Father Love 3

Discussion in 'Doctrinal Discussions' started by Noblemen, Sep 5, 2015.

  1. If children grow and mature within the family where their father and mother genuinely love each other, these children will also be able to manifest that same kind of love. How do children know what love is? Many believe that children learn what love is because they are recipients of love directed toward them from their parents. This is misleading because when young children have love directed toward them they do not know what it is. They learn what love is when they see the love their father gives their mother, and when the mother direct her love toward the father. Before this manifestation of father – mother love, children cannot understand what love is, even when it is directed toward them.
    After they see the love that is manifested between father and mother, then they are capable of receiving the love given to them. So it is with the believer who is in Christ. If God directed his love toward the believer that believer would not know what it was nor could he receive it. When the believe sees (knows) the Father love the Son and the Son love the Father, then he becomes the recipient of that love. The Father loveth the Son, therefore the Father loves everyone that is been born again because this places them "in Christ," where the love of God exists. Because we are in Christ the Father loves us also. Outside of Christ the Father loves no one. The Father has never looked outside His Son for anything especially to manifest His love.
  2. 'For God so loved the world,
    that He gave His only begotten Son,
    that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish,
    but have everlasting life.
    For God
    sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world;
    but that the world through Him might be saved.'

    (Joh 3:16)

    'But God commendeth His love toward us,
    in that,
    while we were yet sinners,
    Christ died for us.'

    (Rom 5:8)

  3. 'And we have seen and do testify
    that the Father sent the Son
    to be the Saviour of the world.
    Whosoever shall confess
    that Jesus is the Son of God,
    God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
    And we have known and believed
    the love that God hath to us.
    God is love;
    and he that dwelleth in love
    dwelleth in God,
    and God in him.'

    (1Jn 4:14-16)

    'In this was manifested the love of God toward us,
    because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world,
    that we might live through Him.
    Herein is love,
    not that we loved God,
    but that He loved us,
    and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.'

    (1Jn 4:9,10)
