THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
World over, the month of February is known as the month of Love. A month where people take time out to celebrate their loved ones. Expensive gifts, flowers, dinners and all the works. As I can imagine, many of us may be planning lovely gestures for the ones we love. Such a beautiful season.
I believe it’s also a time for us to reflect on the greatest love anyone could ever wish for. A love so patient and kind, so tender and steadfast.
Prophet Jeremiah said;
“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.”
A love so kind, so beautiful that it’s better than life.
King David in Psalms 63:3 says
“Because your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise you.”
A love so selfless that He gave up Himself, all of His glory and majesty just for YOU and I just so we can live the best kind of life- eternal life.
John 3:16 AMP says
“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Saviour] shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
1 John 4:10
“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”
God is love and we are the object of His love. I want you to take some time out today, to think on this great and too good to be true Love that we have in Christ and like King David, let your lips praise and adore Him.
Just like you’d say sweet words to a lover, say sweet words to the true lover of your soul, tell Him how grateful you are to be the object of His love and mercy.
It’s the month of love let’s love on our ABBA Father.
Dear heavenly father, I thank you for loving me ever so graciously. I thank you for making me the object of your love. Thank you Lord for sending your son as the perfect sacrifice, your perfect showcasing of your love towards us, so that we may enjoy that close fellowship with you. Thank you father, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
