Our Love for God is a response to the Love He has always had for us. God did not expect us to Love Him first; we were incapable of doing so because of our sinful nature. So God took that extra step – He went the extra mile – and poured His Love out on all of us.
And we pray:
Dear God, I will always be in awe when I think of how great your Love for me, and everyone in this world, is. We weren’t anywhere close to righteous when You sent Your Son – Jesus Christ, to die for us; but that did not stop You. Lord, I will always set my heart on Loving You, ever grateful that You Loved me first. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
“The one who does not l/Love does not know God, because God is Love.” (1 John 4:8)
