Real love // 18-04-19

“God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.” 1 John‬ ‭4:9-11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

It all starts and ends with love! We were created to be loved, to know love and to show love. That is our primary purpose for being and without love, life is just empty noise! Lord, I’ll never truly get why You love me so much, but I am so grateful that You do. Thank You for the price You were willing to pay that I might be forgiven and experience the transforming power of Your love. Help me to grow in that love and teach me how to love more like You.

Amen ✞= ♥
