Topic: Love Unshakable
We love Him because He first loved us. – I John 4:19 NKJV
We cannot fathom or measure the dimensions of God’s love for us. Why He loves us in spite of our flaws and weaknesses is a beautiful mystery. The Bible clearly states that while we were yet sinners, He died for us, even when we didn’t see him as our Saviour. God’s love for us didn’t wait for our performance to meet up or for us to please Him yet He sent His son to die for us. Jesus’ sacrifice is the ultimate expression of love. Here’s why.
Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends (John 15:13).” A sure way to prove your love for someone is the sacrifice; giving up something of immense value for the benefit of that person. What is more valuable than one’s life. And our Lord Jesus gave up His so we can have life and have it more abundantly. And check this, Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross proved that your life is of immense value. Oh yes! You are worth the sacrifice. You are too valuable to be lost.
So when the Apostle Paul asks “What can separate us from the love of God?”, he knew what he is asking. Christ has shown us His love and has paid the ultimate sacrifice. Every other thing cannot be compared to, neither can it stop or limit His love for us. And what does His love mean to us? It means that in every situation of our lives, He wants the very best for us, and has made available everything that will empower us to live for His glory.

Lord Jesus, I receive your love. Forgive me for taking your love for granted in the past. I believe that the love you have for me is enough to make me live the Holy and blessed life. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
