God is love. When we grasp just a droplet of the meaning of His love, our lives will be transformed.
God is love. This love is not just any love. It's a love that hurts. A love that makes a sacrifice. A sacrifice of a son. Unfortunately we aren't as sensitive to the idea since we're so used to hearing it.
God is love. You and I have life because He is a loving creator.
I am reading a book called Crazy Love by Francis Chan. This book has ministered to my life. It speaks about loving God.
When I say "loving God," what comes to your mind?
"Ugh, commandments?" "Darn it, I have to pray more?" "I don't like reading scripture...?"
The love that I am searching for with God, is an honest love. Where I fall in love with WHO He is and EXAMINE His positive attributes.
Falling in love with God should be the ultimate goal. Once you fall in love, sacrifices will come naturally to you.
Matter of fact, it won't seem like a sacrifice. When I say love, I mean LOVE. I mean getting to know the creator and building right relationship.
Receive this spiritual droplet and pray.
God, I pray that you would help me learn who you are and fall in love with you. God help me so that I can spend time with you and do what you want in my life. Let me experience real love. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Psalms 18: 1 I love you, LORD, my strength.
