John 3:16, "For GOD so loved the world that HE gave HIS only begotten SON, that whoever believes in HIM should not perish but have everlasting life." How can I love GOD with all my heart, soul and mind? I can't, until I realized that HE loved me with all HIS heart, soul and mind! When I try (by my own effort) to do what GOD wants, I fail miserably (because I am depending upon my own power). But when I am overflowing with HIS love I pass through life effortlessly. Doesn't this give us a "wake-up" call of the intensity and depth with which GOD loves us? When GOD sent JESUS, HE was effectively saying, "I know you can't love ME perfectly until you over-flow with MY love for you. PRAYER - FATHER GOD, thank YOU for loving me so much and giving me the HOLY SPIRIT to speak YOUR words in my heart. THOUGHT - The Cross demonstrates GOD'S perfect love and Grace toward us. MEDITATION - Loving GOD and others comes naturally when I know I am so loved by GOD. WRITE - Love is the fulfillment of GOD in me.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
