As Christians, we have become a community of believers focused on our needs and what God can do for us; were convinced were in good standing with the Lord. The concept of Gods love is woefully misrepresented throughout the corporate church, and weve effectively altered Gods character and diminished his holiness and sovereignty. As a result, weve become complacent about others salvation.
In The Reality of Gods Love, author Carol Sparks explores our beliefs about godly love by examining the spiritual truth in scripture. A small study packed with thought-provoking insights, it challenges some of the long-standing concepts held by the Christian church about Gods love, and it addresses the validity of some of our beliefs. Sparks discusses how the many misconceptions about the subject have altered the gospel message and diminished the effectiveness of the church.
Deeply spiritual, The Reality of Gods Love shares scriptures as well Sparks personal observations related to godly love, which is at the core of faith. It serves to give Christians a greater appreciation for Gods holiness and sovereignty and a renewed desire to bring the lost to Christ.
