It’s all about love
pastor corner

Truthfully the Christian faith is all about this thing called love. Before the beginning of time, God planned a way for His creation to be saved and spend eternity with Him and the motivation was love; for that’s God’s character - “God is love.”

His plan involved Himself coming to the earth through His Son Jesus to become a sacrifice for the sins of mankind. Again John 3:16 gives us the motivation of love when it states,” 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”. This time of year, we celebrate and commemorate when Jesus Christ came, died, was buried, then rose again to go to prepare a place for us all because of the love of God for us.

God will not force this love on any of us, but the invitation is open to every person, no matter who we are, to embrace it.

We do this by choosing to trust Jesus for His forgiveness and by choosing to live a life of obedience. Then as we daily experience God’s love it flows through us to others around us.

We actually are able, through the power of God, to love those who seem to be unlovable.

I am so blessed to serve a God who loves me so much and to be part of a church family that loves one another.

It really all comes down to this: Do you want to be loved?

Are you willing to receive love that is offered to you?
