The Blessing of Being Able to Love!

If God says his chosen ones are acceptable to him, can anyone bring charges against them?  Or can anyone condemn them? No indeed! Christ died and was raised to life, and now he is at God's right side, speaking to him for us.  Can anything separate us from the love of Christ? Can trouble, suffering, and hard times, or hunger and nakedness, or danger and death?   It is exactly as the Scriptures say, "For you we face death all day long. We are like sheep on their way to be butchered."   In everything we have won more than a victory because of Christ who loves us.  I am sure that nothing can separate us from God's love--not life or death, not angels or spirits, not the present or the future, and not powers above or powers below. Nothing in all creation can separate us from God's love for us in Christ Jesus our Lord!

Romans 8:33 - 40

The greatest thing in all the cosmos is the Love of God.  The love that God has for His creation makes all the difference in everything.  Because of God’s love, He showers His blessings on the ones He loves, which include those who don’t yet love Him!  It is the sometimes glorious and sometimes painful experience of being the object of a loving parent’s eye!  

God intends and desires that you live your life like Jesus did on this earth!   Living your life as Jesus lived His requires no special amount of education or money.  It does not depend on your IQ being above a certain level.  It simply means that you depend on the Father in everything and that you let love be the driving force of your life.  First of all, you love God and then you love other men, even your enemies!

“Lord Jesus, the greatest blessing of all is that You have created human beings with the ability to love You!  Thank You Lord for letting us touch the essence of who You are, by loving You and loving others!  And may You Jesus, be praised forever.  Amen.”
