Just Saying We Love God or Do We Actually Love Him?

God created man and gave him a perfect environment and a simple test that required obedience. Man rebelled! Why should God waste any more time on man? Why not write him off as a failed experiment? Well, for one thing, God does not fail!  More importantly, God knew man would fail and mankind would keep right on failing and sinning. God’s love was ready to salvage man before man needed saving. What is astonishing is that God knew what it would cost Him to provide salvation. The sacrifice and death of His only Son was the price He paid because of His love for us. Now, before you pass over this too lightly, suppose it was your child that had to be nailed to a Roman cross. Would you pay that price? Could you love like that? The measure of God’s Love is Calvary!  Many believe, and I am one of them, that if only one sinner needed a Savior, Christ would have died for that one! Consider this: Is there anyone else who loves you like God does? How can some be so ungrateful as to spurn His love and refuse His Gift of Grace? When we couldn’t care less, God couldn’t care more!  Selah!  Weigh carefully the words below of "The Love of God" ( by Frederick M. Lehman):

"Could we with ink the ocean fill and were the skies of parchment made, were every stalk on earth a quill and every man a scribe by trade, to write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry, nor could the scroll contain the whole ‘tho stretched from sky to sky!" What is your response to this kind of love?   Ron

"We love him, because he first loved us." I John 4:19
