Yes, EVERYONE!

I just saw this on a church marquee:

God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.” 

I actually looked it up and it is a Saint Augustine quote.  He was a catholic priest who lived a horribly sinful life before having a great conversion in faith .  Once he converted, he gave himself wholly to the Lord in everything he did including becoming a priest.  His story is quite interesting and much like a lot of ours.  We all have something we need to give up in order to be SOLD OUT for our God.  

The quote is such an awesome statement of the kind of love God has for us.

We are all equal in His eyes.  God loves us all no matter what and He has no “favorites.”  We are not to put ourselves above other people.  We are not to look down on others because of anything–ANYTHING.  Yet, how often do we all do this!?  I know I’ve done it in the past and perhaps I do it at times and do not really know it.  I’m human!  I do strive to be closer to God and more like Jesus.  I want to look at others like He did while on this earth and this quote puts it in perfect perspective.  That is how we should love.  

Show brotherly love no matter who it is or what the circumstances are—wow.  I know that is hard.  Believe me! I know that is hard!  It’s hard to love those who aren’t “lovable,” but think about how UNLOVABLE we are at times and God still LOVES US!  Wow.  

That right there just makes me want to Praise Him:  THANK YOU LORD!

 

Check out the lyrics to this song:

A Heart That Forgives

I want a heart that forgives
A heart full of love
One with compassion just like Yours above
One that overcomes evil with goodness and love
Like it never happened, never holding a grudge
I want a heart that forgives that lives and lets live
One that keeps loving over and over again
One that men can’t offend
Because Your Word is within
One that loves without price, like You Lord Jesus Christ
I want a heart that loves everybody….even my enemies
I want to love like You, be like You, just like You did
I want a heart that forgives,…

Listen to the whole song:

Love

20121101-184834.jpg

We are supposed to love each other.
Do you know the closer you get to God, the easier it is to love one another? ((Even the highly annoying CAN be loved!))

God does this for us. The more we believe God is our one true God, the more we believe in His mercy and His grace which was given to us through Jesus, it’s easier for us to see the blessings we have … And things like envy, jealousy, hatred and even your ability to become angry with others will begin to lessen… Will begin to melt away.

Love ’em all as best you can with God’s help.

Remember this verse–

You have heard that it was said, Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. For He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. (Matthew 5:43-45 HCSB)
