It is evident that God loves us. There is evidence that God Loves us. This verb is not past tense but a present tense action verb. God's love is just as consistent as Jesus is in our lives from day to day. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
God demonstrated His own love toward us (Romans 5:8). There is evidence that God loves us. The evidence that God loves us goes beyond what we already feel in our hearts, for that is just confirmation. The evidence of God's love being real and irrefutable comes from the sacrificial action of God giving His only begotten son to be delivered over for us all (John 3:16; Romans 8:32) to free us from the power of sin (Ephesians 2:4) Which mean we are no longer under the POWER that sin could ever have over our lives, actions, thoughts, words, circumstances, situations, strong holds, barriers, labels, bad credit, no credit, not even if you had credit! Sin has no POWER over us! Did you hear that? Sin has no POWER over us. Which mean the power that is in us, which is from God, is greater than that because we truly are more than conquerors through Him who loved us (Romans 8:37). Then check this out, after God lifted the power of sin off our lives He gives EXTRA protection by providing a way for us to escape temptation because we will be tempted, but God is faithful and He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with temptation will provide a way for you to escape (1 Corinthians 10:13) Read On!
God's demonstration of love is free flowing to the point of sacrifice. God demonstrated His love in the MOST uncomfortable place where in our sight it is hard to love like that. God reached out in this manner so that He could draw others in. He was willing to give up His own comfort and security for us. For if God gave up His son He will NOT withhold anything we need to live for Him. His love is FREE and without conditions. How do we get it? We already got it! The love of God was manifested in us, God has sent His only son into this world so that we MIGHT (because you have to come to him - Rebirth) live through Him. Because the only way to the Father is through Jesus Christ, He is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6).
Action time! If we have never trusted Christ let the evidence of God's everlasting love be ours and believe. Believing in change and evaluating things from and eternal perspective. This is where we can transform from sight to faith. Reflecting on the characteristics of love and how to understand the importance of strengthening those characteristic within ourselves to give love and express love just like God. I'll give us a head start; here are the characteristics of love:
Patience, Kindness, does not envy, does not boast, is not proud, does not dishonor others, is not self-seeking, is not easily angered, dose not keep record of wrongs, does not delight in evil, rejoices in truth, always protects, always trust, always hopes, always PERSEVERES, never fails (1 Corinthians 13) and conquerors all.
I know for us, loving sacrificially is something that is hard to do, uncomfortable and down right awkward, but God is not asking us to make this change over night, but He is interested in the opportunity that you would just consider because He knows the value it will bring to our lives. So whether you need love or want want love; love still servers regardless of circumstance.
