Because God is love

15 Jan

How we say something to a person is important.  What we say to that person is perhaps even more important.  Why we say what we say and how we say it is of ultimate importance.

Why do we say what we say?

We know that God desires all men to come to repentance and a knowledge of the truth.  He came in the flesh to seek and save the lost.  To die for the sins of the whole world and to take them away.  To rescue all men from the bondage of sin, death, and the devil.  To give them peace with God: that they might know that they have life – the life that is “truly life” and “eternal life” – which is knowing His Son.  It is for this reason that they may dwell in the house of the Lord forever, proclaiming His Name far and wide, in what they think, say, and do.   

And we find this message being shared even with us!  In turn, we share it with others.

So why do we say what we say?

Because God  love.

The very young child of a good Christian home may not articulate things quite like this: instead words such as “I am Jesus’ little lamb”, “Jesus loves me this I know”, or “Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world…” may be what they most readily grasp (delivered by mom and dad’s loving communication of course). 

But it seems to me that God would have them to grow into an ever-deepening recognition that it is His steadfast intention to bring the whole world – and even them! – the “peace that passes all understanding” through His Son.

Because God is love.
