What's Love Got To Do With It?

Did you know that during a time of prayer for believers and for those who would come to trust Christ through their witness, Jesus said that God the Father loves us as much as He loves Jesus. Wild huh! Yeah, Jesus boldly prayed to the Father saying, "You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me" (Jn. 17:23, nkjv). What do you think about that? Those are Christ's words, not mine...

"You loved them just as much as you loved me" (ncv).

"You love them as much as you love me" (nlt).

Jesus said, "The Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from God" (Jn. 16:27).

"As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love" (John 15:9).

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

Man's love is so, so, so small, but God is love. He is so big-hearted. Love is not God, but He is love. What's cool is that perfect love casts out all fear. But when we run out of love for those who are really tough to love, we can go back to God anytime ..asking Him to pour it in--requesting for Him to dump bucket loads into our hearts. He is like a huge reservoir of pure love ...and so much more than that! You can know and share His love today.

"Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another." (1 John 4:11).

Jesus tells us "I have loved you the same way the Father has loved me" (John 15:9a).
