Until I understand Godís love, I will
never know what God is like. I must see myself through Godís eyes and
learn the facts of love.
Godís love never falters or fails. It will never stop pursuing me until
the day I die. No matter what I do, I cannot escape it. I can ignore
it or reject it, but it will not go away. Godís love surrounds and
envelops me. It continually reminds me that I can be one of his
children. I will either sink or swim in his ocean of love.
Romans 8:37-39 states: ďIn all these things we are more than conquerors
through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor
life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor
any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation
will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our
Lord.Ē This scripture states the facts of love in an unequivocal way.
There is nothing in the entire universe that can separate me from Godís
love. God is my Father, and his love floods my heart and mind and makes
me whole. There is no limit to how good my life can become when my
heart is full of Godís love.
No matter what your age, you need to learn the facts of love.
The most important fact is that God is love. The more you know
about God's love, the better you understand what God is like.
Here is a list of some of the things the Bible says about love.
1. God is love
2. Love is patient.
3. Love is kind.
4. Love is not quick to take offence.
5. Love keeps no score of wrongs.
6. There is nothing love cannot face.
7. Love never fails.
The complete list is found in the Bible in I Corinthians, Chapter 13.
Until you have a good understanding of love, you will not understand how
God loves you. You need to look at yourself through God's eyes of
love to understand what it means to be one of his children.
Jesus taught that God's love knows no bounds. Jesus said, "Ask,
and you will receive; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will
be opened. For everyone who asks receives, he who seeks finds, and
to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Is there a man among
you who will offer his son a stone if he asks for bread, or a snake when
he asks for fish? If you then, bad as you are, know how to give
your children what is good for them, how much more will your heavenly
Father give good things to those who ask him?"
From his personal experience, Jesus knew that the Father's love was far
greater that the love any human could muster. An earthly Father's
love for his children pales in comparison with God's love for his
children. God never holds anything back if it's good for his
