Commanded to Love

My love for you is so vast and lavish that I have given you the command to love Me.  I command you to love only Me.  I looked down from My high and exalted throne and saw you in your depravity and sin; blind, deaf, and lame, and wallowing about in darkness.  I had compassion on you knowing that you did not, in your own capacity, even know that it was Me you needed.  I reached down from on High and drew you up into My arms.  I washed you, put clean clothes on you and cradled you in the arms of Love.  My arms.  God is love.  God is Father.  You have been adopted into My family.  You were orphaned and under the command of a strict and abusive Father who beat you and used you.  I came and set you free.  I gave you the command to love Me, not out of harshness or ego or pride, but out of a vast wealth of  ‘jealous for you’ love, because I knew that in your human nature you would not even know to love Me unless I had shown you.  I have given you everything you need;  love, salvation, belonging, forgiveness.   With the cross now firmly fixed in your mind honor Me.  Honor My commands.  I, Jesus,  first loved you.  I showed you My love on the cross.  My actions reveal My love.  Love Me.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
