The Love of God – By Dr. Glenn Cummings

I can say with great confidence today from my own experience and from the Word of God that you are loved by Almighty God. I don’t think we can fully grasp His love because our love is tainted by so many things.  God’s love is pure.  We use the word “love” in so many ways.  We talk about loving food, sports, and so many things.  However, God’s love is a giving and sacrificial love.  We see that expressed in Jesus’ death on the cross.

What a contrast the love of God is to the so-called “love” of our culture. Our world loves you when you are young and beautiful; God loves you when you are old and not so attractive. Our world loves you when you are famous and a celebrity; God loves you when you are unknown and a complete nobody. Our world loves you when you are rich and powerful; God loves you when you are penniless and weak. Our world loves the extraordinary. God loves the ordinary. People like you and me.
