God’s Love

on February 14, 2012

“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God…”  1 John 3:1

I’m not a parent, but it’s still evident to me that in our human nature one of the greatest forms of love we experience is that of a parent to his or her child.  In 1 John 3, I think we can begin to understand God’s love for us, when it’s compared to a parent and child with us being called His sons.

However,  we can never fully grasp the magnitude of God’s love for us. John 3:16 is one of many examples of God’s love toward us.  “For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  We cannot comprehend the depth of God’s love for us in the sense that He would sacrifice His Son for us!

Not only is God’s love magnificent in the sacrifice He made for our salvation, but also in our daily walk with Him.  Psalm 68:19 says, “Blessed is the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation.”  God supplies our needs and draws us to Him on a daily basis.  He gives us peace, comfort, joy, and most of all… His unconditional love.  Are you experiencing the fullness of His love today?

“The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”  Jeremiah 31:3
