The Greatest Love of All
Guest Post by Heart and Soul Health Coach Mike Fenton
It is God’s great love that gave us the air we breathe, the beautiful sunrise/sunset(s), and so many more great things as we are told in Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”. He did all this and gave us free-will. What did He expect in return? What did He get in return? Is love about expecting something in return?
No, the key to any successful loving relationship is giving without expecting anything in return. Let’s remind ourselves of what the Bible says about love in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 4 “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres”.
We are reminded of great love in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. He did this so that we may be forgiven of our sins, so that we have choice to spend eternity with Him in heaven if we ask for forgiveness.
This world may never see again…The Greatest Love of All.
A relationship we should always cherish.
