Reason to Rejoice

We come from Love and will return to Love.

Psalm 89:2-3

The promises of the Lord I will sing forever, proclaim your loyalty through all ages. For you said, “My love is established forever; my loyalty will stand as long as the heavens.”

God loved us from the very beginning…before the beginning of time as we know it.

That’s beyond our mind’s ability to grasp.

God is Love (1 John 4:8). That cannot change.

What does Love do? Love can only love.

There is no vengeance in love. Love is kind. It endures all things and never fails (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).

God (Love) does not change by whims and moods like we do. God simply loves and promises to do so forever.

Jesus demonstrated God’s love with his life. Even when people killed him on the cross…his response was forgiveness. That is a response anchored in Infinite Love.

The resurrected Christ wasn’t looking for retribution against those who killed him or abandoned him in any way. He returned offering peace.

This is the love that sustains us and partners with us each moment!
