In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I discussed the issue of love. Mainly, I discussed the love I gave, felt and received from my family.
Some of you may not be aware, but my family relationships have not always been the best. Probably, some of you have a good understanding of what I am saying, unfortunately.
However, the reason it made me so very happy to tell you about the love I felt, was for that very reason.
Even though love concerning my family is very important to me, there is no greater love than the love God has for me. And, for you.
I know that without God's love, what yesterday's LwL entry could and would never have happened. For this, I am eternally grateful!
God is love.
Even though we enjoy the love with family and friends, there is no greater love. No... greater... love.
And, His love for His children is the best love that we, here on earth, could ever receive.
Yet, not everyone loves God. Even though God loves them.
Not everyone realizes that God loved us so very much, that He provided a plan of redemption for us, using His Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Just as we are told in John 3:16, " For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Can you imagine how much love it would take on your part, to give up a family member you loved, for the sole purpose of saving others?
If you do not believe in our Lord, Jesus Christ, then I would suggest you do so, today. Don't wait.
While His love for you will never die, the fact remains that once your life has ended, there is no escaping what you will experience. And, where you will spend eternity.
So the choice is yours. Will it be Heaven? Or, will it be Hell?
Until next time...
