In the beginning was real Love: perfect Love, consisting of flawless wisdom, understanding, and power. Love created all things that were created and Love gives life. Because true love is outwardly focused, Love desired an object for His love, so Love made a man – unlike anything else He created – to partake in, and of, the unbroken, eternal relationship that exists between the three persons of the One God, Who is Love.
Love gave this man purpose, direction, and choice so this man would live in the true love and eternal life he was created for. But this first man, Adam, didn’t choose Love. He chose to believe a lie instead of Love. He chose self, which is the opposite of Love. Adam broke his flawless relationship with God, thus separating himself, and all mankind after him, from this perfect relationship with God and from the perfect creation.
Mankind and the rest of creation were then subjected to futility, corruption, and death; but because of Love, they were subjected in HOPE. Mankind continues to choose self rather than Love, while Love longs for that eternal relationship. So, Love made a way to restore the relationship that Adam broke because we cannot become holy on our own.
The good news of this story is that believing Love did this for you reconciles your heart back to the eternal relationship that Love created you for.
The heart of Love wants your story to merge back into His everlasting story and it’s all up to YOU because YOU are living your story.
