True Love


As I type this right now, I'm wondering what my life would be like if I had not come to Christ. Pretty sure I'd be a total mess. In fact, I'm pretty sure I would be a completely different person. I've realized recently that there is nothing in the whole wide-world that is more important to me then The Savior, Jesus Christ. I've also re-realized that I'm a sinner.

Because of God's love he gave us free will,
and with us being Humans and all,
well...we chose sin over a glorious God.
Now, I say "re-realized" because I kind of forgot about it. Sounds weird I know, but once I started following God....my past was erased.
More like washed away by the blood of Christ.
Everyday I thank God for this.

He loves us so much that he is able to forgive us, he is able to look past our wickedness and love us. That's a pretty hard thing to do don't you think? We're so unworthy of God's Grace that sometimes, for me atleast, it's hard to comprehend how Jesus could do such a thing, love such a thing like me! The love that he has for us is love in it's purest form, love that can surpass anything.
Now here comes the hard part, God wants us to love him in this same way. Seem's impossible right? How could you love someone you barely know? One whole life time of getting to know God could never scratch the surface of who God actually is. But, It's the first commandment, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart". So how could you do it? Well, here is how I look at it.

God is forever my king...he died for us.
What more could you ask him to do for you to be able to love him?
"We love him, because he first loved us." 1 John 4:19
We may never know God fully in this life time, but in Heaven...we will learn knew things about him every moment.
So, I'll love him with all my heart and I will follow him until the day comes where I will be with him in Heaven. Until we meet and he says, "Well done, good and faithful servant.”
Today as I write this blog post....I know that I do. Jesus is the almighty Lord!

As I look through my window, I see the sky.
I see the glory of the Lord moving through the light of the stars.
His glory is right in front of us.
And to know that some still do not notice Him, even when staring into the face of God's creation,
is..... Astounding.

This is one of my verses for the week: 1st John 3:18
"Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth."
It is one thing I also need to work on.
I need to show God through my actions, not just by word of mouth.
