“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”. – Romans 5:8
LIGHT FOR NOW: Jesus is God’s love in the flesh.
Jesus is God’s unflinching, unfailing and unconditional love manifested. His words, actions and miracles were all love-inspired. Jesus is God’s love in the flesh. Love is the totality of His personality. He couldn’t choose whether to love us or not to love us. He could only love us. In this season of love, you must ponder on Jesus as the revelation of God’s love for you. Think how much He loves you, to have given Himself as a ransom for your sins. He said in John 15:13 (NKJV), “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends”. Christ did exactly that for us. He died for our sins.
We must therefore make his love our heart-felt contemplation; stay and be at rest, in His unrivalled and unconditional love for us. To comprehend this truth is to awaken in you, your value and you will never be discouraged, despondent, fearful, intimidated nor ashamed irrespective of the challenges of life. Your consciousness of His love for you will make you a success and a victor for life. “Behold what matter of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God…”. As a son of God, you have the boldness to ask and receive whatever you need in life. God is not angry with you. You have been accepted in the beloved.
INSTRUCTION: Be ever conscious of the love of God for you.
Prayer: Father, I thank you for loving me this much, and I’m ever conscious of your love for me even as I express same to my world, in Jesus Name!
QUOTE: God’s love is revealed in Christ.
