God is Love

There was a time that I would immediately tense up when I heard someone talking about the love of God. I would normally worry the next thing they would say was an excuse to live in rebellion to the God they claimed to love and serve. Although that’s still a tragic, wrong way of thinking, I know that only the love of God can transform hearts and minds.


God isn’t simply “loving”, He is the perfect manifestation of love. His love for us is perfect. His love is unfailing. Nothing can separate us from His love.


How much does God love you? See John 3:16:


“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”
John 3:16 NLT


Trust Even in Fear

COVID. Social, political, and economic unrest. An uncertain future. Hopelessness, despair, pain, suffering. The list of reasons to fear always seems to be growing… in Christ I can cast every fear an anxiety on Jesus because He cares for me (1 Peter 5:7).


Today I’m thankful the God I serve gives me rest, peace, grace, and hope to face anything life can throw my way. Are you afraid or anxious? Jesus is calling: come. (Matthew 11:28)

Have Mercy

If my brief 34 years have taught me anything it is we are all desperately in need of God’s loving mercy, kindness, love, and grace. If David, a man after God’s on heart, could fall into horrible sin, none of us are infallible. The Scripture teaches us that no one is righteous, no not one (Romans 3:11). We all need Jesus, the only perfect One to ever walk the face of this planet.

What I find fascinating is that even while I was a sinner, Jesus died for me (Romans 5:8). This means while I was an enemy of God, while I rejected Him and ran as far and as fast away as I could, He still loved me. How great is God’s love for you? Read John 3:16 and you’ll see an incredible proof of the great love God has for you. Spoiler alert: God loves you so much that He gave His only Son Jesus to die the death you and I deserved so we would not perish but have everlasting life.

My prayer for us today is our hearts would not become boastful, arrogant, or proud. Let us never forget our desperate need for Jesus. No matter how great the work has been God is doing in our life, He isn’t through with us yet (Philippians 1:6). Let us remember that it is God who has done the great work and trust in Him alone to continue it.
