God Is Love

There is a Love drawing all things to the fullness of life.

John 14:7

“If you know me, then you will also know my Father. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”

Some people seem to have the habit of selectively choosing bible verses to hit people over the head with like a brick…lines that are condemning and punishing.

However, the bible is meant to be viewed in its entirety as a progression of spiritual development.

Jesus has the final word.

Actually…he is the Word.

He’s the one who said we had to forgive an infinite number of times (Matthew 18:21-22).

He’s the one that said to love your enemies (Matthew 5:44).

And he’s also the one that said the most important commandments were to love God and your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:28-31).

And when we review Jesus’ actions…we see someone always reaching out to those in need with healing and forgiveness without condition.

So please re-read what Jesus said to Philip in today’s scripture verse above.

Let those words sink in…and then allow joy to rise from your soul.

Smile!

This is what makes the Gospel…Good News!
