LOST LOVE

“It’s better to have love and lost, than never to have loved at all” just does not make any sence to me. True love never dies, true love is never lost, true love always puts a smile on your face, and jump-starts your heart, so why put it in the lost department? Then again it depends on what your definition of what love is.

Disappointments, heartaches, and heart breaks have allowed us to lose sight and the true meaning of love. Most people fail to realize that true love is not one-sided, half-sided, or wrong sided, true love is not blind, therefore you will not be blindsided. Can you imagine if God loved like people love,or worse, put us in the lost column, or said it is better that they loved me and lost than to not have loved me at all, or the reverse.

God never put love in the lost department so why should we, as a matter of fact He told us in Jeremiah 31:3″Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love, therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you.” Those words make me feel special, make me feel loved, love that is sweeter than the honeycomb, no human being can’t give you that type of love, that type of love is never lost, and cannot die. God demonstrates true love to us by giving us His son (Jesus Christ).

John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son (Jesus Christ)…” This tells us that true love is giving, so what are you giving? God’s proof of His love for us is giving us Jesus Christ, Jesus’ proof of His love for us is giving His life on the cross. So I ask again what are you giving as proof of your love? Listen it’s simple, Romans 12:1 tells us to present our bodies as living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God which is our reasonable service, this is your chance to give back to God.

It is only when you give to Him in every aspect of your being, and fiber that you will experience true love, not only from Him only, but from everyone else. 1 John 4:19 tells us we should love Him because He first love us. Are you interested in experiencing this type of love from God and others? Then you must accept God’s gift of His son Jesus, and believe that God raised Him from the dead.

All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God for using me to tell you of His undying love, that is never a lost. May His grace, mercy, and peace be yours now and forever in Jesus Name, Amen.

CONDITIONAL LOVE

Conditional love is not genuine and will never last, because it’s founded on a stipulation; it’s based only on selfish desires. The truth is when you purchase someones love, in the long run it won’t be worth it, because it is conditional. That’s one of the reasons many marriages end in divorce, because most people now-a-days get married, for the wrong reasons. Marrying, because of the persons financial status, and not because they are compatible to you is dead wrong.

Most people will say there is nothing wrong with marrying someone with a high financial status, but when you examine the relationship, you will realize that the foundation of it is based on materialism and not love. Which means when certain conditions and/or wants are not met, then you are out hunting for the next victim who has the money or the thing that you want; when the money runs out, you run out with it. When the conditions of your love stops, then your love disappears.

Now, imagine if Gods love was conditional, where would we be? If Jesus’ love was conditional, would He had gone to the cross?  In Jeremiah 31:3(NL*) the Lord appeared unto Jeremiah, saying that “I have loved you with an everlasting love; with an unfailing love I have drawn you to myself” now that is reassuring. When you do not have the love of God in your heart as John 5:42 states, then your love will be conditional, and you can’t even love God or His son (Jesus Christ) who gave His life for you, who purchased your sins with His life, because of unconditional love.

People who love conditionally will turn against you and God in an instant, like Job’s wife in Job 2:9, who wanted Job to curse God and die, because her luxurious lifestyle suddenly  diminished or vanished. All this occurred because God wanted to prove to the devil, that Job’s love for Him was not conditional. Read it for yourself Job chapters 1-2.

Is your love for God conditional or unconditional ? Will you be able to pass the test like Job, if  satan accuses you? Will you declare like Job, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him” (Job 13:5).

How is your relationship with God? Did you accept His gift, of His only begotten son Jesus Christ ? Who or what are you waiting for? Why aren’t you seeking the Lord while He may be found,and calling on Him while He is near; let the wicked forsake his ways, and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and let him return unto the Lord, and God will have mercy upon him, turn to God who will pardon you abundantly. Just remember God’s thoughts and ways are different from yours (Isaiah 55:6-9).

Because of God’s unconditional love for us, John 3:16 tells us, He sent Jesus to mend the relationship between God and us. Jesus said, “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance”( Luke 5:32). Jesus also told us He is the way, the truth, and the life, no one goes to God without going through Him ( John 14 :6, Romans 3:23-24). Now that you have all this information, what are you waiting for? Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, follow the instructions, and accept Jesus today. Trust me you will not regret it.

All praise, glory, honor, and thanks go to the King Eternal, Immortal, Invisible, the only wise God, for using me to minister to His people, may His grace, mercy, and peace be yours now and forever in Jesus’ name, amen.

AGAPE LOVE

What am I living for, if not for God. If loving God  is wrong, then I don’t want to be right. People throw around this word(love) daily, as if they mean what the word dictates. Some people get married under the umbrella of love, for better or worse, richer or poorer, sickness or health, but as soon as worse, or poorer, or sickness comes they are the first to tell you it’s not going to work, or they didn’t sign up for this, the best is, when they say, I don’t love you anymore, or they fall out of love, or grow out of love, as if it’s a piece of clothes that doesn’t fit, or used furniture. But stop for a second, and think,who loves you unconditionally? and who should the love you are giving away so freely go to?

Let me explain something, that most people don’t get or understand, the origin of love is God, and it starts out with giving. ‘For God so loved the world, He gave, His only begotten son, Jesus the Christ, that whosoever believeth on Him will not perish, but have eternal life'(John 3:16), now that’s the epiphany, and essence of love ladies and gentlemen.

Gods whole character is love, and His love starts with giving of a gift. Can you imagine, if God decides to divorce us, or falls out of love with us. Gods love letter to the world (Corinthians 13), demonstrates to us what love is, not what it ought to be, and if you look at verse thirteen it tells us, ‘and now abides faith, hope, love….but the greatest of the three is love’. Friends if God, is not the focal part of the marriage, then you have problems, divorces, adultery, and the works. ‘He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love'(1 John 4:8). Most people fail to realize this scripture, ‘thou shalt love the lord thy God, with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all your mind…then thy neighbor as thyself'(Matthew 22:37-40) this places us in the third spot, or position.

Listen folks, grace be with all them that love the Lord(Ephesians 6:24),we love Him, because He first love us( 1 John 4:19), God has loved us with an everlasting love(Jeremiah 31:3), greater love hath no man, than Jesus who laid down His life for us(John 15:13), love covereth all sins(Proverbs 10:12,1 Peter 4:8)

If you don’t know God, His gift of His only begotten son Jesus the Christ, then go to the top of this blog, click onto the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do, in your entire life.

I give God, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to release His message, to the saved, and unsaved, I pray they will be obedient to His will, and ways in Jesus Name, amen.
