Deus caritas est! “…God is love.” 1 John 4:16
As we enter this season of reflection and renewal, let’s rediscover God calling to His children, revealing His goodness, and transforming each one with Perfect Love. "This is real love – not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins" (1 John 4:10) ~ Donna Oswalt
There is nothing on earth like the love of God when once it breaks on the soul; it may break at a midnight or a dawn, but always as a great surprise, and we begin to experience the uniting of our whole being with the nature of God. Oswald ChambersThe love the Father has for His children exceeds the boundaries of our imaginations. It is both marvelous and wonder-full, generous beyond explanation. We wrestle with trying to define and describe God's love. Believing that God's character is love can be confusing when the world we live in challenges us with loss and loneliness. While all about us constantly changes, we can take comfort in trusting God who never changes. God is love - even when.
What marvelous love the Father has extended to us!... we're called the children of God. 1 John 3:1
READ 1 John 3:1-3
- Who are the children of God?
- Read Galatians 4:4-7; how is it possible to become a child of God?
- Are you in God's family?
Father, Your love for us is higher and deeper and wider than we can understand. Jesus, You are the hope that makes us holy. Holy Spirit, breathe into us new life. Amen. -dho
