Reciprocal Love

00:00

Description

Are you in a reciprocal relationship with God? This parable illustrates the nature of a reciprocal love relationship.

The Trinity is in a reciprocal love relationship. The Father is always responding to his Son while the Son is always responding to the love of God the Father. We as believers love God because he first loved us. Our love relationship to God does not start with what we have done for him, but with what he's done for us. What he has done for us he has sent his son to die on our behalf and his Son has counted us more important than himself. So we can see this kind of reciprocal love relationship working out in the parable of Luke 12.

37 "Blessed are those slaves whom the master shall find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself to serve, and have them recline at the table, and will come up and wait on them.

 38 "Whether he comes in the second watch, or even in the third, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves.

 39 "And be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into.

 40 "You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect." (Luke 12:37-40)

The servants are waiting to serve their master; however, when the master arrived he served them. They did what he wanted them to do so as a result he became a servant to them. That illustrates the nature of a reciprocal love relationship. It shows the truth that God truly appreciates what believers do for him and his Son. Are you in a reciprocal relationship with God?
