Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. I John 4:10 KJV
There’s a popular song out that was just rereleased in the world by the group called the Black Eyed Peas entitled, “Where is the Love?”. I believe that question deserves an answer, especially since the answer is right there sitting in the Word of God and if you are a believer the answer is right there IN YOU!!!
And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:5 NIV
The world in many cases is looking for love. Some are consciously looking for Love. some unconsciously. Why? Because its kind of like a fish. If a fish accidentally hops out of water it will do it’s best to get back to it. Why? Because that is its natural habitat. That is where it is comfortable and moves with ease. People were not created by the devil. All people were created by God, by Love! And when they function in Love they to be more healthy, happy and whole. Why? Because that is Who God is.
So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. I John 4:16 English Standard Version
God is Love! As believers we must keep that as a key in our minds and hearts. As Christians we are pictures, images and reflections of Christ to the world much like the moon reflects the Sun. We are moons reflecting The Son!!!! Our behavior and attitude and responses towards people in our very own homes and in the world should be reflective of The Son!!! If every believer keeps this in mind wherever they go and in all that they do, I believe less and less people will be asking, “Where is the Love? and instead start saying, “There is the Love!!”. And when they see and are impacted by the Love of God in you through Christ Jesus, that is your opportunity to point them to all the warmth of The Son and give them the gift of real Love: JESUS!!!
All the blessed to you!! Shalom!
