Ways That God Shows His Love

Ephesians 2:4-10

What would God have to do to prove His love for you today? Everything that God does, He does for a specific purpose. He does nothing without cause or purpose.

His efforts to mankind is to show His love toward man. All that He does for man, He does because He loves mankind. He does nothing by chance or in desperation. He never looses control. God never throws the person away.

Read: Jere. 18:1-4.

The clay was marred in the hand of the Potter. The Potter didn't mar the clay. It marred itself, but the Potter made it again a vessel for His honor.

Mostly, man cannot see God's love in what God does on a daily basis. Often we look at God and say, "What are you doing to me, God?" God answers back in action and deed, "I am expressing my love for you." You have heard someone say, "That is a funny way to show love." Again, that may be our answer to God at certain times.

Each of us have also heard and probably used the phrase, when discipling our children, "This will hurt me more than it will you." I believe that God says that to us daily. All that He does in our behalf is to show His love for us.

Most Christians are not very lovable. Thus, God must make or even break us to prepare us to be loved. If we are not lovable or surrendered to receive His love then He may have to break us to a point of receiving His love.

Today I want to talk to you about "The Ways That God Shows His Love".





"Titus 3:5-7, "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life."

Listen to me very closely now; by all rights you and I should be on our way to a fiery hell. A place where the fire is not quenched, and the worm dieth not. A place where there is gnashing of teeth and the body is in torment forever and forever, but because of His great love for us He provided something better and then provided a way of getting there.

Every person can have the free salvation that has been provided for all mankind. God's love goes beyond the highest mountain; it goes beyond the deepest sea. His love is far reaching, and as you sit here today, His love has found you. If you are not saved, come to Him today. If you are saved, then surrender all to Him for His service.
