The Love Collision... This Love.




So I planned these whole big interviews with various people like I did two years ago to talk about God’s love. But somehow, I haven’t been quite motivated to get round to doing it. I just want to talk about this love as it comes to me. Maybe before the end of the month, I will get on with that.

But God’s love is real, it is true, and it is my daily reality.
It’s amazing to walk around, or even hang with people who have no idea that they are the ones Jesus loves. I want to describe this love to them, I want to tell them in the simplest term, but humans sometimes don’t understand simplicity, they go for the complex, and its so hard for me to say it in a complex way… simple is better, “God loves you”… God is not hounding you to excitedly throw you in hell. Yes you’ve messed up, but you’re not too messy for His love and grace to clean you up.

“For God so loved the world...” 

That doesn’t sound generic to some, thus it’s easy for them to take steps back, removing self from ‘the world’ in the word and making way for who this verse is talking about, the brand of special people... Probably your neighbor who prays more than you do, or the guy at work that never loses his temper, the lady who never takes selfies and only posts scriptures on social media, the colleague who’s always running off to church or even the Pastor etc. Or maybe God so loved mother Theresa or Maria Woodworth-Etter or Aimee Semple McPherson or Kathryn Kulhman or Adeboye etc

But it means YOU as much as the next person.

Say to yourself  “ For God so loved me He gave me Jesus...”

Who is Jesus? He is Love, He is salvation, He is grace, He is mercy, He is Life, He is wisdom, He is Favor, and He is Joy, Peace... Hope and so much more. 

Jesus is for everyone... It’s up to you to receive Him, this precious gift. God made flesh. Love, life, and grace made flesh.

This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again.”
John 3:16-17 MSG



Got Jesus?
