The kind of love God has toward us

What kind of love does God have toward us?

On one occasion, Paul described God’s love like this:

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,” (Ephesians 2:4)

According to the context, even before we were saved God had (and by default still does) a great love for us – a love too large to express in words alone.

Read Ephesians 2 and you will see that this great love, expressed through Jesus, was great enough to cover the multitude of our sins against God, to cover the vast distance between us and a right relationship with God, and to cover us all in the same household and family of God.

And that’s why Paul considered the love of God to be huge news for the world!

Does Prayer Change Anything?

In Eric Rauch’s article, “Does Prayer Change Anything,” Mr. Rauch observes the following:

“One of the best descriptions of the purpose of prayer can be found in Arthur W. Pink’s book, The Sovereignty of God.”

He quotes:

“Prayer is not so much an act as it is an attitude—an attitude of dependency, dependency upon God. Prayer is a confession of creature weakness, yea, of helplessness. Prayer is the acknowledgment of our need and the spreading of it before God.”

Paul said it another way: “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

What description of God means the most to me? The omnipresence of God (Psalm 139:7-12). We don’t have to go searching for God in order to find Him, for He is everywhere.
