Does God love one person more than another or does He loves us all equally? Here is a chat I had with a friend this morning and I’m too positive it’s gonna be helpful. It will be worth every second spent on it.
Rotimi: Happy New month sir.
Pls i need ur help on this subject and i’m quite confused
Rotimi: Does God love one person more than the other?
Tee Abraham: Same to u bro
Rotimi: Thanks sir
Tee Abraham: In my understanding.
On a level God loves us all the same…the bible says while we were yet sinners God sent His son to die for us all
So he loved d whole world enuf, and I guess d same to give His son to all
Tee Abraham: Now going into specifics, I just think some pple have been able to work der way into d heart of God by responding more to his love than some oda persons.
A good illustration is our parents, as much as dey love us all d same, dey kinda have preference in btwn siblings bcos sm av bn able to distinct demselves in a way or d oda, maybe by doing things dey like, but dt dsnt mean dt if d oda siblings do d same, dey’ll move up to dt same level of love
Rotimi: My point exactly but what about the jacob and esau part about jacob i love esau i hate
Tee Abraham: Ok
Lemme first explain smthn
Rotimi: I’m here sir
Tee Abraham: We can’t explain God’s choices and decision based on our morality
God is not subject to human morality
Tee Abraham: U knw, questns like if “God is good why does He allow evil” is we human trying to subject God to our morality.
Dt is beyond our scope, God created good and evil
Tee Abraham: God is sovereign
We can’t questn his choices. Cos it’s beyond our scope, we can never understand it
Rotimi: Yes very true
Tee Abraham: So, who says loving Jacob and hating Esau is bad like we think?
Tee Abraham: Remember dt time God was setting up a new nation, his own pple, and he chose one man Abraham from the entire world, for no reason, dt’s grace. Abraham wasn’t holy b4 den, then isaac, then, He chose Jacob instead of Esau
Tee Abraham: He is God, He has d ryt to do it, He created them both. We don’t av d ryt to questn Him
Tee Abraham: Yeah
Rotimi: Yesssso we don’t
Tee Abraham: So does God love one person more than others? At least He has made equal grace available to us all and the bible says His love for each and evry one of us is “everlasting”, and nothing can separate us from His love, so does it matter?
Rotimi: I’d say no cos the greatest gift of all JESUS “the gift of salvation” has not been held from us.
Rotimi: Honestly it doesn’t matter all i know is i can’t comprehend God’s love for me
Tee Abraham: Exactly
Rotimi: Thank You very much sir
Tee Abraham: It’s my pleasure bro
Rotimi: You’ve been amazingly helpful yet again
Tee Abraham: Bless God
I might have not answered the question of God loving one man than another, but does it really matter? The love He has for you CAN NEVER BE EXHAUSTED if you draw from it every second.
Do you think God hates you? Maybe because He didn’t answer your prayer not to let your mum die from the terminal disease or because He gave your ungodly neighbour more blessings than He gave the faithful you?
What can be compared to the gift of eternal life in the new heaven and new earth where it’s pure joy, no death, sickness or corruption? Street of gold and eternally beholding the glory of God. A city whose builder and ruler is God, with death defeated and Satan locked up eternally in the bottomless pit.
All those inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you was gotten for you through the resurrection of Jesus.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life”
