For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him (John 3:36).
Most of us learned this scripture as a pre schooler..yet we have no revelation of it. God displayed HIMSELF(LOVE) in this manner that He SACRIFICED the Son, that WE could have everlasting life….but the kicker..HE DID THIS WHEN WE DIDN’T DESERVE IT!!
Do you understand this? We hear all the cliches and great rhetoric of not giving love to those who don’t deserve it etc…NEWSFLASH..WE DIDN’T DESERVE IT, BUT HE GAVE LOVE ANYWAY..HE GAVE HIMSELF!! And please don’t come to me with that ” well we are only human” God did not make “weak humans who were incapable of REPERESENTING HIM TO THE FULLEST! Did you forget You were MADE IN HIS IMAGE AND HIS LIKENESS? Did you not understand what Jesus was saying to Nicodemus when he said we must be REBORN of water & spirit? In it’s simplest form..RETURNED BACK TO THE ORIGINAL INTENT OF WHO GOD CREATED US TO BE..REDEEMED..YOU ARE NOT WHO THE WORLD SAYS YOU ARE, when you accepted Jesus Christ as Lord, you my dear were REBORN(SPIRIT), and restored back to God’s original intent for your life!
LOVE IN ITS PUREST FORM WILL DISPLAY SACRIFICE. The only thing required of you, IS TO GET INTO RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM, so you can know who HE DESIGNED TO BE IN YOUR LIFE..and I don’t care what the circumstances are..IF GOD CALLED THEM INTO YOUR LIFE..THEN YOU PRAY, SEEK GOD, FAST, BUT MOST OF ALL BELIEVE..AND DON’T ALLOW ANYONE TO SEPARATE YOU EXCEPT THE FATHER..SHOULD THE TIME COME.
STOP being so scary..and saying things like..”I just want to be happy, or surely the Lord wouldn’t want me dealing with this..all while forgetting that YOU SAID YOU KNEW WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT that God said that person was for you” now that’s it’s rough..you are ready to RUN. EITHER WE HAVE FAITH OR WE DON’T …Trust God! If someone ordained to be in your life, betrays you, does you wrong..etc..SEEK God, don’t run..listen to the instructions of the Holy Spirit, do all that He says..and watch the outcome.
But I understand that what’s truly happening in these circumstances is that we no longer TRUST GOD! I’m sorry..that won’t work for long…JUST BELIEVE HIM. Cause when you accepted Christ as Lord, your life no longer belongs to you. You are to be dedicated and submitted to doing the will of the Father. Now tell me WHERE ARE THOSE PEOPLE?
