Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding there has been a lot of discussion on ‘love’. Thousands of comments have been shared on Social Media about Bishop Michael Currie’s powerful wedding address on how the power of love has the potential to make a difference in people’s lives and transform communities, indeed the world.
As a true Scouser, I am all too familiar with the 1976 song by the Beatles “ All you need is love”, but at the end of the day the words “I love you” or “All you need is love” are just words with no meaning. To fully experience the power of love requires us to put the needs of others before our own, for some it may involve a big sacrifice of time, energy, and commitment.
I had the privilege of attending a wedding anniversary party last weekend of Ronny and Kathryn Owe, a wonderful couple whose love for each other is evident for all to see. It was a beautiful to witness the power of love between husband and wife.
At the heart of Christianity is the message of love. We read in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He sent his one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not die but have everlasting life”.
You see when God says He loves us; He means it in every way. The Bible tells us that God is love and that there is nothing that we can do that would make Him love us anymore. He longs to have a relationship with us and to embrace us.
Saint Augustine speaks of God’s incomprehensible and unchangeable love for us “ God loves each of us as if there were only one of us”. How amazing!
Receive God’s unconditional love today and know a thousand times over GOD LOVES YOU!
