God: loved us first and last…
John 13:34 (KJV) “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.”
We experience many folks in this life who will declare to the utmost that they love and it is a love that will kill them if left undeclared; when it is time to test the validity of that emotion, it fizzles out after certain conditions have been met.
Must not have been love.
There is someone who has made a declaration, but yet still HE put action to those words; they have stood the test of time and by gosh, they reverberate within our souls even when we feel as if the world has deserted us.
His name is Jesus and His kind of love, I can live with any day. He loves until it hurts and then there is more love.
