“Behold what manner of love the father has given unto us (clap clap) x2
That we should be called the sons of God (clap clap) x2”
I loved this song back in children’s church, we sang it like an anthem, I still love it today. It is a simple song that tells of God’s great love for us.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 NIV
The verse above could pass for the most popular verse in the Bible. What is it to you? It has to be more than just a recitation.
This is just awesome; it is a sovereign declaration by God Almighty, a legal message to the whole world. Think about the love demonstrated here, personalize and own it, “God loved you so much that he gave his one and only son, so now that you’ve believed in him, you shall not perish but have eternal life, you’ve crossed over from death to life”.
This love implies that He is watching out for us all the way and he cares about everything that concerns us. My pastor once said during a sermon, “God is more interested in our success than we could ever be” and since that day it stuck to my mind, it’s a constant reminder that come what may, God’s love never fails and even in dire situations, I can never be disadvantaged.
This love is more than enough to give us extra ordinary confidence in life, a higher level of reasoning. Always remind yourself that God loves you, the consciousness of that love would surely surely impact your thoughts and actions. Everybody will not love you and that is okay, do not force it, God’s love is greater than whatever love any man could ever give you, it is all encompassing.
Have a great week my beloved.
