Celebrating the Love of God
I want to share with you today a word that has really blessed me. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,” (New King James Version). Although a common scripture, it is new everyday.
The original word “loved” used in the preceding text is “Agapao,” meaning unconditional love of God, when He had no reason to love us, He loved us anyway! I am overwhelmed by this love of God that culminated at Calvary. Calvary is prove that God loves you and me. How He loved us! We should recognize daily by faith that God has proven His love to us by sending His Son to die in our place.
In Jesus now, everything we will ever need has been provided for; our past, our present, and our future needs have been taken care of through the representative work of Jesus Christ. Now in Jesus we are quickened, raised, seated with Him in the heavenlies, and anointed with the Holy Spirit. Beloved, I want to encourage you today, no trouble can hold you down, you are anointed, you are too slippery for the devil and his cohorts to hold you down, Jesus death and resurrection destroyed every legal claim that the devil had over you, it is your time now.
According to Isaiah 10:27, it is clear that the yoke of the enemy is destroyed, not broken but destroyed because of the Holy Spirit anointing on your life. This destroying of the yoke of the enemy by Jesus is clearly portrayed in Colossians 2:14-15 “having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us.
And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it“(NKJV). Hallelujah, victory at last!
Dearly beloved, take courage as we celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, make a concerted effort to live in the reality of such an amazing love of our Heavenly Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let nothing move you, the one in whom everything consists loves you unconditionally.
