Love & Prayer

God is Love

God is Love

God’s love is not conditional, he loves everyone in the whole world. He shows mercy and kindness to all, he does not punish everyone immediately for their sins, he gives them a chance to repent. God is patient and doesn’t want us to perish; however, his love for everyone does not mean that everyone will be saved for he will not ignore sin. Sin will not go unpunished and to ignore his love or to deny him means we will feel his wrath not his love.

John 4:7-21
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother and sister.

All we can say to this is thank you God for loving us so much and for showing us kindness. Lets pray for others as an act of love, pray for those who are placed in our paths every day, for the sick and the ones that may seem to have lost hope. Today, let's put our hands together in prayer and pray for every single person including ourselves so that we may overcome whatever challenges life has thrown at us.
