The Manner Of God’s Love To Us

1 Jn. 3:1-3

The writer of the epistle of first John could not understand the depth or height of God’s love toward those that have given their lives to Him, to the extent that He raised them to the status of being called children of God. These were the same people that God said “it grieved him that He made” men, when their thoughts were continually evil everyday (Gen. 6:5-6). These were the people that made God became angry to the extent of destroying the first known world. Yet in spite of these disqualifications, God still loves man and those who respond to His call of salvation, He called them children. He overlooks their inadequacies and weaknesses. This is perfect love in action.

Point of Emphasis:         Behold, what manner of love God has bestowed unto us.

Prayer Point:                  Lord, help me to have Your own kind of love for other people.

LE TYPE D’AMOUR DE  DIEU ENVERS NOUS

1JEAN 3 :1-3

L’auteur de l’épître de 1Jean ne pouvait pas comprendre la profondeur et la grandeur de l’amour de Dieu envers ceux qui lui ont donné leur vie, à tel point qu’il les a élevés au statut d’être appelés enfants de Dieu. C’étaient ces mêmes gens dont Dieu dit : « qu’il fut affligé en son cœur d’avoir fait l’homme » quand toutes les pensées de leur cœur se portaient chaque jour uniquement vers le mal.  (Ge. 6 :5-6).  C’étaient ces gens-là qui courroucèrent Dieu à tel point qu’il voulait détruire le premier monde qui exista. Encore est-il que malgré ces disqualifications, Dieu aime quand même l’homme et ceux qui répondent à l’appel de son salut, lesquels il a appelés enfants. Il passe les yeux sur leurs inaptitudes et leurs faiblesses. Voici l’amour parfait en action.

Point essentiel : Voyez quel amour le père nous a témoigné.

Axe de prière : Seigneur, aide-moi à avoir ton type d’amour pour autrui.
