Almighty God’s love vastly transcends the frail and temporal confines of finite man into the ETERNAL REGIONS of FOREVER.
God’s selfless love seeks only the highest and best towards the object of His love, it is unconditional and selfless and rooted in RIGHTEOUSNESS and TRUTH (John 3:16; Rom. 8:28-29, 1 Cor 13:1-13).
The word Agape (love) in the Greek language describes the highest form of love. This love seeks only the highest and best for its object in all matters of life here in time and in eternity future. Unlike Eros love which is rooted in self and a narcissistic agenda, Agape love is rooted in the pinnacle of excellence and selfless expression towards its object. Almighty God’s love (His highest and best) for you and me is nothing less than God Himself and His perfect will for the object of His love (Rom. 8:28, 32, 35; 2 Cor. 2:15, 1 John 4:10). GOD is love. Note God’s love in action towards you and me. The Bible states:
"For God SO LOVED the world, that HE GAVE his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:16-17).
God GAVE His Son for us so that we should not perish but have everlasting life. How wonderful is that! All of God’s love is found in the Person of Jesus Christ for you and me. My dear friend, I do not know anything more wonderful than that!!
Do you know the agape LOVE of Almighty God that is found ONLY in His Son Jesus Christ? God so LOVED you that he sent His Son to pay the price for your transgressions against the RIGHTEOUS standards of Almighty God (Rom. 10:4; 1 Peter 3:18). Again, my dear friend, I do not know how to say anything more wonderful than that! The one true God and Creator of the Universe truly loves you (1 John 4:10)!
Today, choose to follow the One who LOVED you and gave Himself to you (Gal. 2:20). Place your trust in Him today. You will NEVER be the same – no, Never!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
