Hard Love

We have been in a series called “Stories of Overcomers” since the last Sunday in February. The stories have varied from a young girl healed of cancer to a lady delivered from the demonic to a man who was told he was done when God said he had just begun. We still have a few more weeks in the series, but I see a recurring theme – the hard love of God.

You may not think of God’s Love as hard, but His love can be pretty tough. If you have ever disobeyed Him or tried to run the other way, then you know what I’m talking about. You have experienced His discipline and lived to tell about it. The world makes the love of God look weak and anemic. The true biblical love of God can be a hard love, but it builds our character. Let me leave you with one of my favorite songs.

  1. Good post, Matthew. I remember once lamenting an especially trying time with a popular saying,”I am not a saint.” Somebody pointed out that actually, God is in the saint making business.
