Something that helps me connect w God

Today, we get to have a family day with some skiing & fun family activities. One of the things I love about my family is the diversity of ways that love is expressed among ourselves, despite the normal teasing that can go w siblings. Nevertheless, it’s lots of fun to see how my 8 year old son expresses love & how this is different from how my 11 year old daughter expresses love.
This has all got me to thinking about God’s love. It’s an absolutely outrageous adventure when I begin to think about God’s love. The more I think about God’s love & the diverse ways that His love is expressed the more captivated & riveting this love becomes to me.
* God’s love is expressed to us through our various relationships
*God’s love is expressed to us in various situations
*God’s love is expressed to us in our desires to help others & to be a blessing
What are some more ways that you’ve experienced God’s love?

  1. I AM NO EXPERT NOR ANY SCHOLAR SO WHAT FOLLOWS IN MY COMMENT IS JUST MY COMMENT, IT MAY NOT BE FULLY CORRECT. AS I HAD RESEARCHED THE GREEK MEANINGS OF THE WORD LOVE IN JESUS’ SPOKEN WORD I FOUND THAT THERE IS PRINCIPLED LOVE AND ALSO AFFECTIONATE LOVE. THE PRINCIPLED LOVE AS FOR OUR NEIGHBORS , COMMUNITY AND AFFECTIONATE LOVE AS IN MORE CLOSER RELATIONSHIPS. I UNDERSTAND TOO, THE SHARING OF THE GOOD NEWS OF THE KINGDOM OF JESUS CHRIST IS AT TIMES PRINCIPLED LOVE AND AT OTHER TIMES AFFECTIONATE LOVE IN THE COMPASSION FELT FOR THE ONE SO VERY MUCH IN NEED OF THE LOVE GOD OFFERS IN CHRIST. OF COURSE THERE IS THE WELL KNOWN “AGAPE LOVE” FOUND IN THE BODY OF CHRIST. BUT LAYING ALL ASIDE THERE IS NOTHING COMPARED TO THE WONDERFUL, GENTLE, SWEET LOVE THAT THE ONLY TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JEHOVAH-SHAMMAH IN CHRIST JESUS ONLY HE CAN GIVE.
