Without God and Without Love

Love is more important than anything else. It is what ties everything completely together.  Each one of you is part of the body of Christ, and you were chosen to live together in peace. So let the peace that comes from Christ control your thoughts. And be grateful.  Let the message about Christ completely fill your lives, while you use all your wisdom to teach and instruct each other. With thankful hearts, sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.  Whatever you say or do should be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, as you give thanks to God the Father because of him.

Colossians 3: 14 - 17

When one person truly loves another human being, he or she is  touching the essence of God Himself.  If someone rejects God, then he must also reject love, because God is love!  Many years ago I visited a country that officially rejected God.  It was dark and dreary and there were no indications that love was part of what was happening among the people!  When you are without God, you are without love!  

Someone once said that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the ultimate love story.  Love is the reason that Jesus came to this earth, and love is the reason that He died on the cross.  The most profound message of Scripture is this:  Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so!

Every time two people find themselves in a real loving relationship, they are getting close to the reality of God.  Don’t forget that a loving sexual relationship which was designed for a man and a woman in marriage is not the only love between people.  Brother or sister, parent and child and dear friends can also experience love that comes from God!  

When the love of God is missing in your world, it will be dark and sad.  But when you let the love of Christ fill your heart and mind, you will see the Light all around you.

“Thank You Jesus for the Love that we may touch on this earth because of who You are!   Praise Your Holy Name forever. Amen.”
