LOVE Week 11: Envisions Eternity

To ask who is God, we must first answer what is love.

God’s Love for is unseen and intangible and that is what makes His Love permeant and unstoppable!

john 6:26-27 ampc

“Jesus answered them, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, you have been searching for Me, not because you saw the miracles and signs but because you were fed with the loaves and were filled and satisfied. Stop toiling and doing and producing for the food that perishes and decomposes [in the using], but strive and work and produce rather for the [lasting] food which endures [continually] unto life eternal; the Son of Man will give (furnish) you that, for God the Father has authorized and certified Him and put His seal of endorsement upon Him.”

In John 6, Jesus is a city near the lake of Tiberias and feeds five thousand with two fish and five loaves. Afterward, knowing that there was still work to be done in other cities, Jesus leaves Tiberias, heading to Capernaum, a nearby city. The next day, when the people of Tiberias notice that Jesus and his disciples were nowhere to be found, they went looking for them. John 6:26-27 is Jesus’ response when the people of Tiberias find and start questioning him.

Jesus is basically saying the same thing that he will say later in John 20:29 to Thomas, when he appears to him, after being raised from the grave. “Thomas, now that you’ve seen me, you believe. But there are those who have never seen me with their eyes but have believed in me with their hearts, and they will be blessed even more!”

Anyone can believe something when they are given physical proof. The people of Tiberias believed that Jesus could multiply food because they were able to taste and touch the food. Thomas believed that Jesus rose from the grave because he was able to see and hear Jesus in the flesh. Yet this physicality that we place such an emphasis on in life, is both fleeting and failing.

True power lies in what we cannot perceive with our physical senses, for those are things that we can only see by faith.

Fear says, “Give me proof.” Love says, “I already see it.”

So who will be speaking for you, Fear or Love?

Until Weekend Wellness,

Spread your love for AD!
