God is good.

Psalm 119:68 tells us.  'God, You are good and You do good.'

Simple verse.  Easy to memorize.  You could meditate on that verse for 700 years and it would still be a great verse.

God is love.

'The love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent His only Son into the world that we might live through Him.  In this is love, not that we have loved God but that He loved us.'  (I John 4:9, 10)

God is good - and God is love.

When we use words, we use them a couple of different ways.

We use them as ONE WORD, ONE MEANING.

If I say, 'I love you and Joelene loves you,' I'm using the same word with the same meaning.  We both love you.

But I can also use ONE WORD with DIFFERENT MEANINGS.

'I love you and I love Joelene.'

I don't want to hurt your feelings, but I don't love you the way I LUVVVV Joelene.  Fair enough?  I LUVVVV her - but I don't LUVVVV you.

Do you get me?

Some of you are like:  'Well, I'm GLAD you don't LUVVVV me the way you LUVVVV Joelene.'

Same word ... different meanings.

God is good.  But God isn't good the way you and I are good - not even close - but it's the same word.

God is love.  But God doesn't love the way you and I love.  'As far as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for you.'  (Psalm 103:11)

'Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life ... ' (John 15:13)

That's what Jesus did for you.  He made a way for you to have relationship with the Father God by His death on a cross.

He really, really, really LUVVVVVs you.

And be blessed.
