God is Love

January 9th, 2012

RG AUDIO 010912Psalm 36:1-6

All the works of God emanate from his love to all creation. If love is not expressed in the happenings, they are not of God.

We might be tempted at times to prefer the wrath of God on others rather than the love of God. Have we forgotten to remember what God has forgiven us? Have we tried to put limits on what God can do in our own lives and in the lives of others?

A friend of mine went with a group of volunteers on a mission trip to the jungle of Peru to build a church. An elderly native Indian, with a spear in his hand, approached my friend and said, “I want to give you this spear. My grandfather was a headhunter. He killed people with this spear. The missionaries came and told us about the love of Jesus. Now we serve him. I don’t need the spear. I have the cross.” The Peruvian was wearing a cross around his neck.

God’s love has no limits. It is unconditional, holy love which extends to all God’s creation.
