Advent 3 (2013)–LOVE Relationship


He was with God in the beginning. (John 1:2)


All the way back before time, love was a relationship.  Not something to be seen with the human eye, but from God’s perspective, filling the blackness of any void we might have perceived.  He filled it with Himself.  With His glorious character because God is love.


 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16)


If this is the case, why do humans in general and Americans as a particularly materialistic sampling, insist upon assigning a material frame eclipsing any relationship of love?


After watching all the Black Friday events of people hurting each other—for what?  A TV.  Really.  An X-box? In the scope of eternity, that will never last.  None of this stuff will and yet it distracts us from the love that has been there all along.


The LOVE that has been there—as a relationship—since the beginning beckons us to wake up regarding our priorities and our loves.  We cannot see Him in eternity past, but His LOVE is still vibrant and powerful and fills a spiritual dimension we cannot know this side of heaven.  Is this the LOVE you know?
