June through August of 2017 I’m posting a Bible study based on my book, “You are God’s Masterpiece!” Here is a quote from Chapter 1, THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL
“God’s love is everlasting, never ending, faithful, and new every morning. Psalm 100:5 says, “His love endures forever.” In Jeremiah 31:3 it says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love.” Psalm 103:17 says, “The love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear Him.” In John 3:16 it says God loves us so much He sent His only son Jesus to die on the cross. Even if you were the only person on this earth, He still would have asked Jesus to sacrifice Himself so that you wouldn’t have to go live with Satan after you died. That’s how much He loves you. Why would He not love us? He created us.”
If you are a parent, think about how much you love your child. If their life was in danger, you would protect them with your life, right? What about if it was your spouse? Or a parent? A sibling? Another Bible scripture says “ 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Rom. 5:7-8) So that is how God the Father and Jesus his Son express their love for us. Click To Tweet Jesus had a choice. In the garden he made the choice to go with those soldiers and be judged by the human priests. He made the choice to carry the cross up to the hill where He died.
What would it have been like to be in the presence of God? To see people healed and demons cast out? There is a christian song called “I can only imagine.” When I hear it, I have to close my eyes and imagine what it would be like to be with Jesus in Heaven or even with Him when He was here on earth while He was doing miracles and preaching. I’m sure it was much easier to stay focused and live a godly life. But it was also a harder time to live because they had no modern conveniences, such as cars, phones, microwaves, etc. And I like my kitchen appliances that’s for sure!
Praise God we have christian radio, christian singers and songs to keep us focused. It is one way I feel the love of God on a daily basis and keep my eyes and heart on Him. KLOVE is a national chain that has stations all over the US and they also stream their music online. It is definitely better than most of the songs out there that mostly are about sex, breaking up and booties?! I have always had a rule in the car that the driver gets to pick the music so the kids had to listen to mom’s christian tunes. And now, though not all of them are serving God, they still remember the lyrics of the songs. Seeds planted! With lyrics like “Amazing Grace,” “How Great Thou Art,” “I can only imagine what it will be like,” “Live like you’re loved,” and “My Redeemer lives,” how can we not remember that He should be our number one priority?
So when you wake up each morning, I urge you to remember how much God loves you and set your mind and focus on Him accordingly. Click To Tweet Tune the radio to christian radio to surround you with the Holy Spirit, not allowing the world’s music into your car, house and mind.
