Excerpt from my book
Love, A 40 Day Biblical Approach to Love
For God so loved the world…
We have these images of God in our heads.
He’s up there, in the clouds and has a long white beard. Most of our visions of God don’t include a view of God as a lover. He’s all powerful, holy and on top of that creator of everything.
Yet, it is sometimes hard for us to fathom that He loves us, really loves us. God, our God is an intimate God. He wants to touch us, to get in close, and hold hands and dance cheek to cheek with us.
God so loves us that He will do almost anything for us.
Think About this:
- What ideas did you have as a kid about God? What did he look like? Act like?
- Do you still have those same ideas as you have grown? Why? Why not?
- What needs to change in your mind and life to recognize the God of love?
- Is there a place for a loving God in your world? The world of your family and friends?
