We love Him because He first loved us….

Standard

So, anyone who knows me very well, knows I am interested in anything that has to do with Christ’s return and our future home in Heaven.  I am ready to go be with Him at any moment, and yes, most of the time when there is a catastrophic event or if the sun suddenly breaks through a hole in the clouds, I think that it surely must be Him coming to take His children home….

However, sometimes I lament that He isn’t here yet, and I beg for Him to hurry back, and I occasionally wonder if He ever will.  Then, I also have times that I feel guilty for wanting His return to happen so badly when there are so many who don’t yet follow Him and wouldn’t be taken to be with Him.  I know that the Father is waiting for a reason and that His plan is perfect….He desires all who will to accept His Son into their hearts….He gives us so many chances……but also, He’s been planning this for a very long time, as human time goes, and His ways are not our ways.

In the Old Testament, Father God promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations and that a Deliverer for all men would come from his descendants.  It took thousands of years for the Promised Deliverer to be born, but God had a plan then, and had His timing then….so, I know He has His plan and timing now, for the Second Coming.  My impatience is just because of the longing for Him and for my True Home, which was placed in me, and in you, from our beginnings.  Toby Mac says it best in his song, Made to Love:

The dream is fading, now I’m staring at the door
I know it’s over ’cause my feet have hit the cold floor
Check my reflection, I ain’t feelin’ what I see
It’s no mystery

Whatever happened to a passion I could live for?
What became of the flame that made me feel more
And when did I forget

That I was made to love you, I was made to find you
I was made just for you, made to adore you
I was made to love and be loved by you?

You were here before me, you were waiting on me
And you said you’d keep me, never would you leave me
I was made to love and be loved by you
(And be loved by you)

The dream’s alive with my eyes opened wide
Back in the ring, you’ve got me swinging for the grand prize
I feel the hate is spittin’ vapors on my dreams
But I still believe

I’m reachin’ out, reachin’ up, reachin’ over
I feel a breeze cover me called Jehovah
And daddy, I’m on my way
‘Cause I was made to love

I was made to love you, I was made to find you
I was made just for you, made to adore you
I was made to love and be loved by you

You were here before me, you were waiting on me
And you said you’d keep me, never would you leave me
I was made to love and be loved by you
(I was made to love and be loved by you)

I was made to love you
I was made just for you, made to adore you
I was made to love and be loved by you
(I was made to love and be loved by you)

You were here before me, you were waiting on me
And you said you’d keep me, never would you leave me
I was made to love and be loved by you
(I was made to love and be loved by you)

Anything, I would give up for you
Everything, I’d give it all away
Anything, I would give up for you
Everything, I’d give it all away
Anything, I would give up for you
Everything, I’d give it, I’d give it all away, oh yeah

‘Cause I was made to love you
(I was made to love you)
Yeah, I was made to love you
(I was made to find you)

‘Cause I was made to love you
(I was made to adore you, made just for you)
I was made to love you
(I was made to adore you, made just for you)

‘Cause I was made to love you
(I was made to adore you, made just for you)
I was made to love you
(I was made to adore you, yeah, I’ve been loved by you)
(Yeah, I’ve been loved by you, yeah, I’ve been loved by you)
