At this time of the year when people’s thoughts are directed to LOVE, perhaps it is an appropriate time for me to say that I believe that marriage is to between a man and a woman as God ordained and that I am pro-life. (Those of you who know me already know that anyway!) But I am writing this blog to remind you that God so loves us and we are to act with love towards others.
God SO LOVED us that He GAVE…
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”John 3v16 KJV
Stop and meditate on the unfathomable love of God. Then, think about how we can emulate that love in our lives. Love gives sacrificially. True love bears good fruit. Yes, we are so loved but God expects Christians to love one another as Christ has loved us (1 John 4v11).
OK, that’s all very good but what has it to do with the above picture? Well, I just cannot help but think of the little defenseless baby in it’s mother’s womb being so loved by God. What right has anyone to kill it? And yet, millions have been murdered. Then, I must go on to say that it is not only Pro-lifers and those who are anti same sex marriage that God loves. We have ALL been born sinners and we ALL deserve eternal death and WHOEVER believes on Christ can have their sins forgiven and have eternal life.
So, how should we treat those who disagree with us and even vehemently oppose us when we stand up for the life of the unborn children and for marriage as God ordained it between a man and a woman? Read 1 Corinthians 13. There is no room there for being abusive, disrespectful, arrogant or hateful towards those who support SSM and abortion. Remember, love never fails and our love ought to point them to Christ. That does not mean that we cannot stand strong for the truth. Never forget that the vilest of sinners (and there are many others besides homosexuals and abortionists) can be cleansed from their sins by the blood of Christ.
I rejoice that I am so loved and that I will one day stand with that great multitude of redeemed sinners which no man can number before the throne of God (Revelation 7v 9-17). I believe that the millions of unborn babies will be there and that there will be many redeemed homosexuals and redeemed abortionists amongst that great crowd praising God. Praise God you are so loved and make sure you will stand among that great multitude of redeemed sinners, too!
