#5257 – God’s Love

Good morning people who live fully alive in the love and kindness of God.

I want to point you today to God’s love; to the Father’s love.

Any image of God that isn’t centred in the love of God is a wrong view of God.

When God creates, He does so because He is love.

When God heals, He does so because He is love.

When God delivers, He does so because He is love.

When God rebukes, He does so because He is love.

1 John 4:8 NIV Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

1 John 3:1 NIV See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

John 3:16-17 NIV For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

Hebrews 12:5-6 NIV And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”

God loves you!
