Willing to Love

2 Peter 3:9 (21st Century King James Version)

9The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Last weeks Bible verse showed us many things...God is not a slacker for one when it comes to His promises, He's logsuffering not willing that any should perish but that all should repent. God is basically saying Hey I'm not like man, I can be trusted to do just what I've told you. It also shows us that God is very, very, merciful and patient. Not willing that ANYONE shuld perish. That's our Daddy right there. There one is no one on earth that has committed an act so vile that God is not willing to forgive, accept for the unpardonable sin. Now this brings us to the LOVE of GOD. It's so utterly amazing God's love that sometimes I can't wrap my head around it. Lets look at this passage of Scripture: Romans 5:8
8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

While we sinning and rejecting God maybe in the club, drinking and cussing like sailors or sleeping with anything that breathed God had already demonstrated His great love for us, He sent us Jesus. THAT'S LOVE!!!! It's loving the unloving and undeserving unconditionally yet always seeking those individuals out with the hopw that they will receive that love and allow God to redeem them. Today seek somebody out and let them know that God loves them (-:

Let God Urge Men to Christ Through YOU! 2 Corinthians 5:20
Prayer for Everyone
