This is an excerpt from my book entitled, “OH, I JUST GOT IT FROM THE TOP”. Haven’t we all wondered how we came to be? And what are we doing here and where are we going?
Love is the motivating factor behind it all. When you come to understand that the very beginning of Love is actually God Himself, you will have those questions answered. God will give you the reason you are here and He will direct you where to go. The more that you learn about His love the more you come to love Him. That is why our love for someone deepens because we learn more about them. It is the same with God.
We were created in God’s image and likeness. His image and His likeness have all the characteristics of love. In 2 Corinthians chapter 13, it states that love is patient, kind, forgiving, enduring and believes good things and that love never fails and never ends.
It was an act of love that created Adam and Eve in the beginning and even though they turned away from that LOVE, God never stopped loving them. So much so that He sent the Son of His love, Jesus, to die for all of us so that we could be born again out of this act of love.
Love started it all and will continue throughout all Eternity. The Bible says that, “God is love.” 1 John 4:8
Just as this tiny wonder in the womb learned that it came out of love, we are meant to continue sharing the love of God that was birthed in us.
