This day’s reading: Zephaniah 3:17, Psalms 136:26, Romans 5:8, Ephesians 2:4-5, 1 John 4:9-11
Thank You for Your love that accepts me.
God loves us so much that even while we were living in our sinful ways, He came and made us alive with Christ. God’s love is not like our love. The love we have for others can be conditional. If someone loves us and treats us with respect, we love them back. If they are disrespectful and unloving, we often walk away from that relationship. God loved us first and He initiated a relationship with us while we were at our very worst. Stop trying to earn God’s love. You already have it. Let Him love you today. Receive His unconditional love. You cannot give what you have not first received yourself. RECEIVE IT!
Prayer – God, I thank You for Your unconditional love. I ask You today that You help me to receive that love. Fill me with the confidence of knowing that I am loved and accepted by You. Give me a fresh revelation of the power of Your cross. Help me to see myself as you see me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
