Communion With God
Written by, Pastor Paul McCarthy
Outside the Gospel of Jesus Christ, mankind can only know God in His wrath – His settled, continued anger and opposition against sin and rebellion. What a fearful and terrifying reality to consider the wrath of God and the eternal consequences of God’s wrath.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ reveals to us in a most glorious and astounding way, that despite our sin and state before God, He loves us with an everlasting love. Our heavenly Father is Love! He is infinitely gracious, tender, compassionate and full of mercy towards you.
God so loves you and demonstrates that love to you, by sending His Son into this world to live, die and rise again, to give you Eternal Life.
Meditate on this – God’s Love For You:
1. Precedes Jesus coming into this world and dying for us.
2. Is the cause of Jesus coming into this world and dying for us.
3. Is the motivation of every action of God toward you.
For those who are in Christ Jesus and know Jesus as both Lord and Saviour, we can rest in this truth, that every thought and action of God toward you flows from and is a manifestation of His eternal love for you, including when He disciplines us.
Believe it, receive it, rejoice in it, ACKNOWLEDGE it in prayer and thank your Heavenly Father today.
Heavenly Father I thank You that You love me with an unconditional love, an eternal love, an unchanging love. I receive Your love for me today and I accept that when You say You love me, You do. I thank You and praise You for Your Love to me.
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
that the man of God may be complete,
thoroughly equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
