I John 5:12 "He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life."
The greatest love in the universe is the love that God has for man. Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." By sending the Lord Jesus Christ to die in our place as the full and only acceptable payment for man's sins God has proven that love. Unfortunately that love is rejected and ignored by a lot of men.
There is a proper and an improper way to respond to the love of God.
Those that do not love Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour are lost. Christ came and died a cruel death and rose again to prove that love. He is the only hope of salvation. The lost person's response to the love of God is to realize that love that God has for him. Then he must receive the love by taking Jesus as his Saviour. Then he must rely on that love as his only hope of Heaven.
The lost person also has a choice to either accept that love and receive the salvation that God is offering him or he can also choose to reject or refuse that love. That rejection is the sin that sends a soul to Hell and eventually the Lake of Fire forever. When a person's life ends the opportunity for salvation is over. The lost person will enter an eternity of separation from God and His love.
How sad for a person to live their life without God and His love in their life only to die and spend an eternity in the Lake of Fire. That person sends himself there just by simply not responding to God and His love at all or rejecting it.
I'm so thankful that almost thirteen years ago I responded to God's love by accepting Him and His love into my life. Since that day my life has not been the same.
So how about you? Have you responded by accepting Him and His love or have you rejected it? The choice is ours to make. If you've not yet accepted that love in Christ won't you do it today? Trust me...it will be the best and most important decision you will and could ever make!!!
