Newbirth in Christ is the product of God’s love for a dieing world. It is by His love and through His love we can be saved. The Love of Jesus towards us was what made Him lay down His life for us, that through His blood we are redeemed (Eph. 1:7)
The Grace of God towards us is the product of His love for us.
2Cor.5.21 – For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness].
The Love of God brought about His Grace towards us, so that when we accept Him as our personal Lord and Saviour we are restored back to upright standing with Him. The only thing that hindered us from accessing everything God has in stock for us was Sin, so JESUS PAID THE PRICE for our sins so we will receive THE PRIZE of Eternal Life which is God’s own nature.
John.3.16 – For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.
1John.4.8 – He who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for GOD IS LOVE.
THE NATURE OF GOD IS LOVE!
Love endures with patience and serenity
Love is Kind and thoughtful
Love is not Jealous and envious.
Love does not brag, Love is not proud or arrogant.
Love is not rude, it is not self seeking
Love is not provoked [easily angered]
Love does not take into account a wrong endured.
Love does not rejoice at injustice but rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], Love looks for the best in everybody.
Love hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things without weakening..
Love never fails [it never fades nor ends] because GOD IS LOVE!
