DAILY DEVOTION, June 15, 2022
God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him (1 John 4:9).
We know what human love is. It can be very powerful. If someone were hurting your child, love would compel you to do whatever it took to save your child. Our love, however, is very puny compared to the love of God. “God is love,” the Scriptures say. His love is so far beyond ours as to be incomprehensible. When God acted to show His love He did something remarkable. He sent His Son, Jesus, the second person in the Trinity, to suffer and die for us. When we trust in Jesus all our sins are forgiven. That is mega love!
God also gives us the gift of eternal life through Jesus. Sometimes we struggle to believe that God loves us. We feel so unworthy, and we are! But God has acted to redeem us nonetheless. God loves you with a love that far exceeds human love. Believe it! God loves you.
“Pause, my soul, adore and wonder,
Ask, Oh why such love to me?
Grace hath put me in the number
Of the Savior’s family:
Thanks, eternal thanks to thee.” (Author unknown)
Father, Your love for us is incomprehensible. While we struggle to understand how You could love us, we believe in Your love and we thank You for loving us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
