To the Love Hungry
SOUL SNACK 128/13 ... To the LOVE HUNGRY
To those unwashed in love...
To those unwanted in love...
To those who may even believe they are unlovable - please bear with me in this attempt to construct some love logic.
God is love. Love is God's fabric as yours is flesh and blood.
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. (1Jn 4:16a)
Love is God's chosen self-descriptor; it is both His very substance and entire character. Love is His exact shape. Love is how He pours Himself towards each life.
God cannot not love for then He is denying Himself.
His love is much more though; it is unpolluted, undiluted and it knows of no appeasement. A love that required even a minutia of placating would not be pure love. Such love would quickly descend into manipulation or even legalism.
God is not partial love but perfect love. There is nothing incomplete about God as love. Perfect love must be free and not dependent upon your responses whether they are good or bad.
SO - here is the love logic;
There is a throne that love sits upon, it is behind no barriers; it is God's throne and you can run to it - flat out!
Today's Soul Snippet:
Love is looking into another's eyes and seeing their heart.
