Yes we are to read the Bible; yes we are to pray; yes we are to reach the lost with the Gospel…….BUT WHY?
1 John 4:7-11
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
THE GREATEST MOTIVATOR MUST BE LOVE!
The very culture, and nature of our HEAVENLY FATHER is His passion not to let Satan destroy one of His babies. (God wills that none should perish.)
God is not doing this out of competition, but Father God wants people saved because He loves them.
LOVE IS THE MOTIVATION FOR EVERYTHING DADDY DOES!
His passion to save, His passion to heal, His passion to provide, His passion for covenant, His passion to deliver, everything Daddy does is because He loves us.
John 3:16 – Father wanted our love again like in the garden, but the only way to do that was to plant a seed – FOR GOD SO LOVED…
Father loves to be loved, and He loves to LOVE US!
EVERYONE IS LOOKING FOR LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE (EVERYONE!)
You have heard it said before, “Everyone is looking for the same two things in life, to be loved, and to be accepted.” It does not matter the country, the status, the hair, the height, or the weight.
Everyone is looking for love – MANY ARE LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES…….sing along.
We need more than just love – human love is so flawed – we need pure love. WE SEEK AFTER GOD WHEN WE SEEK AFTER LOVE.
From mom & dad, to siblings, to the opposite sex, to friends, to your spouse, to God, it is all about locating someone, or some group, to love you for who you are. This is the deepest of needs in a human’s heart.
The Gospel is the whole message of love and acceptance – that the Creator would be searching after us, not us pursuing Him.
1 John 4:19, We love Him because He first loved us.
He loves us not with HUMAN, FLAWED, SELFISH LOVE, He loves us with UNCONDITIONAL LOVE!
