love god on sand

 

I’ve been thinking this question since Friday:  Who is the most easiest person to love?

Before answering that question I think it’s important to think through the implication of this answer.

Whoever is the most easiest person to love must be the loveliest person.

When we say “loveliest person” we are not talking what we merely subjectively thinking about that person, but who that person really is and one whom we still find easy to love and perhaps even desire to love more with the passing of time and with the more we know of that person.

Have you realized that when you love someone, there is a porportional relationship of how the more you love that person, the more you are willing to do the things that pleases them?

So who is the world’s most easiest person to love?  I think the answer is out of this world: God.

God Himself is LOVE.

Note 1 John 4:8=

“The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

But it isn’t as if love is just an emotion, it’s manifested by action.  How did God reveal His love?  The next verse goes on to say:

By this the love of God was manifested [b]in us, that God has sent His [c]only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.

When you are struggling with obedience to God, realize it’s not just an issue of works righteousness; it comes down to the issue of how much you love GOD.

Before you go about saying what to do or what not to do I think it’s best to revisit your love for God.  If you realize your lifestyle reflect the truth of your level of love of God, then ultimately any combat of sin involves growing in your love for God that changes your attitude to compel obedience.

Now how do we cultivate our love for God, who is the most easiest person to love?

Know Him.

Know Him from His Word.

Study the Word, and study it deeply.

Study Theology.

Be consume and be entralled by God, find Systematic Theology and Theology Proper to be the source of feeding that knowledge that leads you to love the most easiest person to love.

Deeply meditate and be reminded of the Gospel and the person and work of Jesus Christ in saving us from our sins through the Cross, Death, Burial and Resurrection.  He Ascended to Heaven, seated on the right hand of God and still intercede for us!
