The Love Of God-My Greatest Asset
by Ngozi Nwoke
10/10/2017 / Christian Living
What is your greatest asset? What do you cherish most? Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (Matthew 6:21). Your success in life is determined by your most important asset. In this article I share my greatest asset-the love of God.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life - John 3:16 (NKJV)
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things - Romans 8:32 (NKJV).
We love Him because He first loved us - I John 4:19 (NKJV).
The love of God is the reason I can face tomorrow. I am aware that His love for me will see me through the day. If God did not spare Jesus for the love that He has for us (John 3:16), there is nothing that He will not freely give or do for us (Romans 8:32).
Why the love of God is my greatest asset
1. Fear is destroyed.
When I remember that God loves me and will not allow any evil to come upon me, every form of fear disappears (1 John 4:18). God is the Almighty God and every being and thing bows before Him, including whatever is causing fear in me. God's love gives me the assurance that I am covered.
Peace floods my mind and spirit when I meditate on my Father's love for me, no matter the challenge that wants to disturb me (Isaiah 26:3). His love gives me an overcomer's mentality, which dominates any thought contrary to what God says concerning me in His word.
Sometimes, circumstances around me try to discourage me but when I focus on God's love for me, I shake off the discouraging thoughts, hope comes alive in me and I remind myself that all things will work together for my own good (Romans 8:28).
Faith works through love (Galatians 5:6). The love of God strengthens my faith. When I remember that everything God wrote in His word is for my good because He loves me, I tend to believe and act on it. My faith comes alive as I understand the depth of God's love for me. It makes me to totally trust in God and in His word.
5. Love for God and for my neighbours
We are able to love God because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). He gave His only son Jesus for me! It is easier to love others when I compare the sacrifice I will make loving them with the sacrifice God made loving me. The love of God shed abroad in my heart (Romans 5:5) empowers me to love God and other people. I praise God for this grace to love Him and my fellowmen.
In conclusion, God's love for me is my greatest asset because it builds my Christian life and empowers me to please God and to be a blessing to my fellowmen. Glory to God!
