A Love Story For Dummies
If I were to tell you this morning, if you know Jesus you have access to it! And immediately you would begin to wonder access to what?
If I were to tell you, it was the most freely given and withdrawn thing in the whole wide world and also the most misused and abused, would that give you a clue?
Also that there is an abundance and both a lack of it, in the world today but it always gives more than it receives?
What is it? Its Love, and right along with it, stuck to it and inseparable from it, is Grace. Love is grace and grace is love!
Both definitions are very similar and even though the world may not be aware of that fact, both gifts for humankind are in super abundance.
Because God has chosen to give them endlessly, to all who will accept them with no strings attached.
No matter what, or if any response is given in return, God just keeps on giving and extending them unconditionally and staying true to His word.
Gods form of love is known as an agape love! A love that is not sexual constantly looking for gratification, but wholly selfless and spiritual, not determined by the actions or deeds of others!
This is the purest form of love known to mankind, that’s the kind of love God loves us with!
Did you know that most people (and were talking about a vast majority of all people including Christians) never fully walk in or receive all that God has for them, because they don’t really realize or accept, how much He truly loves them.
The most amazing thing about God‘s love is, He loves us solely based on that premise alone, just because!
Its kind of like getting a raise at your job, even when always clocking in late for work without an excuse and your not even related to the boss.
But they say we’ll give it to you anyways, even though you’ve done nothing to deserve it, “just because we want to!
And you say thank you, no questions asked and you immediately start to enjoy the benefits, even though you don’t deserve them at all?
It doesn’t even enter your mind, the fact that you don’t even deserve them, But yet you’re free then given an unlimited quantity! How is that possible? How’s come, that would be such an easy scenario for anyone to participate in?
But tell me why, when God has offered His wonderful Love, Grace and Favor for being on His team, mankind walks away empty handed more times than not, feeling unworthy to receive them?
Listen up, I want you to know and understand one of the most amazing things ever revealed to mankind!
God loves you enough, no matter how you may feel or if you will ever reciprocate or not, to go ahead and give His Goodness to you anyway!
Even when you don’t think you deserve it, Praise God!
You know, Hollywood has made some of the greatest love stories of all time, into movies and shared them with the world. But, all of them combined fail in comparison to the Love, God has continually shown for mankind and the Love He has for you!
John 3:16 NKJ
16 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.
Why did God give His only begotten Son? Only one reason, simple yet so complex, because He loves us!
A person will never walk in, realize and enjoy, all that God has truly given to them , until they completely understand, “How much He Loves them!”
Matt. 25:29 NKJ
29 ‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.
Have you come across people who have little and hold it tightly in their grasp? Yet, even that little is taken away from them?
On the other hand, there are those who already have much, they freely give, yet they receive even more.
Jesus said, “To everyone who has, more will be given. From him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.”
Notice, Jesus isn’t explicit in detail, as to saying exactly what it is we have.
He quite simply says, “But to everyone who has.”
Has what you ask? Is it something tangible?
I’m so glad you asked, Why yes, it is! Its as real as the clothes on your back, the watch on your arm, or the ring on your finger!!
I believe “It” is God’s authoritive word on the subject!
Jesus is talking about a firm belief in God’s Word that gives one the courage to say, “I have it!” and I am willing to put my faith and trust in it!
