Pure Love

 Are you loved to perfection?  I know that sounds like a crazy question.  You must be asking  how could anyone be loved to perfection?  I mean really, no one is perfect, we are all flawed in one way or another.  Even the best relationships have there share of  problems. To be loved to perfection is a tall order. But beloved I am here to remind you that you are loved to perfection.

 I love the song J Moss sings titled, Good and Bad.  He sings about his short comings and yet God loving him through his good and his bad.  The lyrics say that anyone else would have given up on him  and goes on to say that if the shoe was on the other foot he would have given up himself. Yet, God never gave up on him and loved him through his imperfections.

John 3:16 says that God so loved the world that he gave his only son.  He gave his son knowing that on a daily basis we would let him down.  He gave his son for the liar, cheater and murder. That's a love that leaves me in awe.  He gave his son to save a world that would deny him the glory and honor he so rightly deserve. How many of us would give anything to someone we knew wouldn't appreciate it?  Who would willingly give there child's life to save the life of someone they knew would disappoint, disrespect and even deny them?

So again my beloved, I ask you, are you loved to perfection?    

Thank God for Jesus and His perfect love.  When I was drowning in my sins, he loved me over and over again.  When I had no one to talk to, and felt like I was alone in this world, he comforted and counseled my weary soul. When I made mistake after mistake he never left me alone. It took me a while to understand his unconditional love because it was something I'd never experienced.  There had been periods in my life when those who said they love let me down. There's also been time in my life when the opposite was true. For that reason it was difficult for me to understand how God could continue to love me.  Every time I made a mistake I thought God would leave me, but as I continued to read and fellowship with Him, I learned that He would never withdraw His vow to love me. In spite of me, He chose me and He loves  me to perfection. It is because of His love for me that I strive to be the kind of lover He is. 

1Corinthian13:4-8
Love suffers long,and is kind:love envieth not; love value not itself, is not puffed up. Doesn't behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; doesn't rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in truth. Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails;
