I have not sign up for any church retreat for a long time.
But, for some reason… when I heard about the MORE camp 2014, I felt a nudge in my heart – to sign up for the camp. I am glad I did.
I never understand what FIRST love mean. Finally, I now know what first love mean. It doesn’t mean my first love towards God… but FIRST love means, The LORD; He FIRST love us. The FIRST love means God loves us FIRST. That is first love. It is not our love toward God, but His love towards us.
Abide in God, enjoying His love – should be our (Christian) lifestyle.
Often we try to act love, but out of our act of love produce nothing. Action does not mean love, but love produces action.
1 John 4: 19 – We love because He FIRST love us.
It is never about what we do, how much we serve but is about how much God loves us.
God loves is unconditional; Because of His love, we received:
- Deliverance, etc…
Because He loves us, He display His power.
A paradigm shift.
Man rely a lot of human wisdom. We asked for wisdom.
It is better to have FAITH in Jesus Christ.
When I heard about this, I was blown away. In the past (before I was married), people always tell me that the love of God is like our earthly father. I couldn’t relate to that because I have never tasted the love of a father, but when I marry Greg, I tasted the unconditional of a husband. I felt the Lord is saying to me that his love is just like how Greg has love me – unconditional.
I allow Jesus in my life, I accept His love. His love filled me and with the realization that Jesus loves me, my hurt seems small and I am able to move on.
The fact that I do not need to earn Jesus’ love… just simply amazing. God created us in His image just because He loves us.
