Devotional


Talk to God: 

 "Lord, please fill me to overflowing with your amazing love."

 

Read the Bible:  

1 John 4:9-12  "By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us."

 

Think About It:

 When I was a child, I had no problem saying "I love you" to my mom.  And I usually didn't have a problem feeling love for her.  But I did have a problem showing that love, especially if it meant cleaning my room!  Why?  Because this involved a sacrifice of my time, my energy, and my plans, and like it or not, my "love" usually didn't extend that far.  

 

We may hear a lot of loving words and feelings expressed on Valentine's Day, but Good Friday and Easter are the true holidays of love.  That's when we remember that God loved you and me enough to act on his feelings and words of love.  He sacrificed His time, His energy, and His only Son so that we could live.  And when we consider that He loved us while we were still sinners (Romans 5:8), all we can do is praise Him for His amazing love.

 

But wait, there's more!  The scriptures above tell us that if you are a believer in Jesus, God wants to perfect this amazing love in you.  When God abides in you by His Spirit, He will give you the power and the desire to love others.  He will enable you to make the necessary sacrifices of your time, your energy, your will, and more.  You & I can't muster up such love on our own, but God abiding in us will produce such an amazing love for others, that it can't help but be noticed by the world.  

As Jesus said in John 13:35, By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

 

Do Something About It:

Is there anyone that you have a hard time loving?  Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with His supernatural power to love this person.

What is love, according to God?  Read 1 Corinthians 13 and think about it.  Try memorizing it, and watch God change you & those around you with His love!
