Love Demonstrated

But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

Love Demonstrated There are two ways that God demonstrates His Love toward us. The first way was when He sent His sinless Son to die on a cross for sinful humanity. The second way that God demonstrates His love for us is through people.

And hope makes not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. (Romans 5:5)
Why did God put His love in us? Because the Bible calls us ambassadors, or representatives of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20).

God told Israel in Leviticus 23:22, "And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reap, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am the LORD your God."

God has always demonstrated His love for humanity through humanity. The prosperity that God bestows upon His people requires them to care for the poor. God has not changed. Jesus preached to multitudes of people daily, and when they needed food He fed them.

Then Abigail made haste, and took two hundred loaves, and two bottles of wine, and five sheep ready dressed, and five measures of parched corn, and an hundred clusters of raisins, and two hundred cakes of figs, and laid them on asses. And she said unto her servants, Go on before me; behold, I come after you. But she told not her husband Nabal. And it was so, as she rode on the ass, that she came down by the covert on the hill, and, behold, David and his men came down against her; and she met them. (1 Samuel 25:18-20)

When David and his mighty men needed food Abigail provided more than what was needed, after the death of her husband, David sent for her and they were married. Have you demonstrated the love of God that has been shed in your heart by the Holy Ghost? Dr Bernard Jones

Father help me love people with the love that you gave me, Father continue to love through me. Amen.
