“ Oh How he loves’ Ovit Lochard
1. Ovit Loved Marie with all his heart . Ovits greatest desire was to go home and be with his beloved. June 29th God gave Ovit the desire of his heart.
• 1 Corinthinas 13:4 Ovits Love for Marie was patient, his love for her was kindness for love is kind.. 5Love It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8Love never fails. Obedience to The Holy Scriptures was a means to a happy marriage
• Ovit not only Loved Marie but he loved Church, He loved his family, his friends and he just loved because He was a new creature in Christ
• Love is the very Nature of God. 8Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love
• Love is essential to our identity as a flowerer of Jesus says, “ Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
• Love of God gives us our Provisions: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy." 18Even with these words, they had difficulty keeping the crowd from sacrificing to them
• Love of God is expressed in His kindness to Humanity Isaiah 54: 10Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you
• Love of God walks with Us in times of trouble. 2When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze thou you walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will be with you
" Behold how he loved us!" Jesus Loved us enough to take away his Royalty and become a servant.
2. Our Lord Jesus Christ left the glories of heaven, and took upon him our nature.
• Charles Spurgeon said, When he took on our nature “he renounced the royalties of heaven, and all the honor and glory which rightly belonged to him as the Son of the Highest, and left his throne and crown above to be born as the Babe of an earthly mother,
3. "Behold how he loved us!" He would suffer as we suffer
• Then, "being found in fashion as a man," he took upon himself human sickness and suffering.
• All our infirmities,-the weary feet, the aching head, and the fluttering heart, "that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sickness."
4. Behold How he loved us! He loved so much that he would be sin
• He took upon himself the sins of all his people, as Peter writes, "who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree." Oh, how could one who was so pure, so absolutely perfect, ever bear so foul a load?
