10/20/17 Based on Love
“Everything I do is based on love. You need to remember that, whenever the enemy accuses you of who you are not. The idea of the cross was because of My love. Jesus spent His life because He loved you. The idea of you being with Me for eternity was My idea. I am observing your heart. I am building My love in you. For now you and I need to talk. Tell Me whatever you need to tell Me. Express your heart. I will begin by expressing Mine. I love you.”
Gen. 1:31 AMP
And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good (suitable, pleasant) and He approved it completely….
Isaiah 38:17 NIV
Surely it was for my benefit that I suffered such anguish. In your love you kept me from the pit of destruction; you have put all my sins behind your back.
Matthew 26: 53-54 NIV
53) “Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?
54) But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?”
Luke 23:34 NIV
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”
So many times we misinterpret the ways of God toward us when we enter difficult times or when He is pruning us. During those times, the enemy attempts to confuse the issue by attempting to remove the love of our Father God from the situation.
Very simply stated, Jesus lived an exuberant, passionate life because He loved deeply and knew the truth. Everything that He did had love as its foundation, its continual motivation, and its ultimate goal. Nothing, not even death, could move Him from expressing that love to and for those around Him.
Because He was One with and knew His Father intimately, He understood the truth about the fate of mankind as a result of the fall. Because He lived with His Father in all of eternity past, He knew what separation from His Father for all eternity future really meant for those He loved and created. He felt His Father’s heartbreak because some would perish.
Thank You, Lord,
