The Father loves Jesus fully and completely, it is a perfect love. He loves Jesus with all His heart without any restrain. We who are unworthy to receive any good from God are accepted by God the Father because of Jesus. And the Father loves us exactly as much as He loves Jesus, in the same way, to the same degree, full and complete. The Father makes no difference between us and Jesus when it comes to love. Sometimes it looks like we are loved more because He sacrificed Jesus to gain us to Himself. Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! And then to imagine that even Jesus the Son loves us in the same way and so does the Holy Spirit. Oh, what an Amazing Love!
Now, with this same love we are commanded to love one another. Do we love in the same way? Do we love our own family members (Parents, husband, wife, and siblings), relatives, friends and neighbours, etc as the Father loves us? Do we allow this same kind of love to flow through us to everyone around us? When we allow, then we become the dwelling place of God for he who abides in love abides in God and God in him. Many have blessings, many have gifts, but it is only by this kind of love that we have boldness in the Day of Judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. It is the fullness of God’s love in us and flowing through us to others that makes us like Jesus!
When you move in this kind of love then all the shortcomings and obstacles that delay your progress in life will be swept away by the power of His love. Like the running waters of the river carry away all the rubbish from its path. The river finally flows and joins the ocean. It mingles with its waters and becomes one with it. In the same way when you allow this love of God to flow through you, you will not only be purified, but one day you too will flow into God Almighty and become one with Him forever and ever! May God establish our hearts in this God kind love!
The entry into this type of love is by allowing God’s love to flow in us and through us to others in prayer for them.
God bless you!
