GOD LOVES YOU (2)

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. God loves you

a) God is love and that is His greatest pleasure. You are designed by love, created by love and created for love. You are made to receive and give love. If you are a parent with many children, you know that the bond of love you have with each child is unique and special, because each one of your children are special and unique. You love all your children, but your love connected to each child’s love forms a special bond. For instance, if you loose a child no one can ever replace that child. The bond of love you had with that child cannot be replaced by another child. The same is true in our relationship with our Father God, only you can satisfy His desire of love from you. You are created to have a special love bond with God.

b) God makes it clear what He desires from you.  

You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. (Deuteronomy 6:5)

c) Enoch had a love relationship with God. He walked with God and communicated with God for many years and then God took him. He did not die God took him directly to heaven. God wants you to walk with Him like Enoch.  

Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him. (Genesis 5:24 NASB)

By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “AND WAS NOT FOUND, BECAUSE GOD HAD TAKEN HIM”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:5-6 NKJV)

d) Maybe you do not like some things about yourself. However, you also need to consider two things. First, God has a plan for your good in this life and for eternity. The second thing is that God is not finished with you yet. When you give your life to Jesus Christ you begin a new life. As you co-operate with Him, by obeying Him, you are being changed into a new you. 

Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. (1 John 3:2-3 NASB)


The End ...
