(Jesus Christ's Love Is So Amazing and no love in this world can compare with it.)

The word "Love" is on the air, people are talking about it, especially in this month of February people exchange their love in different forms. But here is an amazing love which no human being can exchange or express. That is Christ's love. It is so amazing. He is an amazing lover of all lovers.

Dear friends,

February month's specialty is really amazing that all around everyone talk about love, love, and love. Its expression is coming in different form and methods.

Yes no doubt it's really lovely and wonderful thing to experience the love of the dear ones especially on this occasion.

But my dear friends, at this wonderful moment I have few questions to all of you. Just a moment.

Have you ever thought about what exactly life is all about? Did you ever thought about what is the purpose of your being on this earth? What for I am here? Or what is the purpose of my life? What exactly I want to do on this earth? Have you ever thought of such questions?

If the answer is either, Yes or No, don't worry. You can find these questions answers in the Living Word, The Bible, the wonderful loving Words to the humanity.

The Bible says, "God Is Love!" (John 4:8) - And that He loves you! He is your loving Heavenly Father who made this whole universe for you to live in. He made you with a wonderful nature and body. God is not only love but is a spirit too. (I John 4:24). He is great and His love is unfathomable which no one on earth can explain. People like you and me can't understand its deepness. "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" John 3:16.

Only because of His greatest love, He send His only son (Jesus Christ) to this earth for us. Jesus Christ is the replica of the Heavenly Father to show us what God is like. Jesus Christ born to a humble lady called Mary.

From the beginning He talked about love. He not only preached but also practiced or showed His love to others. He lived in love all the time and finally He gave His life for us on the cross of Calvary to save us from the wretched sinful condition.

Yes, we are all sinners we need a savior and we need to be forgiven.

The Bible says... without forgiveness for our sins we will be separated from God's perfect love (Romans 3:23; 6:23).

Yes, because of our sinful nature we all deserved punishment. Our destination was hell fire. But God loved us so much that He sent His only son Jesus Christ for the remission of our sins. He promised to forgive our sins, if we would believe in Jesus and accept Him as your savior.

Jesus wants to come and live with you. He wants to be your best and loving friend and savior. He says, "I stand at the door (of your heart) and knock; if you hear my voice and open the door I will come into you. (Revelation 3:20)

To obtain this wonderful love and salvation of Jesus Christ, all you need to do is accept Him as your Lord and Savior, for this only one thing you have to do, that is "confess with your mouth that, I am a sinner, I am not a righteous person, and I accept you as my Lord and Savior in my life."

Salvation through Jesus Christ is a gift of God. There is nothing more you need to do to obtain it. You need not work for it. It's absolutely free on asking. Confess your sins before Him and accept Him as your Lord and Savior. The Bible says, "By Grace (God's Love) we are saved through faith not of ourselves or by our own good deeds. It's the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8, 9)

Christ's love is so amazing. He is an amazing lover of all lovers.

Friend, if you are not yet received Jesus Christ into your heart; this is the best time to receive Him. Right now you can receive Him, just pray this little prayer with me:

"Dear Jesus, I am a sinner and I believe that you are the Son of God, you died on the cross of Calvary for my sake. Please forgive me for all my sins. I now invite you to my heart, I accept you as my personal Savior and Lord. I humbly say this prayer in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ's name. Amen. May God Bless You. Love.

Jesus Christ not only saves you but also He keeps you saved. As we have seen in the previous content, 'the salvation through Jesus Christ is the gift of God.' We read in Romans chapter 6:23 that "The gift of God is eternal life." And ones you have received it, it's for ever, you can't lose it. If you could; it would not be eternal. If one fall and make mistakes, Jesus promised, "whoever has come to me I'll never cast them away (John 6:37). If you are disobedient He may punish you, but he will never forsake you. He said, I'll never leave you nor forsake you (Heb. 13:5).

When you open your heart for Jesus and he comes in, everything become new, a great change takes place in your life. You become like a new born babe. Jesus said "...no one can see kingdom of God unless he is born again. John 3:3. Your old nature will go and a new nature will take shape. 2 Corinthians 5:17 say...If any one is in Christ he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! From that point of life everything starts afresh. You need to know more and learn more. Like a babe a new believer need fresh milk (Word of God) to grow. In first Peter 2:2 we read "like a newborn babies, crave for pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation.

