John 6:51

I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats this bread, he will live for ever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

The Love God has for us

PDF

Romans 8:38-39 For I am certain that nothing can separate us from his love: neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers, neither the present nor the future, neither the world above nor the world below—there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.

There is no debating the love which God has for his creation, he is love, by nature that is what defines him and it flows freely and endlessly from him towards his creation. And for the man that he made in his own image, the outpouring of God's love for him cannot be measured. There is no measuring yardstick, criteria or parameter known to man. that can be used to adequately estimate his love for us. Many assume that because of this, then God must automatically make all the goodness of his love to become available to them irrespective of what they do with their lives. They are wrong, the truth is we have an obligation to receive and open ourselves to the power of his love. For those who are followers of Christ, God has made the fullness of his love available to us through his son, it is therefore by opening ourselves and our lives to Jesus that we begin to open ourselves to the fullness of God's love for us and all that it promises.
