ever considered LOVE is?
"GOD IS LOVE"
If someone says, "I believe that Jesus is the son of God," then God lives in him. And he lives in God. And so we know the LOVE that God has for us, and we trust that LOVE.
God is LOVE. Whoever lives in LOVE lives in God, and God lives in him.
If you are a Christian, He is a part of you.
Shouldn't that LOVE be evident in our life?
Shouldn't that kind of LOVE be our example?
There comes a time in every Christian's life when he or she is not living the way that God wants us to. It could be big ways like getting in trouble at school, breaking a law, or disobeying your parents, (Obeying your parents is one of the ten great commandments God gave us). Or it could be in a lesser way like having a bad attitude, being mad at a friend or complaining alot. When we are not being loving it is hard to take our problems to God. He is holy, and we are not. God knows everything, and that includes all the bad things we have done, said and thought. God is just and fair, and we are afraid that He may give us what we deserve, and that is not what we want, so we usually do not go to Him with our problems.
When those times come remember that God is holy, He does know everything and He is just, but He is also LOVING. In fact in the Bible 1 John 4:16 which we read above, says that GOD IS LOVE.
Because of that we do not have to be afraid to go to God and get things right with Him.
are many, many verses about
"GOD'S LOVE FOR US"
"LOVE" in the Bible.
Think of the Biggest thing that you have ever seen:BIGGER
The Tallest Building In a City?
Or Even a Dinasaur that lived long ago.
Whatever it is, God's LOVE for us is much
One day long long ago King David was writing a song about
God's Love for us. He thought about the tallest mountain, and he wrote "Your Goodness is higher than the mountains. He then thought about the deep ocean, and he wrote "Your justice is as deep as the great ocean. When King David thought about God's LOVE he looked up into the endless sky and he thought God's LOVE is bigger, much much bigger than anything I have seen. So he wrote, "Lord your Love reaches to the heavens."
David was overwhelmed by God's endless Love. Take a few minutes right now and think about how huge LOVE for YOU really is!
Psalm 36: 5-7
Lord, your Love reaches to the heavens,
Your loyality goes to the skies.
Your goodness is as high as the mountains.
Your justice is as deep as the great ocean.
Lord, you protect both men and animals.
God, your Love is so precious!
You protect people as a bird protects
her young under her wings.

How Long Will God Love Me?
F O R E V E R !
It is easy to believe that God Loves us when everything is going great. But what about those times when life gets tough? Maybe your best friend no longer likes you... Your parents are fighting or maybe getting a divorce... Your broke you leg and can not play baseball... Your family is moving to a new city.... or your favorite Grandfather died. What about those times? Does God still care about you in times like that?
GOOD NEWS ~ He does! God does not abandon you when the tough times come. In the book of Psalms King David wrote another song about God's Love Continuing FOREVER. In fact David repeats it over and over in Psalm 136. No matter how bad things are God's LOVE for YOU will never fail. Even when we feel that Nobody Loves us. You can know that God LOVES YOU.
So when things are Great and when things are Bad go spend time with GOD. He will let you know that His LOVE CONTINUES FOREVER!
This Song was found on Mrs. Sawhook's website
Jesus is my true Valentine
His heart was pierced for me
I cannot tell why He loved me so well
But He proved it on Calvary.
