True Love

"Do you love God?"

That's a simple question, or is it..? Most of us Christians feel like loving God, but only most of the time, because when things go bad, we don't feel like God loves us. But I'm gonna show you a whole new thing; well actually it's not new, Jesus did it. First, LOVE is a choice, not a feeling. Same can be said about faith. You feel God's love and that's great! But what about the days where you don't feel his love?

Choose to believe in his love and choose to love him. It's faith and love. Do you really think that Jesus felt like going to the cross? No, he chose it! To love God is a choice you make and, sure, there are many times where you feel his love, but when the "bad" days come at you, your true choices and intentions are shown. Decide to love God, even if you don't feel it and trust me, you will begin to feel it..

Feelings don't create choices, but choices create feelings.

  1. Very deep and emotional msg. Rob; The choice to fallow the Lord is always there He stands at the door of our hearts and knocks and what we decide to do after He has knocked is up to us. He does not expect us to be like robots and do His every wish because we think that we have too by some ritual; but because we are doing it from the free will that He has giving us to choose it by. I believe in the free will that the Lord has giving us to be against Him or for Him (of course you know were I stand with Him) but I believe that some do not understand this free will and the way that it works and the greatness that comes with choosing our paths of destines; to have a God that lets you choose to live forever in His Kingdom or perish in the depths. I think the moment in the garden where Jesus is praying is one of the most pivotal moments in the Bible that shows that the Father was giving His Son the chance to show what free will is; Jesus died for us out of His own free will He was scared and broke down in prayer in the garden crying asking the Lord His Father if there was another way even though He knew that His dyeing on the cross would be the only way to the worlds salvation. He is the Living God, The Alpha and The Omega, The King of Kings, and The Son of the Great I Am yet one so powerful asks for nothing in return for ever lasting life but for us to love his Son and believe that He died and rose again so that the Lord could look upon us in mercy. Jesus said it Him self the only way to the Father is through Me and by His blood we have been saved, AMEN.

    Keep up the great work Rob you are an arrow in the Lords great armory.

    Meget dybe og følelsesmæssige msg. Rob, Valget til brak Herren er der altid Han står ved døren til vores hjerte og stød, og hvad vi beslutter at gøre efter han har slået, er op til os. Han ikke forventer, at vi skal lide robotter og gøre alle hans ønsker, fordi vi tror, at vi har for af nogle ritual, men fordi vi gør det fra den frie vilje, at han har givet os mulighed for at vælge det ved. Jeg tror på den frie vilje, som Herren har givet os til at være imod ham eller til ham (selvfølgelig du ved, var jeg står med ham), men jeg tror, at nogle ikke forstår denne frie vilje og den måde, at det virker, og storhed , som følger med at vælge vores stier skæbner, at have en Gud, som lader dig vælge at leve evigt i Hans Rige eller omkomme i dybet. Jeg tror, det øjeblik i haven, hvor Jesus er at bede er en af de mest afgørende øjeblikke i Bibelen, der viser, at Faderen gav sin Søn chancen for at vise, hvad fri vilje er, Jesus døde for os ud af hans egen fri vilje Han var bange og brød i bøn i haven grædende bede Herren sin far, om der var en anden måde, selv om han vidste, at hans farvning på korset ville være den eneste måde at verdens frelse.Han er den levende Gud, Alfa og Omega, The King of Kings, og søn af den Store Jeg er endnu en så kraftfuld anmoder om noget til gengæld for evigt varig liv, men for os at elske sin søn og tror, at han døde og steg igen, så Herren kunne se på os i nåde. Jesus sagde, at det ham selv den eneste vej til Faderen er gennem mig og ved hans blod vi er blevet frelst, AMEN. Hold op det store arbejde, Rob du er en pil i Lords store arsenal. John

  2. Thanks a lot for the comment, John! It's so true what you're saying; Jesus is standing at the door and knocking. If we open up, He'll come in.

    He chose to love us, so that we could choose to love Him :)
