It’s not difficult for man to enjoy everything that God has
prepared for him. The world is beautifully designed to
please man. His soul responds to it’s beauty from the refreshing
morning dew to the spectacular sunsets.
Most people love the nature, but have great difficulties in loving
themselves and other people.
The sin-nature has run it’s course in man’s history.
After all the devastating effects of Adam’s sinful genes in our
blood it’s a surprise that we have survived on this planet.
God’s common grace preserves us from total destruction.
God so loves the world.
Believers’ ability to love exceeds all natural motivation
for love. We can love even those whom we don’t like,
because God’s gift of love is stronger than an affection.
This love “suffers long and is kind;
does not envy; does not parade itself,
is not puffed up;
does not behave rudely, does not seek it’s own,
is not provoked, thinks no evil;
does not rejoice in iniquity, but
rejoices in the truth;
bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things,
endures all things.” I Cor.13:4-8
This is the love that is behind all forgiveness, grace and mercy.
This love never fails.
