God Loves People

““Whoever sheds human blood, by other humans must his blood be shed; for in God’s image God has made humankind.” But as for you, be fruitful and multiply; increase abundantly on the earth and multiply on it.”” Genesis 9:6-7 NET https://bible.com/bible/107/gen.9.6-7.NET


God loves people. Everywhere the Scripture declares God’s love for people. He made humanity in His image, positioning Himself as the Father of all, declaring all people sons and daughters in the broadest possible sense. We reject God in our words and deeds. Denying His existence, we deny His ways, doing things God despises, especially the murder of one another. When God lived among us as one of us, He identified Himself as Life. He is the author and sustainer of all life. Everything in the universe exists by His will and remains according to His will. The ultimate defiance against God perpetrated by humanity is the murder of others who were created by God to know God and live forever with God should they be reconciled to God through Jesus the Savior. Abortion is the worst form of murder. The greatest injustice we perpetrate against one another is the murder of the most innocent of all, the unborn child. What is legal by men is not always moral before God. God will judge, punish, or reward all humanity based upon their relationship with Him, made evident by our worship and obedience to Him. God wants people. God loves people. God declared the marriage relationship between a man and a woman to be the context for bringing people into the world, for that relationship is the healthiest environment for raising children in the way they are to go, which is in obedience to everything Jesus has commanded. Those who love God, who have surrendered to Jesus as Lord and Savior, must be advocates for life both in sustaining those living and bringing about others to live with God forever.
