"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
"Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 3:35, 37-39
"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13
"Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love." John 15:9
It is the most amazing thing in the world to know Christ, and I only know true love and happiness because He loves me. You too can know Christ if you trust Him and Him alone for salvation, repent of your sin and follow Him all the days of your life.
Seriously, it is that easy. However if you choose not to trust in Christ, you are in BIG TROUBLE. If you trust in Christ you will go to Heaven, if you don't you will go to HELL! PERIOD! It doesn't matter how "good of a person you are." If you do not know Christ, then God will not know you!
If I have struck a nerve, or if you want to know more, feel free to ask! I want you to! I want everyone to go to Heaven. I do not want any of you to go to Hell!
" If you love Me, you will keep My commandments." Jesus -John 14:15
In light of the love of Christ, we can know love for our fellow brothers, and if we are blessed- then with our spouse too. ♥
Just a reminder to everyone, whether you apply this to your spouse or to your neighbor:
"Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails...But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love." 1 Corinthians 13:4-8,13
