A trademark tells us some important things:
The Number 1 Trademark is Love.
God's Trademark is Love
God is love.
God is the source of love.
God made you in His very image...that makes you very valuable.
Genesis 5:1 ESV This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God.
Regardless of what you may have been told or even believed, you are not an accident or a mistake.
Psalm 139:15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. God wanted you to be born. He made you to connect with His love.
God loves you.
16I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being,
17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,
18may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,
19and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Deuteronomy 5:10 ESV
But I lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love me and obey my commands.
Receive His love.
God will not force His love on you. He will not violate your will. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God-- John 1:12 NIV
Receiving His love is an ongoing process.
You will NEVER stop needing to know who you are in Christ.
You will NEVER stop needing to know who God is in you.
These truths are life giving.
God's love marks you.
His love marks you like the trademark on the back of my dishes.
Jesus said in John 15:35 "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."
That's why worship, deep heartfelt worship, is so important.
Worship takes us into the presence of God where we can feel His love and
experience that love at a new level.
Knowing, really knowing, God's love produces a confidence that enables us to live loved, being who we were really meant by God to be. We can become who God meant us to be.
9“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.
10If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.
11I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.
12My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
13Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
14You are my friends if you do what I command.
15I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
16You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
17This is my command: Love each other.
You cannot give away something that you don't have.
