True Love Part 2

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 ESV

How would you describe “true love”? Do you get that sweet, warm feeling when you think of love? Maybe you think of commitment as true love. Or maybe you think of acts of service for someone whether they ever know it was you who acted on their behalf.

Imagine you are dying, but the doctor hasn’t told you that yet. Someone you don’t even know finds out you are dying and gives the doctor your cure which he has to hold until you ask for the cure. You finally are told you are dying and there is nothing YOU can do about it. BUT Someone has the cure for you, all you have to do is ask for the cure and it will be given to you. You immediately ask for the cure and it’s given to you. You are healed! You can hardly believe how close you came to dying and you realize that the cure is available for everyone, they only have to ask. Wouldn’t you tell everyone you know?

Well God loves us so much that He provided the cure for me and you BEFORE we ever knew we were sick (sinners). Jesus is the Cure and all we have to do is ask Him to save us.

because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
— Romans 10:9-10 ESV

That’s love! If you’ve received His free gift of salvation, are you telling everyone you know? It’s the best gift ever!
