The message is simple: “God is love. Salvation is free.”~priest

I woke up this morning thinking of God’s love.  I am encouraged to know my mind in it’s physical sleep, rests in a never ending awareness of God’s love.  As I woke up, I was endeavored to adequately  share a picture of God’s love.  It was a story to tell.

There was time eternal when God existed and the world did not.  The thought of God without the world is an amazing thought in it’s own right.  This God eternal had a component called love.  He was bursting at the seams with love and desired ever so much to share it.  The angels likely appreciated it, but couldn’t quite grasp it.

God pondered how best to share this incredibly magnificent thing called love.  After a time, he developed a plan including the creation of a world inhabited by a creature made in His image.  It was an awesome plan, with an incredible price to be paid.  It was the cost of the plan, that created a great struggle in the heart of God.  In the end love won.

God created the world and man in His image.  God’s plan began to unfold.  It was a beautiful plan, even as the corruption of sin took place.  There would never be a plan as beautiful as this.  It required the sacrifice of God’s only Son as the redemption of man’s soul.  There was no better or more beautiful way for God to express His love than His Son give His life that others might live.

Man now chooses to accept or reject God’s love.  There is still no more beautiful story to be told than the story of God’s love.  It is message ringing true eternal.  It is a message I desire you to receive.

For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God.  There is but one way, through Jesus to accept God’s love.  The message is simple.  God is love and salvation is free.  Embrace it today…

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. And Cindy at about 6 or 7 asked “Did Jesus really do that for me? Yes, God gave His only Son that we Might accept
    His gift to us – free to us, but at a tremendous price to God. God loves us so much, and Yes, it is free for us to accept.

  2. Beautifully articulated, Archie…and very encouraging!
    Have a love-filled day extending it to others as He overflows you!

  3. Can’t remember where I read it but its an ancient Eastern Christian teaching that when we repose we are completely immersed in the Love that is God. If we have embraced that love as we walked this earth, it is a comfort and blessing to us and we are in Heaven. If we have rejected that love it burns like fire and is eternally tormenting. Just like a child avoids their parents and can’t stand their love when he has chosen to go his own way so we who reject our Father will find His love torturous to us. It will be Hell.
