Love Notes and the Father’s Love Letter

God’s Love Letter to Us and Inspiration From Kirk Franklin and CeCe Winans

"Love" by Kirk Franklin and CeCe Winans

I love the song above, and how it delves into the meaning of love, and how God loves us. What is love and how does God call us to love? Here are some notes from the Bible about what is more than just a four-letter word:


Let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13

God shows His love to us all throughout the Bible. The video below called The Father ‘s Love Letter shows us just how much God loves us. It is a love letter from God, created from verses in the Bible, and tells the truth of how much God loves us. I first saw it TBN a few years ago, and a while back when one of my professors had us read a spiritual piece we enjoyed to the class, I shared it with my classmates.

The video was narrated by Roy Lamont and written by Barry Adams. Visit author’s site Fathersloveletter.com for more information.

 

Prayer: Lord, I love you! Let me learn the true meaning of love and let me bask in Your presence and Love each day. Allow me to focus on You, so You can show me how I am to love others.

Word: Isaiah 40:29-31

Hope in the Lord…

29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Spotlight: 21 Reasons to Love 21:03

The Bible says in Matthew 5:16: “Even so let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”

One of the features of DreaminSoul.com will be special “Spotlights” of artists, especially young artists, who are using their talents to glorify God and to motivate people of all ages. These artists aren’t focused on placing the spotlight on themselves, but they use their gifts to shine a light upward to put the focus on God.

As a prelude of the “Spotlights” feature this post is dedicated to the contemporary gospel group 21:03. The group consists of three talented young men, Torrence Greene, Evin Martin, and Jor’el Quinn, who minister to the world through a combination of soulful singing, energetic dance and unique life experiences. The group was brought together by the hit-producing team PAJAM (Paul “pda” Allen, J. Moss, and Walter Kearney), on January 21, 2003, and that date is the inspiration the name 21:03 arose from. Since today is the anniversary of their founding, let’s go down the list of why 21:03 shines:

19. “Total Attention” Is Hot!

Every track on 21:03’s sophomore album is unique, memorable, and enjoyable. Featuring a blend of smooth meaningful melodies, and high-energy beats, with an indescribable combination of R&B and hip-hop with a dash of traditional Gospel, these guys are paving a distinctive path in Gospel music. They give an alternative to all the negativity we are bombarded with each day. The album was also listed as one of the Top 10 Albums of 2008 on the Gospel Music Channel.
