Comments on: Understanding God’s Love http://roanrickard.com/understanding-gods-love/ Wed, 09 Aug 2017 00:17:51 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.5.15 By: Tony Rickard http://roanrickard.com/understanding-gods-love/#comment-757 Thu, 04 May 2017 13:54:34 +0000 http://roanrickard.com/?p=247#comment-757 I appreciate and commend your effort to describe the indescribable. It would be to try to put a sunset into words or the radiance of the face you most love. Such things can only be experienced and are never the same to any two people who experience them. What is to be known is that the experience is available to everyone. Our God is faithful to reward anyone who diligently seeks Him. He will pours His love in to our lives. The trick is to remember that it may seldom be apparent in the circumstances of our lives but will rather carry us through the circumstances of our lives. In her Book, The Hiding Place, Cory Ten Boom relates that at the concentration camp, as her sister was being led away to the gas chamber her lass words to Cory were, “Remember how ever deep your situation, He is deeper still.”

In a Roman prison, awaiting a death sentence, Paul wrote what we believe was his last letter. It was to his spiritual son Timothy and included these words. “For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time of my departure is near. I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award on that day — and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:6-8 Faced with death Paul rested in the love of God. He had done all he could with God’s strength to spread the Gospel. His earthly reward was to be beheaded. His eternal reward was to continue to experience the love of God that he had walked in from the Damascus road to a Roman chopping block, and to, finally, be able to experience it in all of its fullness.

Seek the living God through the washing of water and the Blood of His dear Son and be submerged in that love for all eternity.
