Love Came Down to Man – The Divine Initiative!

In the beginning God created Adam and Eve and placed them in Eden where they enjoyed fellowship with Him and were in want of nothing. In Genesis 3, Adam and Eve disobeyed God and by their disobedience, they unwittingly unleashed upon the entire human race; the twin tidal waves of despair. Their eyes were suddenly blown open and they noticed that they were naked! [Genesis 3:7]

Then came the divine initiative.
Even as Adam experienced the early devastation of sin tearing through the core of his being, he heard the call of his Creator, as before, in the cool of the evening. He was calling out: “Adam, Where are you?” Adam may have convinced himself that God was done with him but he was wrong! God took the initiative in calling Adam to step up and out from the dark jungle of sin and embrace His unconditional love. The love of God was first expressed by the tender entreaty, “Adam, where are you?”  This was just the beginning! 

The call of God to Adam in the Garden of Eden was the first loving work by God in calling rebellious humanity to return to Him. This act has been repeated all through history as God the Creator has, with tender compassion, earnestly entreated His human family to return to Him. As mankind has progressed further out into the darkness, God has moved in ever-widening circles to encompass him with His boundless love. No one account could contain the myriad ways in which God has moved to protect man from the fatal results of his sin and to call him back to Himself.

The entire Old Testament records a history of a loving Creator, working to induce an immature and rebellious humanity to return to Him. The work of atonement in the New Testament is equally God’s plan to rescue fallen humanity and restore us to our rightful place in His plan and purpose. This simply demonstrates the mystery of God’s love.

Now the question is: Have you made any move to respond to this divine initiative? Will you let the sacrifice of Jesus Christ go in vain?

This is a moment of sober reflection which should initiate a choice by you, to accept Jesus Christ as LORD and savior.  
God BLESS you!

Rom 8:1-2:
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Romans 5:12: “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.”

Romans 3:23: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God..

Romans 5:8-9 *But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

2 Peter 3:9 (KJV)
9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

John 3:18: “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
