Our family plays a little game called, "I love you more." We try to be the first to say that we love each other, and then top each other by saying, "I love you more." Sometimes we win; sometimes we lose! However as much human love that we try to show to one another, our love can never come close to the love of God for us. Jesus always loves us MORE!
John 15:13 "Greater love has no man than this that a man would lay down his life for his friends."
The love of God has been said to be "rich, pure, measureless." One song writer wrote, "If that isn't love, then the ocean is dry..." To comprehend the love of God is often difficult. As humans it is difficult to imagine a relationship in which love is perfect. Sometimes it takes broken moments of our lives to realize God's love for us. When people turn their backs on us, offend, criticize, abuse and separate from us, we have to remember the love of God.
His love is unfailing.
Take moments this weekend to reflect on the ways that God has shown you He loves you. Read Romans 8:35 and realize that nothing can separate you from the love of Christ.
Thank God for His love, which is steadfast, and unfailing.
Ps. 13:5 "But I trust in your unfailing love."
