Love Can NEVER be Forced.

We can’t force anyone to love us. They must choose to do so.

Likewise, God cannot force anyone to love Him. They must choose to do so.

This is why God’s government can never be based on force. It is based on love and love can never be forced.

God, desiring to have creatures who love Him, made them free. But making them free meant that is carried the risk that His creatures would choose NOT to love Him.

And the record of this world is clear- the vast majority of people have chosen  it to follow God. But, even though most choose not to love Him, it has never and will never change His response to them. His response is always love, whether we choose to respond to love or not.

Christ, becoming a baby, living our life and then dying our death is the clearest demonstration of the love of God. He came to a world where He was to leave all the glories of heaven to become of the lowest of low. He was born, not in the comfort of a home, but among animals in a stable. He was ridiculed as being a bastard, he was slandered, his character maligned. He was hated and rejected and yet His love for us still lead Him to the cross to die for all of us, whether we chose to love Him or not.

Indeed God so loves the world! (John 3:16)

God is love. (1 John 4:8)

Love does not force (Zechariah 4:6, Romans 5:5)
