Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglican Church http://www.stjohnsashfield.org.au, Ashfield, New South Wales. Illustrates Jesus' description of himself "I am the Good Shepherd" (from the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 11). This version of the image shows the detail of his face. The memorial window is also captioned: "To the Glory of God and in Loving Memory of William Wright. Died 6th November, 1932. Aged 70 Yrs." (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

God is love.

“This is real love – not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” (1 John 4:10)

If you had to summarize God in only one word, what would that word be?

Steve Henning waited fifty-seven years to hear a single word. As a baby, he had contracted spinal meningitis. Since penicillin was being saved for the war effort in 1943, he received no treatment and fell deaf. In 2001, however, a new surgical procedure was developed. The doctors implanted a device in Steve’s ear, but then the waiting game began. The device could only be activated when the swelling went down—and that took six weeks.

When the moment of truth came, the doctors activated the cochlear implant. Steve’s wife was invited to say something, to see if her husband could hear it. She leaned toward him and gently said, “I love you.” A great smile came across his face. The first sound he heard was the affirmation of love.

It is a lesson worth remembering as we talk about God to those who do not know Him. The first and most important words should be affirmations of His love. It’s a beautiful, desirable message that helps the spiritually deaf to hear God saying, “I love you.”

Your View of God Really Matters …

One of God’s most amazing characteristics is His love. It is the most powerful and irresistible force in the universe. Learn to communicate His love as you represent Him to a world that is desperate for genuine love.

What More Does God Say

Psalm 103:13; Ephesians 2:4-9

Because God is love, I will tell others how much He loves them!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
