Recipient of His Love
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1 John 4:9-10
God's love is uncomprehending, and we may never fully understand His love. He gave His Son so that we can have life. Jesus Christ paid that ultimate sacrifice so that we can live eternally with God if we accept His gift of salvation. Jesus says in John 15:13, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." God's love is far greater than our earthly love for someone. His love never runs out for us, and nobody can love you as He loves you. Even when we mess up, He is there to forgive us when we ask with a repenting heart, and to love us just the same. God's love for us doesn't depend on what we do or how much we love Him back, but that doesn't mean we should live how we want and not love Him. We should have a desire to love God as much as He loves us, and to give our life back to Him by serving Him and telling others about God's love. Are you a recipient of God's love?
