He wanted us to experience a relationship with him, happiness and love. When Jesus died on the cross, we were given victory from sin. So we can still get to enjoy life through a close walk with God.

- "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." (1 Corinthians 13:13) No matter how anointed we are in our preaching, teaching, evangelizing, ministering, etc ... there is no greater evidence of our knowledge of God than how we LOVE one another.

- Love From the beginning of time to the present day, the definition of love is debated and discussed by the greatest scholars of every generation. Created with shaping the world as we know it, love is well known to have given the human race unknown joy alongside indescribable death and destruction across the geographical landscape. As I further researched the meaning, I came to realize that isolating love into a small realm is nearly impossible for even the most intelligent of authors.

- God Gives Life and He Can Take it Away I neither agree nor disagree with this statement, for I believe that it has relevance in only certain circumstances.

There are many passages in the Bible that say this, like in Genesis 1: 27, 28 andGenesis 2: 7: "So god created man in his own image, in the image of god he created him; male and female he created them....
