Grace Supplies Because Love Is Always Giving

God is1 John 4-8

My friend, it’s not hard to understand how the grace of God is always supplying when you know that the essence of God Himself is love and that LOVE GIVES. The Bible says in two places that “God is love”. (1 John 4:8, 16) Interestingly, the Hebrew word for “love” is made up of three Hebrew letters: Aleph, Hey and Bet (note that Hebrew reads from right to left).

In other words, put Hey (grace) back in the center of the word for “father” and you get back the word for “love”. Can you see it? In the midst of your Father’s heart is love. The Father is all about love!

Now, what does love do? John 3:16 tells us “For God so loved the world that He GAVE His only begotten Son…” Love gives! Love doesn’t take. Love gives! In fact, love gives more than you can take! So God, who is defined as love, and who personifies perfect love, is always giving, and giving, and giving, and giving, and giving, and giving – forever!

It says in Hebrews 7:25, “Therefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever lives to make intercession for them.” Our Savior’s gift of love is so complete that Our Savior and High Priest is alive forever providing the means of our forgiveness and right standing before the Father.

If you read the Gospels, you’ll find that during His earthly ministry, God the Son was always giving. Jesus meant every word He said when He said, “…the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28) Even in His glorified, resurrected form in heaven, He remains a servant forever, signified by the golden girdle around His waist. (Revelation 1:13) Yes, He is Lord of lords, King of kings, but according to His Word, He is also a servant who delights in serving and giving to you!
