Recently during Praise & Worship at the Kingdom Seekers International Church, I suddenly said “Love is in the air” meaning “God’s love is in the air”! Now if we make this statement outside the ‘church’ atmosphere, people may laugh saying, crime is at its all time high, values are at its all time low, no trust, fear & anxiety all around, etc… So my question is “Is God’s love in the air”?
Here is what I learnt :-
• Creation was born out of Love :
In the beginning “God Made”; one doesn’t spend time to make something of no value or love. He has not made this earth in futility but in love and to bear His glory! All things were created by Him and for Him (Colossians 1:16). We were made to display God’s glory (Isaiah 43:7)
• Redemption was born out of Love and sacrifice:
God so Loved the world that He gave His beloved Son to die in order to save us (John 3:16), and keeps on giving us His best (Romans 8:32).
• Grace poured out of Love :
True, the world is deteriorating and getting decayed but there is a promise. Where sin abounds, Grace abounds more! If sin is increasing, grace is accelerating at a faster pace. (Romans 5:20)
• His love maintains us
In geography, we learn that the world is held by an imaginary line called Axis. But the Bible says that Jesus is upholding us and the universe by His Word (Hebrews 1:3). We are held by His love! He is ever living to make intercessions for us! He is seated at God’s right hand praying for you and me!
• His love will carry us home
Mathew 24:31 says, He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet and gather us to Himself. So He not only celebrates us while we are alive, but will also take us with much joy and celebration.
God still loves the world, He is busy passionately loving you and me…
It’s time we diffuse the fragrance of God’s love through Christ our Lord and touch the broken world around us.
