believe that God loves them individually and that he is interested in each person who is living on this planet earth. I believe that if I was the only person living on this planet even then Jesus would have come and died for me because I know and believe that he loves me. Its this personal revelation about his love for us will set us free from a life of worry, fear and torment.
Father's Everlasting Love:
Romans 8:31-39 (NKJV) What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 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 created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Father's love for you is everlasting(love which has no end). If you believe this then no matter what situation you are in, you will be secure in his love for you. For there is nothing that can separate you from his love. He loves you no matter what you have done or where ever you are. Many say that God hates sinners but that's not true. If God hated sinners he would have never come and died for them. Dear friend believe me God loves you no matter how sinful you are? He loves you just as you are. Come to him and he will wash you and make you as righteous as he is because he loves you.
Goodness of God leads you to repentance:
Isaiah 1:18 (NKJV) “Come now, and let us reason together,”Says the Lord,“Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow;Though they are red like crimson,They shall be as wool." Dear friend true repentance is the by product of understanding God's goodness and love for you. Romans 2:4 Do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? We all know the story of the prodigal son. Bible says that "when he came to himself" which means when he understood how much good his father is. That's when he repented and returned to his home. I believe if he would have thought that his father hated him or if he was angry on him then he would have not gone back to his father because he would have been in guilt and condemnation. Many people backslide today because of lack of understanding of how good the father is. Knowing the love of the father will keep you from backsliding and it will always makes you to look and run to the father when you fail or fall.
“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you." Jeremiah 31:3.
Dear friend Father loves you and he is calling you. Why don't you respond to him today. If you want to respond to this love of the father and know him more. then we are here to help you.
