God tells us that without love nothing we do will ever matter.
Yet we cannot love well until we first understand how greatly we are loved by Him.
And as we rest secure in His love that will never leave us, we can begin the lifelong lesson of learning how to love God and others.
No easy task. Not for the faint of heart. Certainly not for the self-centered.
So after prayer and with purpose I’m taking this challenge…
Me and my Michael learning to love better.
You coming along, if you like.
And all of us learning to love like Jesus loves with hearts healing and relationships restoring.
For love and loved ones are far too precious to not want to practice love, making perfect.
With love flowing down from the Perfect One.
Love that cost Him everything.
And us, humbly spending ourselves in love so as to unwrap and enjoy this priceless gift of grace.
Love means God first and others before self.
Love means hard choices in difficult places.
Love means always saying you’re sorry.
And serving in love over and over again.
With love that goes the distance, no matter what.
For love never fails.
I’m calling this 31 day series First comes Love… We will explore God’s great love for us, how we must lay down our lives to love each other better, love in different seasons, love and addictions, love and marriage, love and loss, and many other topics.
