There is much confusion in the world and in the Church of Jesus Christ what the love of God really is. God’s love weaves its way through scripture like veins of gold and is deeply spiritual to the transforming of the soul, but intensely painful to the natural man God originally created us to be, to transform us into the likeness of Jesus Christ. The love of God initiates the grace of God by the gift of faith that is totally energized by the love of God. Without the love of God being shed abroad in our hearts through the Holy Spirit, mortifying the deeds of our flesh and bringing our death and His life with transforming power there can be no salvation of the soul.
Matthew 24:3 – And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? Matthew 24:12 – And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. The love of God can wax cold and the Christian not even know it. It did in me, but He brought me back to first love and He can do that for you as well.
