Don't Try To Live Without God's Love
Don't try to live without God's love! Your life will be miserable without His love! Have you ever thought that this might be the reason that your life is so difficult in the first place? So stressful--!?
There are many substitutes for God's love--don't accept any of them!
The love of other people is not God's love. Admiration and respect are sought after by so many. People will do anything to get noticed--or to command respect. This is merely a substitute to fill the part that is missing in them without God's love. The love of your family is wonderful and it is Godly--it is a reflection of God's love--yet we all know that the love of our family is not always perfect--it is not God's love.
The world has set up many other false substitutes. Prestige, fame, beauty--these are very false substitutes--the driving force behind these ambitions is money. "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." (1Timothy 6:10)
The world would like to direct your love of God toward money. Without your love directed toward God how could it be possible for you to fully receive His love? Many will say that they experience God's love when they see a beautiful sunset--or meditate upon the beauty of nature. Again, this is a reflection of God's love--after all, He created everything and we can feel His presence in His creation--but this is not the full love of God!
"For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:" (Romans 1:20)
God is in the creation--in fact nature and its beauty are meant to lead us to Him--But nature is not Him! It is His handiwork and therefore contains a part of His great love--yet nature is not God's full love! Remember, don't accept a substitute for God love!
There is only one Way to experience Gods love fully in your life.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved." (John 3:16-17)
"He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him."(1John 4:8-9)
You see, the only way to feel God's love in your life is through Jesus! There is no other way! The way to feel God's love is to ask Jesus to be your Savior--and live your life for Jesus! There is no other way! "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6)
Don't live your life without God's love! Don't try to fool yourself by substituting God's love with love of money or love of self or love from other people.
So how do you get God's love?
Go to Jesus--tell Him who you are--ask for Him to come into your heart and show you His love. Ask Him to be your Savior, your God, and your friend. If you call on Him He will answer you!
Say this little prayer.... "Lord Jesus, you are almighty God. I want you to be Lord of my life. I am a sinner. I am not righteous and fall short of your great glory. But I believe that you have paid the price for my sin. Your death on the cross, the shedding of your precious blood washes away my sin. I want you to be my Savior, my Lord, my friend. Come into my heart now, Lord Jesus, set me free. And because I believe in you Jesus, I "shall not die, but have everlasting life," Thank you Jesus!
Don't live another day without Gods love!
