For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9 KJV
Without a second thought, we all know what our world needs more than anything else- LOVE. As human beings, emotions is more like our currency-we spend, invest and use our emotions to feel good, appreciated, accepted. In other words loved(to feel included), imagine if people loved each other, “really loved each other”, there would be no war, abuse, injustice, poverty, hunger, homelessness, deprivation or immorality.
Love is that one ingredient that could revolutionize our society. Love is the greatest quality of human life and one of the most excellent ways one could choose to live. Love is a multifaceted emotion, love could mean compassion while it also is selflessness. As we enroll ourselves to this journey of love, we will explore different aspects of love- how to love ourselves, how to love others, how to feel loved and remain in Christ’s love and last but not the least, God’s agape love for us. One of the most powerful truth about this journey, is that love is greater than faith. The love of God for humanity is the beating heart of the gospel. For it was His love for mankind that moved God to sacrifice His Son Jesus on our behalf. (John 3:16)
For we are recognizing [more clearly] the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [His astonishing kindness, His generosity, His gracious favor], that though He was rich, yet for our sake He became poor, so that by His poverty we might become rich (abundantly blessed).
Let us spend some time exploring God’s love through His word and understand how God’s love can revolutionize our lives and relationships.
