The DNA of the human anatomy is the complex collection of information, that still baffles doctors understanding of the inter workings of our body’s ability to function, regenerate, heal and take care of itself.
I heard a while back if you were to write down the genetic code of each person, the length of the description of the human anatomy would Travel many times to and from the moon.
Doctors are still learning and discovering of the bodies complexity on a daily basis, today I would like to talk about something with even more complexity to our understanding. And that would be gods unrelenting love that he has for mankind!
Is there a more complex word than love? Some would argue, but I don’t think so. Society talks about everything from loving God, to each other, to movies, to cars, to football and food.
We hear about love on the TV, and the lives of those who portray love on TV with all the games and cruelness masquerading as what the world would have us believe is true love.
And once in a great while we are fortunate enough to see the real thing on display and we’re moved by real love, to the point of speechless with no words to describe the beauty of love!
It’s no wonder the world takes the word love for granted! Society is obsessed with love, but rarely witnesses or experiences what real love is. If true love is so unfamiliar and elusive, it makes one wonder why so many try to write, guide, talk and experience it?
Because there’s an empty void in the human heart and we are all in need of being loved! Love could be described as oxygen, the very air we breathe in or need of sustaining life.
The first thing a newborn baby craves and wants, is to be held and assured that it is loved. And that continuing feeling and commitment of love, brings a lifetime of blessings into the child’s life.
Without that commitment and feeling of being love, most every time leads to a lifetime pursuit of being loved and all the risks associated and involved in the pursuit there of.
The Bible has a lot to say about love in fact the word love is mentioned some 567 times in the Bible. All the way from Genesis to Revelation every story of the Bible is repeated through God‘s unconditional and relentless love for mankind.

Gods love working in the hearts of mankind is what’s sending loads of relief and supplies to every area of the world in crises this morning, at this moment.
Until a tiny little baby was born in the town of Bethlehem, this kind of love was unknown to the world.
The worlds concept of love defines love as being self-centered and always demanding something in return when love is extended. But the gift of Jesus and Gods grace changed all that and made God’s selfless love available to everyone on demand, without any retribution required in return. Such a genuine and pure love had never been seen before.
God’s love is the highest form of love, a love everyone wants to receive but few and far in between are willing to give because of the sacrifice involved.
1st John 4:7-8 KJ
7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

Four words in the English language describe Love...
Philia is love between friends
