Timeless.

Timeless.

What is timeless?

Love is timeless.

God is timeless.

God is love.

 

If you looked at the word of God from cover to cover, beginning to end, Genesis to Revelation; we would see the general theme of love.

 

Early on we read verses like Jeremiah 31:3

“…I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore, I have continued to extend faithful love to you.”

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world…”

Verses such as 1 John 4:7-12 exemplifies how our knowing God is knowledge of His love.  Love is from God, love is of God, and love is God.

If God was, is, and always shall be; thereby timeless – therefore so is love.

If we actually did a biblical search on:

  • The love of God

  • God is love

  • God of love

  • God’s love

And so on, we would find hundreds and possibly thousands of examples of His love.

A love which is freely given.

We understand how much God loves us. From the beginning, we see how God does everything in love.

 

“Hold up” “wait a minute” you stop me at this point, you brow shows concern, and the questions begin.

“Ah, you remember the flood, the ark, and Noah; where was the love?

“Or how about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah?”

And I am sure the list could go on and on.

 

At this point, I would simply smile, sit back, and open the word of God.

Let’s take a look at some of the issues you mentioned and see if, in fact, love was the reason.

We know God is a just God. We also know God, the Father, disciplines those who don’t adhere to his word; correct?

And discipline is an act of love.

Like or not, a parent disciples their child out of love. Discipline is thereby a corrective action to mold us, make us, bend us, and at times; break us.

As humans, we have fleshly desires, selfish attitude, and self-interest at heart. However, you may feel that those human traits or characteristics are by design as since God created us; then that fault is on Him.

You do realize we were created in the image of God. We have free will, and we also know God’s will.

Our one key facet which makes us desire to do the will of the Father is we know we were created in love to be in a relationship with our heavenly Father.

Then why the flood? Why Sodom and Gomorrah?

Those people which lost their lives choose self over God. Rather than living self-less and according to God’s commandments. They wanted to do their own thing, selfishly live the way they wanted to; with no regard for their Creator.

Whoa, this paper seems to be getting a bit deep for my liking; can’t I just live normally and enjoy life?!

My question would be, define normal and the things that you find enjoyable. You don’t have to tell me, simply keep that answer for yourself. Your choice is between you and the Father.

Now go a step further with what you defined as normal and those things you believe to be enjoyable. Ask yourself: Is what I am doing, how I am living, pleasing in the eyes of the Father?

I am not here to judge you or perhaps make you feel guilty. Your conscience, by His design, is a moral compass as it were. The Bible is what God wants for us. How to live, how to act, how to enjoy, and how we are to conduct ourselves.

As I started out with regards to Timeless. Hopefully, I have illustrated:

Love is timeless.

God is timeless.

God is love.

Love is timeless.

May you find joy in knowing the Father through the Son.

May you always have a loving relationship with God and others.

Lastly, l leave you with this verse to ponder:

2 Thessalonians 3:5

“May the Lord direct your hearts to God’s love and Christ’s endurance.”

Be blessed.
