God’s Love Story – Part 2

This is the second part of our series leading up to Easter. We’re discovering, savoring, and celebrating God’s incredible love story for us! If you haven’t read Part 1, just check out the previous post! And each part of this series includes a short and sweet workout. Here’s a 15-min lower body video to get you moving and burning bright!

While GOD IS LOVE and each person of the Trinity is love, each has a unique role in His love story. (check out God’s Love Story – Part 1 for more)

  • God the Father authors the love story.
  • God the Son accomplishes the love story.
  • God the Spirit applies the love story.

(These helpful statements are taken from Tara Leigh Coble’s Trinity study.)

We were created by and for this ultimate love!

  • We were created to be called lovely by God the Father as children of God.
  • We were created for a love story as the bride of Christ.
  • We were created for help and community in relationship with God the Spirit and with His believers.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God ; believe also in me.My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”

John 14:1-4 NIV

So whether you just want to know you’re Daddy’s Girl or desire to be pursued like a beautiful bride or just need a personal friend and deep relationship, GOD IS LOVE! Just as a father should protect and provide security for His child, God the Father is authoring good and desiring a secure future for you. Just as centuries ago when the groom prepared a room for his bride in his father’s house, God the Son is preparing a room for you. (See John 14:1-4) And just as a dear friend knows how to help and what to say, God the Spirit is near and engaged and care for you.

Yet GOD IS EVEN BETTER than any earthly father, groom, or friend! Even better than what we can ask, think, or imagine! We’re talking about a love story that encompasses all we need or could ever want! Let’s celebrate and move and rest in this powerful truth!

So I kneel humbly in awe before the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the perfect Father of every father and child in heaven and on the earth. And I pray that he would unveil within you the unlimited riches of his glory and favor until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with his divine might and explosive power.

Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life.

Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences—the great magnitude  of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is his love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding—this extravagant love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God!

Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination!  He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.

Now we offer up to God all the glorious praise that rises from every church in every generation through Jesus Christ—and all that will yet be manifest through time and eternity. Amen!
