“We love Him because He first loved us.”
1 John 4:19
Most parents expecting their newborn excitedly prepare for its coming. They buy the essentials such as diapers, baby clothes, crib and stroller to name a few. Even if the parents have not seen their child, they delight in knowing that there would be an addition to the family. They love their child even before he or she is born.
This is exactly a reflection of God’s love. Just think about it. Before we came into existence, our loving Heavenly Father prepared everything we needed. When he created the world, He already had us in mind and the things we need to live. He lavishly gave the light, the heavens, sea, land, vegetation and animals before He made us. He also fashioned us into His own image. He did this all with love. He was ready to pour out His love on us so that nothing can stop us from having this intimate relationship with Him. This is why we love Him, because truly God first released and showered us with His love. This is why we are made to worship Him.
Father, thank you for loving me. Thank you for showing me what it truly means to love. Help me today to reflect the love that you have for your children. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Sit and spend time today to receive the love of our Heavenly Father. Press in and experience His great love for you.
