SPRING FORTH NOW 2023
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
I John 5:1-5 (NIV)
Embracing the fullness of God’s love toward us begins with us believing in Jesus. God so Loved the world, meaning that before we ever existed God Loved us by preparing a sacrifice, His Son slain, in anticipation of our separation from God the Creator so that we would always have a bridge back to His promises of life and life more abundantly. God's love for us and love in the past tense, meaning before we ever did whatever we did, as unlovable as it may be, God made a way for us to win, live life and live more abundantly. Thus, we can walk in the assurance that God always has a way out for us no matter the circumstances or challenges we face, we have a right to overcome them if we choose to believe. Believe, no matter the intersection of life you find yourself, and walk in your Most Favored Status for you are Loved by God before you ever arrived where you are and as a result, you have a sure way out and over, to overcome and inherit all things!
