We love Him because He first loved us.
Do you understand what this means? While we did not love God, He loved us. While we did not look for God, He looked for us. The love of God is an active and seeking kind of love. His love is looking for ways to express itself toward us. When He paints a beautiful sunset, He is expressing His love toward us. When He speaks through the pages of His Word, that is His love toward us. When He was dying on the cross, He was proclaiming to a lost and dying world that He had a very real and undying love for us. For God so Loved the world… it doesn’t get any better than this.
Life Lesson: God loves us.
Thank You for the beauty of Your creation and the way You express Your love for me through it. Thank You for searching for me. Thank You for finding me and thank You for speaking to me. Thank You for saving me. I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
