Message 2, Love Creates:
In writing his first epistle to Timothy, Paul relied heavily on his understanding of God’s love. Echoing Christ’s teaching that the greatest commandment is love, he exhorted Timothy to focus on ‘love from a pure heart a good conscience and a sincere faith’ as the goal of his instruction.
Man can hope to reach this goal only through the God who is love. Before the foundation of the world, God determined to create man in His own image, and to enter a loving relationship with him. Despite man’s rejection of God and His love, God remained faithful to His purpose and promise, even to the point of sending His Son to the Cross. By this supreme act of love, God redeemed His people, freeing and enabling them to love Him in return.
