It is to this we have given ourselves

Peace, one and all…

From love we originate,
for love we were created.
That is what we aim for
and it is to this we have given ourselves

(Ibn Arabi, God sanctify his noble soul)

10 thoughts on “It is to this we have given ourselves

  1. 1 John 4:8
    8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love

    We are God’s creation and are here to glorify His holy loving name.
    As we sumit our will to His will He will emower us to be more loving.

    Rich blessings to you Abdur, your wife and your family.

  2. As we submit our will to His holy will He will inspire and empower us to be more loving and compassionate in both word and deed.

  3. May the God of love richly bless Abdur and his family and all readers keen to honour His name!

    Love suffereth long, and is kind; Love envieth not; Love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

    Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

    Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

    Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

    Love never faileth.

    Because God is love we can also write:

    God suffereth long, and is kind; God envieth not; God vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
    Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

    Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

    Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
    God never faileth.

    Truly this is a most wonderful description of the God of love!

  4. Although we are often very stubborn and disobedient God is very long suffering toward us. Yes, He is a very, very kind and patient teacher,

    As He grows us up spiritually, we find out that we will envy our neigbour less and less.

    As He graciously cleanses our heart, mind and soul, we find out that we will reject more and more vaunting ourselves and behaving puffed up (boastfully).

    Our Holy God never behaves unseemly or selfishly and He is the only person in existence who is like this!

    God can be provoked but is not easily provoked.

    Truly, the more He loves us, the more we have the opportunity to become conformed to His holy image.

    This means that the more God loves us and the more we respond obediently to His love, we will become more self controlled, humble and less easily provoked,

    God is so holy and pure that He thinks no evil and never speaks or behaves selfishly!

    Wonderfully when sin or injustice is committed God never rejoices.

    As He purifies us, His creation, we miraculously become more like Him in these areas too.

    Yes, Abdur and precious friends, we have much to be thankful for, for God’s love is healing, forgiving and character transforming.

    It is to God that we ought to offer ourself willingly and joyfully body, soul and spirit.

    To God be the glory!

  5. From love we originate,
    for love we were created.
    That is what we aim for
    and it is to this we have given ourselves.

    This quotation is very interesting!

    Because God is love, it can be rewitten.

    From God we originate,
    for God we were created.

    and it is to Him that we ought to give ourselves sacrificially and lovingly – in doing so we glorify God.

    Precious readers, never hesitate to get to know God, for His heart rejoices always in justice and truth. truly God never vaunts Himself or behaves unseemly!

    Let’s rejoice greatly, for the God of creation is sinless and the more we pursue purity the more He will reveal Himself to us.

    May God bless you, Abdur and friends, as you venture forth boldly to live more selflessly.

  6. May the holy, healing, heart-cleansing God of history and eternity bless Abdur, his treasured wife and his lively, fast-growing children with renewed energy and vigor, so that 2011 will be a year of outstanding achievements in all areas of their lives.

    Abdur, your very kind words are much appreciated!
