Love To Extremes

chosen

Love is a choice, but unfortunately in today’s society, love is described in terms of passion, sexuality, lust or blind devotion.

This sort of love looks only for it’s own gain and can walk away if it’s demands and needs go unmet or unsatisfied.

Romans 5 Verse 8: “But God proved His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.”

The God kind of Love took Jesus {The Son of God} to the cross to die a painful death, as one of us, but He did it out of love, to give us new life with Him, at His resurrection.

This is stunning love, at anytime, Jesus could have said, He had enough and was not going to go through with enduring the cross. The truth of this love is, it wasn’t the nails that held Him to the cross, it was His love for us, and to complete the task His Father gave to Him. Jesus was God and is God, He is one with the Father and The Holy Spirit.

In The Book ‘Song of Songs’, here we believe are the lessons in True Love. Solomon was intoxicated with the love of his bride.{Song of Songs 4 verse 10}

In the Book of Hosea. This is another love story. God called Hosea to pursue a radically different kind of love, one based on a conscious choice to be committed to someone else for her benefit, regardless of her response to the gift. {Hosea 3 verse 1 to 3}

God is the source of love. Sinful humans have often twisted and abused it, and even reduced it to destructive passion and lust. But God wants to help us rediscover love, so that we bring restoration and healing to ourselves and everyone we touch. This is basic to the message of Christ.

Love is both a difficult and wonderful subject to write about. The Love of God is amazing and beautiful, which we hope every reader finds for themselves
God Bless.
