What a Rush!
God is love. 1 John 4:8
Levi Bliss, 23, found a scenic location and arranged to have the words “MARRY ME” displayed on the side of a large hill. Taking his girlfriend on a drive, he paused where she could see the letters. Just as he knelt to propose, the girl’s father, knowing of the plan, stepped out with a large sign with the words: “SAY NO!”
It was a joke, and the fiancée said “Yes.” But it’s a reminder to us of the devil’s ploy. The Gospel is God’s proposal to us, His expression of love. Satan is always standing nearby telling us to “SAY NO!”
D. L. Moody said, “It would not take twenty-four hours to make the world come to God, if you can only make them believe God is love. If you can really make a man believe you love him, you have won him; and if I could only make people really believe that God loves them, what a rush we would see for the kingdom of God!”
God loves you; it’s His nature to love—and that’s a proposal that deserves full acceptance.
If I thought I could only make the world believe that God is love, I would only take that text and go up and down the earth, trying to counteract what Satan has been telling them. D. L. Moody
