Because He First Loved Us

Monday, June 10, 2019

Because He first loved us.Sometimes I fear that the truths of the scripture get a little short changed. That we, meaning I, have heard them so often, they have become so familiar that their impact doesn’t affect us as it should or once did.

Maybe that’s because God’s truth is simple, straight forward, easy to understand, but often difficult to master. Take 1 John 4:19, “We love, because He first loved us.” Pretty easy to understand. Yet, with a little thought that truth becomes more powerful. We are unable to love without God having first loved us. And from there it’s a pretty small step to understanding how utterly dependent on God we truly are, whether we understand or believe that or not. Without God and His great love for us we are totally incapable.

This week during Midday Prayer Time, around 10:30 AM and 2:30 PM I’ll be sharing from 1 John chapter 4.
