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

loveletter

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.
