God’s incomprehensible love – Loving me!

Gift of God’s Love

Ever since Lucifer was thrown out of the Heavenly presence of God. Lucifer had taken a role of an accuser of God’s children, which gave the title Devil for he accuses God’s children on how sinful we are. The Devil got permission from God to test Job so that Job would curse God and show man’s true colors. But the Devil learnt a hard lesson as Job never let His God down.

But the Devil the accuser has not stopped his work, constantly he keeps the Children of God remember they are sinners and live in Sin. Today, no wonder we have pulpits preaching sin management that leaves the guilty reel in sin and never able to liberate the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary.

However God the Father’s gift of love towards us is the forgiveness of our sins through the precious blood of His Son, Christ Jesus. Yes, forgiveness in Jesus’s blood is a gift from a Holy Father. Keeping His door (Jesus) open so that you and I can enter to seek cleansing. Our Father knows we need to grow and mature in the character of His Son. In the process we can experience the Heavenly Father’s love through the gift of forgiveness, bringing healing to our relationship with our loving God and renewing His love towards us.

Whenever I am not living according to my Heavenly Father’s will, the Spirit of God reminds me to seek His forgiveness through Christ’s finished work of salvation. Reminding me that there is no more condemnation and I am pronounced not guilty because of Jesus’s blood that cleanses all my sin and makes me righteous before God. Also reminding Devil that he has lost his cause to accuse me on my sin as the Eternal, Just Judge of humanity has forgiven me leaving the Devil in despair.

Yes, forgiveness is not to change my behavior but a gift to a child of God to experience the Heavenly Father’s love expressed through the Son in the Holy Spirit through the healing and forgiveness of our sins.

May we recognize forgiveness is a love Gift from our Heavenly Father and respond with an attitude of a debtor going to a loving Creditor who forgives with unconditional love and makes us sensitive towards what hurts our Heavenly Father, giving us the sensitivity to repent and not repeat that which hurts our Heavenly Father. May His gift of forgiveness set us free from our guilt and respond with appropriate love towards our Triune God.

Taking For Granted

When was the last time you took something for granted?

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say “very recently” ?

In this day and age most of us lead a pretty comfortable life.A roof over our heads, clothes to wear, food to eat, plenty of things to enjoy, tonnes of friends.Most of us have everything, but how much do we value these things? Most of the time we end up taking everything for granted. Let me give you some examples: How many times have we taken a friend who cared so much about us for granted? How many times have we taken our parents for granted?How many times have we taken our spouses for granted? How many times have we taken the talents God have given us for granted?  Im guessing the answer is going to be- “plenty of times”.

Have you ever thought about the air you breathe? You can’t see it. It’s just there. Its free. Now for one minute just imagine if that was taken away from you? Or the ability to take the next breath is gone? A little too morose?  I just trying to make a point here.We don’t know what the next minute holds. James 4:14 says.”How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog–it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.”

If you knew that you’re going to be gone tomorrow will you take everything you have in your life right now for granted? I sure wont! So why can’t we live every single day of our lives like that? Why do we have to see the bad side in everything?

Just the other day one of my family members was talking about his visit to a home for kids infected with aids. He was saying how the children just wanted to sit in the laps of the people who visited the home.. Children aching for love, aching for the touch of another human being. God has blessed us with so many people who love us to bits and care about us deeply.How often do we take them for granted? But you know what? They are not going to be in your life forever. Cherish them when they are there .

There is no value for anything anymore. Everything has become use and throw. Nothing has meaning. Love is not genuine. Relationships are not real. Friendships are superficial. Crime and corruption is on the rise. Why? It’s because we don’t value anything and because we have taken the very life God has given us for granted. If we actually value this one life God has given us everything else would make a lot more sense and mean a whole lot more to us.

Nothing in this life except God is permanent and the sooner we realise it the better.

What is this ‘Love’ thing?

Of all the overused words in probably any language, I think ‘Love’ takes the prize right after ‘Sorry’. And like most things  that lose their meaning when thrown around all the time the same has happened. Blame it on TV, the Film Industry or society or global warming, the truth, sad and harsh as it may be, is that nobody really knows what love is anymore. Read more

I Want to Die

“I want to die”, sometimes I wonder what must have led to people coming to that conclusion in their lives. I wonder what could have possibly happened in someone’s which caused this complete absence of hope from their lives; which led them to just give up and conclude that there is no coming back from this point, that this is it, this is the end of the road.
