Faith Filled Friday: 10 Things You Should Know about God’s Love

July 21, 2018

I’ve known God’s love most of my life and wouldn’t know what to do without being in His care. Tomorrow is my 70th birthday and it makes me feel old today. It’s almost weird how I’ve gone from looking forward to my special day to not wanting to have that number associated with my name.
In Lady’s Bible Study this morning, they had a candle inserted into one of the breakfast rolls. I made a wish that God would bless everyone in the room before blowing out the candle. Most of them are older than me and they each reminded me that it was just a number. I thanked the Lord for all my friends.
Also, I got my cake today and Joyanna did a beautiful job on decorating it. (look for Joy of Cakes on Facebook; she was going to post a picture of it.) Seeing Happy 70th Birthday written across the top wasn’t as scary as I expected. She brought it to the church so my friends got to see it also. I thanked the Lord for letting me have all those years.
I’ve gotten cards and phone calls wishing me Happy Birthday. It was nice to be remembered by so many.
God has been with me through the rough times and the good. Having Him near gives me the support I need. I plan to keep Him close until He calls me home which I hope is many years from now. I thanked Him for the saving grace of Jesus and giving me a home in heaven.
I’ve posted the first two points from the article and hope you’ll visit the site to see the rest. We may not fully God’s love while we live on this earth, but I’m not worried about understanding it. Just knowing that He loves me, saved me from my sin, and has made a place for me in heaven is all I need.

10 Things You Should Know about the Love of God

1. God’s love is incomprehensible.
No human mind can comprehend God. We cannot define God. We cannot provide a comprehensive account of who he is. He “dwells in unapproachable light” (1 Tim. 6:16). If God is incomprehensible, then so is his love. While we may and must speak truthfully about his love, we can never fathom it, because it is divine love, as different from our love as his being is different from our being.
2. God’s love can be known.
We cannot define God in the sense of delimiting exhaustively who he is, but we can nonetheless describe him truthfully. We can do so because he has made himself known to us in his Word and he opens our eyes to that Word by his Spirit. How is that possible, given the divine difference? It is possible because God makes himself known to us in creaturely reality. He takes up the things he has made and uses them to describe himself to us. Thus he is a lion, a rock, fire, even moth and dry rot (look it up!).
