Is God the “lover of your soul”? Lately, it seems I have been so much more aware of God’s love. We hear of it all the time in church, read it in Scripture and sing it in song—but do we really know that God loves us and do we really love Him back?
Well, first of all, the way you “love” God is to obey Him. Heaven is His home and earth is His footstool, what are you going to do, buy Him a Rolex? Second, God’s love is the most powerful force in the universe. It is unstoppable. Whether you love Him or not, He still loves you. But whether you get to be with Him for eternity, well…that’s up to you.
God may love you in spite of yourself but nothing unclean can be in His presence. Your spiritual filth comes from Adam’s disobedience to God, but your spiritual cleansing comes from Jesus who took the “capital punishment” for your crimes. He died for you, for crying out loud. Don’t you get it? His love is so great, He left perfect heaven to come to unclean earth to rescue us and redeem us back to Himself. His love never fails; ours does daily.
But His unfailing love is there until we draw our last breath. You choose what you want to do and you’ll die the same dirty rag you were born and you will go where all filth goes—hell eternal! You submit your dead, dirty soul to Him, ask forgiveness and start your journey with Him and He will cleanse you and prepare you for where all cleanliness goes—heaven eternal!
You can continue to call that religious ideation, or a myth or some nutty story or you can buckle down and seek for the truth. You seek God—you’ll find God, and this current epoch of time, when you seek God, you’ll run into Jesus. No lie—enjoying the presence of God in unrestricted ecstasy and joy is God’s absolute guarantee IF you bind yourself to Him while you still draw breath here. 1 Corinthians 13:12 and Ephesians 3:16-19…check it out. Endure the fire…it’s producing pure gold!
