We are designed FOR love and wired TO love.
We were created to be loved by God, to be the object of His affection, the apple of His eye.
Our response is to love Him back and to love others the very way He loved us. In and of our ability is an impossibility but IMMERSION IN HIS LOVE CAUSES US TO BE EXTENSIONS OF HIS LOVE TO OTHERS that sums it all up to loving God. “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’” (Matthew 25:40 NKJV) This is the TRUE essence of the cross.
Thank You, Jesus, for loving me first and gracing me to love YOU back and love others NOT by might nor by power but by Your Spirit.
