Love of God

What is it about His love? It is so calming.

I know Yeshua [Jesus] is here to save me. God is so happy I am back. He sings to me and calms me. All is well!!

Now that is good stuff. So very simple but powerful.

May I delight in God’s love. May He calm me as He sings to me. God is in a good mood.

Jerusalem will be told: ‘Don’t be afraid. Dear Zion, don’t despair. Your God is present among you, a strong Warrior there to save you. Happy to have you back, he’ll calm you with his love and delight you with his songs. | Zephaniah 3:14-17

This is where I have to get clear with what it means to be a servant in the Kingdom of God. Jesus is King (in complete charge) and Jesus has given me a command. This is not like at work where you can minimize a weakness or even just ignore it. Jesus compels me to love. I must break through.

God is love! God is in a good mood! Love is the main thing that demonstrates our relationship with God and Jesus. Loving is not optional.

If I don’t love, I don’t know God.

This is absolute and not relative. There is no questioning it at all. Again, Jesus is clear. If I don’t love, I don’t know God at all.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. | 1 John 4:7–8
