February Devotion

February is commonly known as the month of love and it is the perfect time to reflect on God’s unconditional love for us.  The familiar verse of John 3:16 summarizes God’s love well

     “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever

      believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”  (ESV)

It’s difficult to grasp the depth of this love, that God would send his own Son to pay the price for our sins, but he does love us that much!

 

It is further explained in 1 John 4:16: “we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”  (ESV)

 

God also calls on us to do the same: “But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”  (Matthew 5:44)  (ESV)

 

Be thankful each day for God’s unconditional love and try to show that to others as He has shown it to us.
