What is love? Love is a relationship which
has got many dimensions and happens to be the
strongest chord between two people. 1 Corinthians
13:4-8 gives us the definition of love. If this is
the definition of love I believe God is the only one
who loves like this. True love is undoubtedly the
noblest thing in earth because it is a reflection of
God Himself. Men love………but GOD IS LOVE. Love is His
very nature and essence. Deep down in the hearts of
all men is a hunger for God. This longing itself is a
proof that God loves us.
An Atheist once wrote upon a child’s slate the words
GOD IS NOWHERE, but the innocence of the child
triumphing over the unbelief read it as GOD IS NOW
HERE. How true it is……….He is Omnipresent.
remember a true story which I read from an article
written by the famous Pediatrician and cancer
specialist, Dr. James Brown. Dr. Brown had a patient
called Bobby who was only 4 years old. He was
suffering from Leukemia. The painful chemotherapy was
over. After one year of treatment, Dr. wanted to give
him another injection which is more painful than
chemotherapy and also more time consuming. Dr.
explained to Bobby about the injection and requested
him to co-operate with the medical staff. Bobby
agreed to this on one condition that he will say
Psalms 23 loudly while the injection is in process.
Dr. agreed to this. Injection started and little
Bobby started saying Psalms 23 loudly. He has neither
cried of pain nor shook his body. When the injection
was over he said the injection was not painful at all.
He had strong faith in God’s love and care.
are helpless, God is there to give us strength. Don’t
you feel God’s love is miraculous? Psalms 91:15 say
“I will rescue them from all troubles and will reward
them with long life”
I believe He loves children more because St. Mathew
18:1-2 illustrates that the apostles had an argument
among themselves that who is the greatest among them.
Jesus knew this and He wanted to say who is the
greatest. He showed one child and said, if you are
not becoming like these children you will not enter
into the Kingdom of God. The greatest person in the
Kingdom is the one who is like a child who do not
worry about being greater or important than others
are. From this we can understand that He expects
elders to be like children. The innocence, strong
faith, forgiving nature, endless hope, true love etc.
may be the qualities He has seen in children. It is
always so nice to remember Jesus in our thoughts and
deeds because His presence in our heart sends a
feeling of comfort to us.
God’s infinite love is seen in this that a sinner is
not abandoned, instead he loves the sinner. He
hates sin but He loves sinners. He has proved His
love in so many ways, but mainly in this as it is
given in John 3:16, which I feel is the most valuable
sentence in the Holy Bible. “He has sent His only
begotten Son into the world to save sinners”. Jesus
Christ as the embodiment of the Divine Love laid aside
His glory and finally gave His life for us.
The greatest power in the world is not the Hydrogen
bomb, but it is the redeeming love of God. The
Hydrogen bomb may destroy the whole world but only the
redeeming love of God can make it anew. St. John
15:12 says” Love one another as I love you which
clearly shows He loves us and above all He is the only
one who loves us unconditionally. His promise is that
“whoever comes to me, I will not cast them out”. I am
sure we all like to go to a person who loves us
unconditionally or to a person who will be with us in
our Happiness and sorrows or to a person whom we can
trust. So let us cast all our worries and sorrows to
Him and enjoy His love.
