Message for February 10, 2018 from Pastor Shirley

 John 3:16 “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.”

     God gave because he so loved. It was this love he had that caused him to give and when he did it was his very best.

     Agape is the Greek word in the Bible for love. It is undefeatable benevolence and unconquerable good will that always seeks the highest good of the other person no matter what he does. It is the self giving love  that gives freely without asking anything in return and does not consider the worth of its object.

    God simply loves us and does so by choice not because we deserve it or can earn it. There are no strings attached in getting God’s love. We don’t have to perform for it or try to earn it by works.

    The love our Heavenly Father has for us as his sons and daughters is a love by choice.
