TOPIC: DIVINE LOVE I

Read
John 15:13-14

13. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

14. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

Memorise
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1 John 4:10

Divine love is the love that is of God. This is a love that gives all. John 3:16 says God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. This is a love that does not hold back at all. Romans 8:32 says:

“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”

The day Jesus Christ was crucified, He was stripped naked He surrendered all! Divine love is powerful because it is unchangeable. 1 John 4:8 says God is love. Thus the love of God cannot change because God Himself cannot change (Hebrews 13:8 , Malachi 3:6 ).
This means that when God falls in love with you, it is until the end. The latter part of John 13:1 says:

having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.”

If you have never been disappointed by a friend yet, get ready, it may occur anytime. By the time you are as old as I am, you may have been disappointed by many friends. God, however, never disappoints.

He is the One who says, I will never leave you nor forsake you and believe me honestly, He means it.God has two levels of people He loves. There is the general love He has for everybody. That is the love spoken of in John 3:16 . It is because of this love that Jesus came to die for everybody. It is because of this love that we all enjoy rain, the sun and the likes (Matthew 5:45 ).However, #1John 4:19 says, We love Him, because He first loved us.

This set of people who reciprocate His general love get to enjoy His greater love. These are the ones about whom He says I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me (Proverbs 8:17 ).To enjoy this great divine love, you have to love Him and He says in John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. If you want to enjoy this unfailing love, holiness is a must.

Point

Live holy and God will love you specially.

Hymns
WONDERFUL STORY OF LOVE

WONDERFUL STORY OF LOVE

1. Wonderful story of love;
Tell it to me again;
Wonderful story of love;
Wake the immortal strain!
Angels with rapture announce it,
Shepherds with wonder receive it;
Sinner, O won’t you believe it.
Wonderful story of love.

CHORUS
Wonderful! Wonderful!
Wonderful!
Wonderful story of love!

2. Wonderful story of love,
Though you are far away;
Wonderful story of love;
Still He doth call today;
Calling from Calvary’s mountain,
Down from the crystal bright
fountain,
E’en from the dawn of creation,
Wonderful story of love.

Jesus provides a rest;
Wonderful story of love;
For all the pure and blest,
Rest in those mansions above us,
With those who’ve gone on before us,
Singing the rapturous chorus,
Wonderful story of love.