You need to read and study the Word of God that leads you to perfection and spiritual maturity. Psalm 119:105 says, "Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path, Word of God as the living light to your path. It will guide you with all needed instructions for your daily life. It's the spiritual food for your soul and you need to take this daily in a systematic way to grow spiritually.

In the New Testament the four gospels gives an account of Lord Jesus Christ's earthly life. Start reading Johns gospel. It gives an account of Jesus Christ's loving words; it's very easy to understand. From these passages you get a clear cut understanding about God's plan for you.

When you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior you are filled with Holy Spirit. This Holy Spirit will guide you and help you in your daily life. Holy Spirit also helps you to witness for Him to the ends of the world. (Book of Acts 1:8). Holy Spirit is a comforter, who like a loving mother stays close over the newborn child of God.

A born again Christian, need to have constant contact with his Savior. How can this be possible? It's only possible through prayer. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you, for everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks the door will be opened. Luke 11:9-10. The prayer will come naturally to a child of God like a new born babe craves for milk to his mother.

Prayer is the link between the greatest lover of all, the Heavenly Father and His children. God's children can contact Him at any time without any restriction of time or place. He is reachable and very close to the one who seek for him. Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you (James 4:8).

'Agape' Love, the Real Love

The world over the lovers just celebrated the wonderful and excited day February 14 with much pomp and pleasure.

Unfortunately the word "Love" today is a much misunderstood word. Many are carried away with this wonderful word. Some are very sweetly cheated and got cheated by this word. It looks like in today's world this magnificent word became like a piece of elastic. It is pulled and stretched towards all directions. Sad to say, that it merely turns to a subject deals with two individuals intimate relationship like kissing hugging etc. on TV screens and film screens. This type of showing intimacy towards each other is misunderstood or termed as 'Love'. Ultimately the real meaning is terribly missing somewhere on the way. In short the word 'love' is misused miserably.

In continuation to my previous content "An Amazing Lover of All Lovers" let me pen down few more things about that greatest and amazing love, the love of God and His Son Lord Jesus Christ.

There are three kinds of love mentioned in the Bible.

Eros: This Greek word had been so widely refers to physical or sexual love. Our present-day word "erotic," meaning the arousing of sexual love or desire, comes from the word eros. It simply means 'lust' this word does not appear in the Greek New Testament, however.

Phileo: This word refers to an emotional type of love which comes out of rapport or compatibility with, or affection for, someone or something. There is a personal attachment suggested. It is used a number of times in the New Testament. Some of the variations are:

Philadelphia, including brotherly love or fraternal affection. Hebrew 13:1 uses it: "Let brotherly love continue." This word is familiar to North Americans because William Penn used it to name his city for religious freedom, now one of the largest cities in the United States. In fact, the motto for the city of Philadelphia is the text from Hebrews 13:1.

Philadelphos, indicating fondness of brethren see I Pet. 3:8).

Philanthropia, suggesting benevolence (see Titus 3:4)

Philandros, implying affectionate emotions (see Titus 2:4)

Philoteknos, showing fondness for one's children (see Titus 2:4)

Agape refers to the real love or the greatest kind of love. It has to do with the love which God has and the love which believers should have. It involves not only emotions but also the will. God's love towards us to send His only son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for us- this is the 'agape' love. Or in other words loving the unattractive and undeserving one and it means reconciliation with old enemies and accepting them with an open heart. This love is far greater than the modern love. This love represents to be committed and caring for the other person whatever or whichever situation he may be. The Christians should show this love to his fellow brethren. This is what the difference other found in Christian faith.

Phileo is based on a mutual response, agape loves even when there is no response to it. Only a God-given love is capable of that.

There are five types of agape:

1. Love of God the Father for the Son (see John 15:9).

2. Love of God for the human race (see John 3:16).

3. Love of God for the believer (see I John 4:19).

4. Love of the believer for God (see Rom. 8:28; I John 4:19).

Let us embrace this great lover and his love so that through our lives we can reflect the world the same love.

Dear Friend,

You may not even know Jesus, But, Jesus Loves You. His Love Is So Amazing. Accept It And Be Blessed.

May God help.

Thank you for your time.

God Bless.
