Hello everyone, I hope that you are all doing great!
I’m deeply grateful to God to share with you a new piece of work called « We Love Him Because He First Loved Us ».
It’s a contemplation of two passages from the first Letter of John — one of the twelve disciples of Christ. The first passage is the fifth chapter, verse 7. If I have time, I will try to describe the whole story behind that particular verse.
It goes : « For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. ».
The second verse is the very title of the piece, in the fourth chapter, verse 19.
John, composing this letter, is now an older person. And when writing those beautiful words, he might have wrote them, remembering all the beautiful moments He had with the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth Himself.
Those words from John are heavy and honest, and you can feel the profound history of them. John eyewitnessed everything, even The Crucifixion. He was with Jesus, when Jesus started. He thus has a unique position in sharing those words.
I personally gave my life to Christ-Jesus, twelve years ago, because He first Loved me as John wrote. Not in a church, nor a denomination, but alone in my room, after having read the Gospels and prayed. I hadn’t ever searched Him nor loved Him before He did. And if you personally believe in your heart, God loves you too.
God bless you all!
