How do we define it? There are so many different kinds of love. Those of you with pets will have a love for them. We have a different kind of love for our children and for those who still have parents there’s another kind of love, especially as they age and need a lot more of our care. What about the love we feel for our spouses, who hopefully make us feel extra special? Even that alters over the years as it matures.
It would be impossible for us to spend time with our loved ones 24/7, but with God it’s different, He is always there every hour of every day watching our backs, excited by our experiences and looking out for us in our troubles. In other words He is caring for us as a father cares for his children and it doesn’t matter how old we are. We are never too big or too young or too old to sit in God’s Lap. I love that.
How do I know this? Well, Christmas is just around the corner – a time when we celebrate the birth of Jesus – just a tiny baby – He is God’s son you know. Just think about it.
Imagine putting yourself in God’s position.
When I look at baby photos of my youngest child, would I even consider putting her through the pain and suffering that God destined for Jesus and WHY? Because that is how much He loves us.
Take a small biscuit (enjoyable enough) and think of it as an example of the size of the kind of love we have for each other. On the other hand, think about a large wedding cake. That is an example of the Love that ‘God’ has for us.
John 3:16, one of the most quoted verses in the bible says, ‘God so loved the world that He gave His ONLY Son so that we might have everlasting life. (Paraphrased)
All I can say is “Thank you, thank you, Jesus.”
