God Loves You 

He Always Has—He Always Will

By Dr. David Jeremiah

              A popular song from several decades ago declared, “What the World Needs Now Is Love.”  And I have to agree—as long as the love the world is given is the true love of God.  I don’t know of anything the world needs now, or at any other time, more than the love of God.  Only the love of God can remove the barrier of sin that separates mankind from God.  “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son” (John 3:16).  And only the love of God gives us hope in the face of disappointment and despair—“[Nothing] shall be able to separate us from the love of God” (Romans 8:39).

                God desires to give you the gift of His love.  But a gift must be received.  If someone gives you a Christmas gift, and you leave it under the tree and never unwrap it, you haven’t really received it.

              My point is that the giving of a gift is one half of a transaction.  The transaction doesn’t become real and doesn’t take effect until that gift is accepted, opened, identified, and appreciated.  In the same way, it’s not enough that God simply offers His love.  He expects us to receive it. 

Ladies, please join us if you are not already involved in a small group.
