Relationship with God by Joyce Meyer

Ginger: that’s true. Sometimes we have to make tough choices. You’ve talked about the cycle of love.  Tell us about that.

Joyce Meyer: in the amplified bible in particular, over in first john it talks about completing the cycle of love. I think that’s extremely interesting because when Jesus was talking to one man who asked him, “what is the most important commandment?” he said, “you shall love the lord your god with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.  The second is like it, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.” then over in 1 peter 3 it talks about having peace with god, peace with yourself and peace with your fellowman. So, really the bible is a book about relationships. Joyce Meyer Online mentioned that  it’s about my relationship with god, my relationship with myself, my relationship with people. I’ve come to understand that I can’t give away something I don’t have, so I have to receive the love of god. That’s the initial thing in my relationship with god. When I receive Christ as my savior, the bible says that the love of god is shed abroad in our heart by the holy ghost. That’s in Romans, chapter 5. So right away god floods us with his love but if you don’t receive it by faith, to you it’s as if you don’t even have it. We have to understand that what we don’t put our faith in, even though we have it legally, we don’t have it experientially because I’m forgiven but if I still want to go around feeling guilty all the time, then I’m not experiencing my forgiveness. I may have it legally but I don’t have it experientially. So we can say, “I know god loves me,” but do you really know god loves you?

Joyce Meyer Ministries – That’s the healing power that we need for our souls, that god loves us, he loves us unconditionally, his love is not based on what we do or don’t do; god just loves me. And that’s really hard for us to get through our head. Ginger:  right.  Because that love is there, it’s real, but accepting it and activating it in our life is our choice.
