Giving Love!

Giving Love!

The store fronts at the shopping malls are beautifully decorated in red, roses, hearts, and cupids.  They are a clear indication that February is upon us. At Global One80, we want to take advantage of this occasion to present a perspective of love.  This is, to consider loving the way God loved.

We believe that love is truly an active verb and in expansion. If we did a contest about the most known bible verse in the scriptures, it is very possible that the winner would be John 3:16. The verse is a powerful and majestic declaration of the gospel, the good news of the perfect and sublime love for sinners of a holy and just God: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” God sacrificially has given, because of his love, the best and the most precious of him, his son Jesus Christ. He has done this, so humans would enjoy fellowship with him eternally.  To make this possible, He gave, because He loved. We could be tempted to think that this kind of love only comes from God, but it is true that in I John 3:16, the apostle continues to expand what had been declared in his gospel. “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.”

In this we know what love is.  He gave his life for us; so we should be willing to laid our lives for others. At the gospel declaration, we find God “conjugating the verb love”, and as a consequence giving his best. But in the letter of John, children of God are encouraged to be like the Father, this is loving and giving.

Amy Carmichael, a faithful missionary from last century who dedicated her life in India to minister to orphans and desenfranchised, said the following: “You can always give without love, but you never can love without giving.”

Dear friends, the same way, we at Global One80 encourage you to open your heart and consider to give to others the best of you, and this only for God’s glory.

Each church is independent and autonomous and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that, therefore, Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from the dictation or patronage of the other.

We believe that a visible church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with Him in baptism and associated for worship, work and fellowship.

We believe that to these visible churches were committed for observance “until He comes,” the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper; and that God has laid upon these churches the task of persuading a lost world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him as Lord and Master. We believe that righteous living, good works and proper social concern are essential products of the gospel.

We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God.
We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high priestly intercession for His people and His personal, visible return to the world according to His promise.
