Have you noticed the politically correct slogan, “Love wins”…?
Oops. Supporters of that half truth forgot to do their homework. The expression is only partially true due to misapplication.
What is love?
Love is the Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29, John 15:13). Love accomplished His appointed work the moment He took His last breath (John 19:30).
Love won. Past tense.
Looking back at Calvary, we see that Love already won (John 15:13, 1 John 4:8) in and through the crucifixion. It is finished (John 19:30).
All that’s left to win now… is Truth (John 14:6, Matt. 5:18). Scripture tells us that in the end, truth wins!
Matthew 5:18 states, “For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.”
God had the first word and, no doubt, will have the last.
Instead of a half-baked slogan, the Biblical version declares,
“Truth wins (Matt. 5:18).”
John 19:30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
John 1:29 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
1 John 4:8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:16b And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Matthew 5:18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
