SEH 3 VERY GOOD TINGZ

GOD IS LOVE

God Is Love

God is Love: How do we Define Love?
“God is Love”, but how do we define it? The American Heritage Dictionary defines love as “an intense affection for another person based on familial or personal ties”. Often this “intense affection” stems from a sexual attraction for that other person. We love other people, or we say we love other people, when we are attracted to them and when they make us feel good. Notice that a key phrase in the dictionary definition of love is the phrase “based on”. This phrase implies that we love conditionally; in other words, we love someone because they fulfill a condition that we require before we can love them. How many times have you heard or said, “I love you because you are cute;” or “I love you because you take good care of me;” or “I love you because you are fun to be with”?

Our love is not only conditional, it is also mercurial. We love based on feelings and emotions that can change from one moment to the next. The divorce rate is extremely high in today’s society because husbands and wives supposedly stop loving one another-or they “fall out of love”. They may go through a rough patch in their marriage, and they no longer “feel” love for their spouse, so they call it quits. Evidently, their marriage vow of “till death do us part” means they can part at the death of their love for their spouse rather than at their physical death.

Can anyone really comprehend “unconditional” love? It seems the love that parents have for their children is as close to unconditional love as we can get without the help of God’s love in our lives. We continue to love our children through good times and bad, and we don’t stop loving them if they don’t meet the expectations we may have for them. We make a choice to love our children even when we consider them unlovable; our love doesn’t stop when we don’t “feel” love for them. This is similar to God’s love for us, but as we shall see, God’s love transcends the human definition of love to a point that is hard for us to comprehend.

God is Love: How does God Define Love?
The Bible tells us that “God is Love” (1 John 4:8). But how can we even begin to understand that truth? There are many passages in the Bible that give us God’s definition of love. The most well known verse is John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” So one way God defines love is in the act of giving. However, what God gave (or should we say, “who” God gave) was not a mere gift-wrapped present; God sacrificed His only Son so that we, who put our faith in His Son, will not spend eternity separated from Him. This is an amazing love, because we are the ones who choose to reject God, yet it’s God who mends the separation through His intense personal sacrifice, and all we have to do is accept His gift.

Another great verse about God’s love is found in Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” In this verse and in John 3:16, we find no conditions placed on God’s love for us. God doesn’t say, “as soon as you clean up your act, I’ll love you; ” nor does He say, “I’ll sacrifice my Son if you promise to love Me.” In fact, in Romans 5:8, we find just the opposite. God wants us to know that His love is unconditional, so He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for us while we were still unlovable sinners. We didn’t have to get clean, and we didn’t have to make any promises to God before we could experience His love. His love for us has always existed, and because of that, He did all the giving and sacrificing long before we were even aware that we needed His love.

God is Love: It’s Unconditional
God is Love, and His love is very different from human love. God’s love is unconditional, and it’s not based on feelings or emotions. He doesn’t love us because we’re lovable or because we make Him feel good; He loves us because He is love. He created us to have a loving relationship with Him, and He sacrificed His own Son (who also willingly died for us) to restore that relationship.

So because the response from Di Artist’s interview went so well I wanted to hear what he had to say
Hey, how you doing, just checking in to see how you feel about what the people had to say?
Di Artist: Hey mum, you know I was just here reading the comments, I feel good.
I really felt good about what the people had to say and I will take their advice, I saw where someone said I should pray and use the Psalms, I like that and will continue to do that. My favorite Psalm is Psalm 7, I feel that  it was written just for me.
In regards to my career, I love music so much, first of all I want people to be able to feel my music the way I do. I saw where someone said I should have pushed more and I agree that I should have, I got discouraged before because I had to almost beg to voice a song on a rythm and I should have been stronger,but now I am in a better place  and I will never forget Joe for what he has done for me. I will still push hard and work hard even more now because I have a second chance and I see that people love me.
Mum, I feel empty and full at the same time, I feel so good, I felt I was carrying a load and I finally got it off my back. The things that I spoke about are things that I have held inside so long and never spoke about them, it felt good to get it out so I feel free.  I feel full now with the lessons I have learnt, now I see that what I went through was necessary, I learnt a lot. At one point I considered myself so much of a superstar, that was not necessary. I needed to be where I was to grow and learn to be humble . I feel so different and I would not change the experience for anything . I used to feel so down about things I was unable to see that I was in a place where God wanted me.  Never again will I act the way I did before. I will put my past aside and move forward, I feel now I am able to forgive more because I understand that everything that happened were lessons in life. I cannot say enough how different I feel.
Please tell my fans I will never disappoint them again. I will work very hard because it is they who made me in the first place and tell them I promise that I will do my best for them and my music.
