THE LOVE OF GOD DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. It doesn’t make sense to us because we don’t or can’t understand what it means to love the vilest of persons. How do we love someone who rapes a child? How do we love someone who murders someone whom we love dearly? IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. Not only does he love them, but he treats them as if they never did the act once they repent. It’s almost as if he has amnesia. He wipes the slate clean.
But, as humans we will remember the rape…we will remember the murder for years. And guess what, we are justified in that hate. Society says we are justified because the act is unforgivable. We would look like idiots to love that person. It’s almost as if we would dishonour our loved one if we loved that person. BUT GOD’S love looks beyond all of that and responds to repentance.
And what’s even mind boggling is, even if the person doesn’t repent, he still loves him/her JUST as much as he loves us. How does that make sense???? It doesn’t. But, this is why… there’s NOTHING we can do that would cause him to love us less. And there’s NOTHING that we can do that would cause him to love us more. HE LOVES US. Changes your perspective doesn’t it?
