I like twoÂ statements found in today’s study. The first is found in the introduction: “When the Bible says God is love, it is saying more than that God loves, or that God is loving, or even that God is lovely; it is saying that love is the energy behind everything He does – love is not merely one of His attributes but is His whole nature. God is not only the Author of loving acts; He is love in the very core of His being. … And that love has its beginning, not in us, but in Himself. He is love’s source as well as its river.”
Many times in the New Testament we are reminded of the love of God – which is personal – His love is directed to each one of us – as an unique person. In Paul’s letter to the Galatians, we read in Chapter 2, verse 20; “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
The love of God for you is eternal – it will never be taken away by Him – only you can reject His love!
The prayer is rather special: “O God, what security it gives me toÂ know that Your love for me will never be diminished and never be taken away. Help me reflect on this and draw from it the inspiration I need to walk tall and strong through every day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
