- Our Greatest Desire is to Love by God
Our Greatest Desire is to Love by God
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For i am sure that neither death nor life, nor angles, nor rulers, nor things present to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:37-39)
Love is a subject that is the most important desire for everyone one of us. You can pretend to be strong enough to not need love in our life but that only ends with depression. The harsh truth is no matter how strong us think we are nothing without love. You have no purpose without it. God created us because of love. God first loved us. In the Garden of Eden Adam and Eve were created it is because of love however their greatest sin was also because of love. Love for self. At the beginning of creation God was love and poured out His love onto the earth. It was Satan who perverted that love and turned the innocent love for what He created into pride as you in the choice that Eve made.
Bishop Jordan believe that God created love to draw us nearer to Him and you must remember this when you are focusing our attention on things of the world. Love is our greatest pursuit and our greatest desire. Love is also about trust. Whether that love is with a family member or the Heavenly Father. It is through love you learn to trust. God is the only one that can make us feel whole. We cannot depend on another human to feel complete.
