Agape Love: sacrificial commitment, dedicated to the well-being of another
Genuine Agape love doesn’t expect love in return. It is everlasting, unconditional, sacrificial and immeasurable.
Our heavenly Father not only cares for us, but He also cares for His creation! He blesses us with pets and all kinds of animals so that we may enjoy them and that they, in turn, may enjoy us!
People always ask, “Will my pet be in heaven?” The Bible doesn’t give any specific reference to this question, however, Isaiah 65:25 says, “The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, but dust will be the serpent’s food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,” says the LORD. (NIV)
God’s love is perfect and is everything it can possibly be. He loves you and He loves His creation.
“We know that in the Bible, ultimate redemption will extend to the whole of creation: i.e. Romans 8:21—‘that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God,’” said Dr. Dale Welden, senior pastor of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church. “I don’t know of a reason it would not extend to animals.” Another example is Luke 3:6, which says, “and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.” In the last book of the Bible, the Revelation, Christ says, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Randy Alcorn, author of Heaven, believes that this extends to animals. In the book, he writes, “Horses, cats, dogs, deer, dolphins, and squirrels—as well as the inanimate creation—will be beneficiaries of Christ’s death and resurrection.” It seems that God meant animals to be part of His world—now and in the age to come. There are many different theories, however…
Jesus said, “All things are possible to him who believes!” If you believe that, then get ready for the best animal reunion in Heaven!
Want to be a part of His Kingdom? Pray along with me!
Father, forgive me for being a sinner. I ask you to cleanse me and I ask Jesus to come into my heart and make me a new creation. Thank you Father for hearing me and loving me. Thank you for your creation and help me to love others the way you love me. Help me to always live for you, in Jesus’ Name I pray, amen.
