God’s Love is Undeniable!
A young lady remarked the other day that God does not love the world because of the terrible things that were happening in several parts of the world. She concluded that humans were created to amuse God and are pawns in His heavenly chess game! I was taken aback at this false summation. When we go through Scriptures, we see the face of a loving Creator that left His glory and splendor in Heaven to come to a planet filled with all manner of vices to die for the humans in order for them to have better lives. This cannot be done except the Creator has love! No other god in history has ever done that or has the intention of doing that. Rather, they treat their adherents as pawns in the chess game ‘they’ play. The Almighty God loves us unconditionally and for that reason came and died in our place so we could have an abundant life here on earth and an everlasting life with Him for all eternity. There are no ‘hidden charges or hidden conditions’ to this offer, rather, it is open for everyone to access! The only response that is expected from us when we accept this awesome gift is to live lives that are worthy of Him and the sacrifice He made on the cross.
The angels and the devil marvel at this great gift bestowed on frail creatures as it was not extended to them: “What is man that You remember him, the son of man that You look after him? You made him little less than Angels and crowned him with glory and honor, You made him with glory and honor. You made him lord over the works of Your hands; You put everything under his feet; all the sheep and oxen, as well as animals in the wild, birds of the sky, and fish of the sea passing through the currents of the sea” (Psalm 8:4-8). He did all this because we were not an afterthought; we were purposely created for a particular purpose; and the way to achieving the purpose was facilitated by His coming to die for us on the cross. His supreme purpose for doing this is to bring as many as will believe Him to glory (Hebrews 2:10). Friend, don’t ever doubt the love God has for you: it is unquantifiable and immeasurable. No matter the roadblocks on your way that questions the veracity of God’s action, we must remain adamant in our faith that He truly loves and will go to any length to save us. Therefore, don’t despair no matter what is happening around you, God has an ultimate plan and He always win! Our pact in the scheme of things is to remain focused on Him and the heavenly eternal prize which He procured for us as an assurance of His unfailing and unfading love. Take advantage of this by coming to Him afresh so that He could renew your strength in order for you to stand and remain standing till the end. God bless you in Jesus Christ name.
