THE OBJECT OF GOD'S LOVE
///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 326| November 21, 2020 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth
Genesis 1:16-17 (KJV)
From the very beginning of the world as we know it, man has greatly been loved by God and our opening verse attest to that. 'For God so loved the World' declared by the Lord Jesus in John 3:16 was not the first expression of God's love to man it only happens to be the deepest yet the highest love God has manifested toward man. God has been loving man in unusual ways prior to the coming of the lord Jesus Christ.
A study on the solar system reveals how important man is to God. The earth looks so big, it takes hours to move from one place to the other but according to science, one million spheres of the earth can fit into the sun if it were hollow. Yet even the sun is small compared to some stars. Some stars are so large that 500 million spheres the size of the sun could fit inside them if they were hollow.
The star Betelgeuse, is one of the brightest stars of the orion belt. It's diameter is 500 million kilometres- which means that if it were hollow, the earth could comfortably revolve around the sun, inside this star, in its normal orbit! (The earth's orbit around the sun being only 300 kilometres in diameter). Now, think of this. From our opening verse, we know God made the sun, the moon and the stars because of the earth and the earth because of man, meaning man has an unquestionable place with God. He made all these great structures in space just to light man on earth, what a way to care for a person.
John 3:16 was and still is the biggest demonstration of God's love towards man. Beyond the vastness of the solar system is the son of God who was given for the salvation of man. Jesus was God’s best yet was not spared for our sake. The way God loves man is unimaginable, no wonder Apostle John says we love him because He first loved us. Let no one say to you that God doesn't want you, let no one say to you that God doesn't care about you. Irrespective of how far you've gone from Him, His heart is all out for you. Know that you are and will always be the object of God’s amazing Love!

I am deeply loved and favoured by God. I am bold in life because of the love of God towards me. Nothing in this world can separate me from the love my God has for me.
