Topic: HOLD ON TO GOD’S LOVE FOR YOU

Text: 1 John 3:1-3

๐Ÿ“–1โ€ฆ.”Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
๐Ÿ“–2โ€ฆ.Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
๐Ÿ“–3โ€ฆ.And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.”

Message:

๐Ÿ”ฅWe were not born by our parents because they loved us, but we were created by God because He loves us. Before we were born, God loved us hence he created us in our mother’s wombs. He knew what we would become even while we were yet in the wombs, since he made us to fulfill a craving he had for us. This love of God for us was not worked for by us, and so, not merited. So, we are children of God not by birth, but by God’s love.

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅSince we didn’t bargain for His love, we can’t also be separated from His love, except, if we deny his love for us. Imagine the Gibeonites that became God’s people by trick in Joshua 9:3-19; yet God protected them in 2 Sam 21:1-9. That is why the Bible says in Romans 8:39 that, nothing can separate us from God’s love for us which is in Christ Jesus.

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅSometimes we may feel empty as if God no longer loves us because of sin, but be rest assured that as soon as we eschew that rebellion, he will both kill the fatted calf for us, robe us, wear us new shoes, put a ring of love on us and make merriment to celebrate our return – Luke 15: 21-23. This is because while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us Rom 5:8. Dearly beloved, you are God’s beloved today and forever if you continue to hopefully wait for the appearing of Jesus Christ. In 1 John 3:3, God says whoever has the hope of his appearing is purified by that hope. Now say to yourself, I HAVE THE HOPE OF HIS APPEARING AND AM WAITING FOR HIM.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

๐Ÿ™O Lord, am so elated to know how much you love me. Help me to ever remain faithful unto you, in Jesus’ name.

๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™Heavenly father, avenge me of all my enemies, as you did for the Gibeonites because of your love for me, in Jesus’ name.

๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™O Lord, by your word in 1 John 3:3, use my hope in Jesus’ reappearance to make me pure and transform me into his likeness, in Jesus’ name.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:

Proverbs 25.

I AM JUSTIFIED BY FAITH!
