1 John 4:19 NASB We love, because He first loved us.
I love that His love has no limits. I love that God is love. He loved us when we were sinners. Yes, before we even gave our hearts to Him (by asking Him to come into our hearts and forgive us for our sins) He loved us. His love is unconditional, meaning that there is nothing that we have to do to ‘earn’ it. No conditions must be met to attain His love. In fact, there is no way to earn salvation, it is only by His grace, it is His gift (Ephesians 2:8-9). He has already loved us. Before I turned to Him, He loved me (Romans 5:8).
Think of how He showed us the depth of His love by His sacrificial death on the cross (John 3:16). He held nothing back. He suffered so much anguish for us. I cannot even begin to imagine the pain he endured for us. That thought always brings tears to my eyes. Think of His great love, dear child of God. His great, immeasurable, indescribable and infinite love. The love that ran red for you and for me. He is no respecter of persons (Romans 2:11). He died and rose again, defeating death, so that we may live with Him forever.
I love Him because He first loved me.
I do love You so much! You are so bright and beautiful. All of Your ways are good. There is no good thing that You have withheld from Your children (Psalm 84:11). You have given the most immense gift ever, in the atoning death, of Your Son, on the cross. The only thing You want is for us to love and accept You into our hearts. I do accept You, Lord. I want even more of You. More of Your great love and grace. I so want to embody Christlike behavior, at all times. I am done with any worldly garbage and I just want to grow in You. Help me to be everything that You have designed for me to be, and to do what is in Your perfect will for my life. I love You and give You all the praise and glory. I am bowing, in Your presence, as I cry holy, holy, holy are You Lord. Thank You for Your great love. In Jesus name.
