How God Loves



All too often, we soften and dilute,
Redefine things in line with our happiness pursuit.
Reshaping until it fits as a ‘hand in glove’.
Our understanding of right in this world that we love.

We now base ‘love’ on how good something feels.
And dismiss any pain as not part of the deal.
The one question I would like to propose to you:
Is this how God loves, is your love really true?

Does God love the wicked? Does He give them their way?
His word says He’s angry with them everyday.
Even though He’s upset, does He withhold from them gain?
Nay, He giveth them sunshine as well as the rain.

So what does this mean, are we then all the same?
As we all experience joy, and contrariwise, pain.
This is where the Truth of The Word will contend,
His temporary grace eventually comes to an end.

Sad thing for the wicked, is they can be misled.
Believing they deserve, when by grace they’re being fed.
God’s goodness still beckons that they would repent.
For the time is short. Yea, the day is far spent.

How should our love look? Is this not enough proof.
That in offering good, we still need to share truth.
So many people cringe, afraid of the word ‘judge’,
We don’t bother to rise up to speak the truth in love.

Well I’m here to boldly, yet humbly say -
Be very, very careful when things are going your way.
Lest you think yourself approved as blessed from above
If you really don’t know Jesus, you really don’t know love.

You see, Jesus is the Key. Indeed, Jesus is the LOVE.
And all of your temporary good, is not eternally enough.
To secure a life fulfilled in Him on Whom you need believe.
If your life reflects no allegiance to Him, you're likely being deceived.

Love desires good for you, even at great personal cost.
This is how God loves, seeking to save that which was lost.
There’s so much more to love, than to comfort when you call.
Expecting to only hear good from love, really isn’t love at all.

Here's The Word;

Psalm 7:8 - 11 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me. Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.


In Him,
Cros
