God's Love For Humanity

Its is hard for a mortal man to understand the love God has for the human race. The love story of God and man did not begin when God sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ to come redeem us from our sins. The story began at the beginning of creation. As you read from Genesis, everything else apart from man came to be after God's word came forth. Man was created after the image and likeness of God. This means that Man is very special to God. Since he is made in the image and likeness of God, this means that every time God looks at this special creation of his, he sees himself.

Therefore being a special creation to God he gave as dominion over all the earth and everything in it. God's love for mankind is constant. There is nothing you can ever do to earn it. He loves us all the same. Sometimes its hard to imagine that his love for the rapists and murderers is the same to the love he has for the Christian believers. When we understand this, loving one another becomes much easier. Our love for one another is usually based on what we are getting from the other person. Hate your enemies and love those who love you is the norm.

God's love is different. God can never change his love for you no matter what you do. Even if you have done great evils he still loves you the same. I know that sometimes we do some things and wonder how God can ever forgive us or love us the same way. The truth is, whether you kill or lie the sin carries the same magnitude before God. There is nothing he cannot forgive if you go before him and ask for forgiveness. God's love for you is so great that he wants to establish his relationship with you.
