There is a tender revelation each time I am reminded that God loved me first.
Today, the children at the Awesome Kids Ministry were reminded about the unfailing love of God to man.
From a crown of heart, which symbolizes love – the kids felt God’s embrace on a Sunday afternoon.
On a deeper reflection, if I love God truly, I would also be loving towards everyone in my life.
I simply cannot really love God in the way that He loves me, unless I also love everybody else.
Do you say you love me? I hear Christ asking me. I want to say yes, yes Lord, you know how much I do. Yet I also know my brokenness, my pettiness, resentments, and judgements. I am aware of my sins, especially the ones that seem to recycle themselves.
God never once says, “You are a sinner? Leave my sight.”
No, he says, “You are a sinner? Follow me.”
He walks with me every step of the way, like a true friend and a dear father.
Christ teaches me how to love by showing me love.
The power of knowing we are loved makes all things possible.
God loves you so much ❤
