“Ask God”- Conclusion

The final entry on the sign read:

I asked God to help me love others as much as God loves me. God said, “Ah! Finally, now you have the right idea.”

The flow of love seems to work in this manner: God loves us- He loved us so much that He sent his only begotten Son to suffer and die on the cross for our forgiveness of sin; and then raised Jesus from the dead so that we could live with Him forever. We love God- For so great a demonstration of love, how can we not love the Lord in return? We love others- Because God IS love, when we are filled with His Spirit, we will choose to love others even above ourselves…in the way that Jesus, the Lord, demonstrated to us. Because of His love for us, we can take a willful delight in loving others, exercising the aspects of love outlined in 1 Corinthians, chapter 13.
