    Something that has occurred to me lately, with all this talk of love (#lovewins), is that God’s love is intense and absolute and final. When asked how we should pray, Jesus gave us the Lord’s prayer, which teaches us to say, “Not my will, but Thy will be done.” A profound thought in light of these recent days. God loves us so much that He would not force His will on us, though that would far exceed the wretched lives we choose for ourselves. God loves us so much that he will not force us to spend eternity with Him. If we prefer separation from God in this life, in the end, to each who has chosen not God’s will, but his own, I expect many will hear the Lord say, “Not My will, but thy will be done.” God loves us that much. In the end, God’s love will win…everytime. Either we take it, or we leave it.

    Simply awesome, but caused me again to sin….I covet your writings, I wish I had written them, and could claim them as my own.

    This was my response based upon Gods word:

    My brothers and sisters in Christ – Thankfully our God is a God of love (John 3:16, John 15:13, 1 John 4:9), so much so that he sent his son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins, so that we could have eternal life through the repentance of our sin and acceptance of His gift of salvation. (He 9:26, Luke 19:10, Rom 10: 9-14, Acts 2:38, Rom 5:8, 1 John 3:5, 2 Cor 5:21). Our God also calls us to love one another (Mark 12:31, 1 Peter 4:8, 1 John 4:7-21, 1 John 3:17-18).

    God has many attributes and though he is a God of love, the God of the Bible is also a jealous God (Exodus 34:14, Deut 4:24, 6:15) and a God of truth and anger/judgement that sent a flood during Noah’s time and wiped out the land, sent an angel to slay 185k soldiers, rained fire and plague against the Israelites, destroyed Sodom & Gomorrah, sent 10 plagues against the Pharaoh and people of Egypt, and will reign destruction on the earth after the rapture/2nd coming of Christ – the lake of fire. There are many more examples throughout scripture of the wrath of God against His creation. (Rom 1:16-32) (“The wrath of God is His eternal detestation of all unrighteousness. It is the displeasure and indignation of Divine equity against evil. It is the holiness of God stirred into activity against sin. Go is angry against sin because it is a rebelling against His authority, a wrong done to His inviolable sovereignty…..We find that God has made no attempt to conceal the fact of His wrath. He is not ashamed to make it known that vengeance and fury belong unto Him.” (A.W. Pink “The Attributes of God”)

    We ALL sin and fall short of the Glory of God, but the amazing thing is that God is also a God of grace and mercy and forgives our sins if we confess with our mouth, repent, and seek forgiveness (1 John 1:9, Rom 3:23, Acts 3:19, Acts 8:22, Rom 3). Jesus paid the ultimate price for our sins – the good news is that all sins are forgivable except for not accepting the gift of salvation (Matt 12:31). As new creations in Christ, God has a standard that he holds us to and calls us to live by as evident in His Word, requiring that we be set apart (Gal 5:19-21, Eph 2:1-22, 1 John 2:4-6, Rom 8;13, 2 Peter 1:5-8, 1 John 2:16, Rom 6:1-23, Rom 12: 1-2, 2 Cor 5:15-21, John 8:1, Job 11:13-20, Gen 4:7, Daniel 9:13) God is clear that he will be the ultimate judge and we will individually be held accountable for our life and sins (1 John 2:15-17,2 Cor 5:10, Romans 2:5-12, 1 Cor 6:9-11, 1 Peter 4:5, Acts 10:42, Rev 20:11-15, Rom 14:1-23). Although God is the ultimate judge, remember that we as Christians should adhere to His Word and speak in LOVE and TRUTH (1 John 4:1-6, Gal 5:16), not of hate nor our own truth, opinion, water-downed version of his Words, but His truth as declared in His Word – that is our responsibility – to spread the gospel of the good news, share the Love of Christ, and share the truth of the gospel and His word so that none should perish. Let us start by loving one another as Christ loves us and then sharing the good news of salvation and leading people to the cross! I am so thankful for the Lord’s love, grace, and mercy and I am joyful that he has forgiven me and paid the price for even me – a sinner.

    Yes! Exactly. We should only be worrying about loving like Jesus. Great post girl.

  5. Emilio Velez says:

    Before Jesus died on the cross for all, He said “Father forgive them for they know not what they are doing”. I believe it is the same with this ruling, they know not, but we on ther other hand should know what has been commanded of us, to Love one another. Jesus came for the sinners, ‘All Sinners’. This is not a battle of flesh and blood. What saddens me is the behaviors of those so called brothers and sister. It is their actions that will be judged. What would Jesus do. Shame on all those counterfeits christians giving a bad reputation to those who stand in obedience to God. We need to be mindful of our behaviors, actions, and words. The world is watching. Who are you really representing. We are to love on another is the greatest command.
