God - The Epitome of Love


"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life" (Jn.3:16).

Today's verse may be the first scripture that we all learned by heart. Love should be the best known trait of God for us, but to really know him we need to know more. It is like me telling you that a man is a school teacher. Do you now know everything there is to know about him? He could also be a husband, father, Christian and handyman. To mention just one trait does not mean that we know all there is to know about that man, but it gives us a good start. You might ask about other scriptures that mention God as the epitome of love..."Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love" (1 Jn.4:8)......"But God demonstrates his own love toward us, that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Rom.5:8). Though there is so much more about God to know, that He is the epitome of love ought to be first. God's true love exists today in that He cares for all men. "He causes the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteousness" (Matt.5:45). His love is so extensive that He wants all to be His children and come to Him with their every care and concern. "Casting all your cares upon him, for he cares for you" (1 Pet.5:7). He is not an unconcerned or distant God, but One who wants to be involved in all of our daily activities. The God that we serve is certainly a wonderful an awesome God of love...

Have a great start to your week....Begin it with a RAK or two..... Love mark Phil.4:11
