In one sense we are always traveling
And traveling as if we do not know where we are going
In another sense we have already arrived
We cannot arrive at the perfect possession of love in this life
And that is why we are traveling and traveling in this darkness
But we already possess love by grace
And therefore in that sense we have arrived
And are dwelling in that light
But Oh! How far are you and I go to
find that love in whom we have arrived
everything he does, He does out of love. pure and untainted. A love we could never understand.
so beyond comprehension so awesome. He not only speaks all our love languages He created them all.
He gives gifts to all, yet to those who believe in Him they find purpose in what they have received, and they find a lot more.
even when we fear the Lord we need to do it out of how much we see that He loves us, cause if you view God as a angry dad your missing the fact that He wants to pour his love over you. He poured His judgment out on His Son so when He disciplines you which He will if you are His child its never out of judgment He just wants to pour His sons blood on you, his mercy His grace, and healing. Ive learnt that sometimes the Holy spirit leads you and sometimes it drives you, like Jesus was driven out of this whole baptism scene into the wilderness and to the temptation, its out of love that he allows things to happen, sometimes he tests us with hardship, sometimes what the devil trys to do for bad God turns into something good.
The Greatest Commandment34Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question:
36"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" 37Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'b]">[b] 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'c]">[c] 40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
We need to embrace Gods love, embrace fully the relationship we can have with him by the blood of the Son. Not be status quoe Christians who live on the basis that they have said a prayer, or on the basis that they are doing Gods work, or on the basis that they go to church every sunday. What are works without faith and what is faith without works. NOTHING! What is Christianity without God, who are we trying to fool. It about a relationship with God, if we arent seeking a intimate relationship with God the truth isnt pretty.
so back to the quote at the top we have arrived at Gods love, you accept Jesus and you are given the right to become a child of God PERIOD But do you want to be a child that doesnt have a relationship with your Father, id say your adoption agency might take your kid away if there was no relationship between the parent and child. we are constantly traveling under His love towards His love
