How often do you stop to consider just how loved you really are? David writes a song about God’s love, and we still sing parts of it today. He writes, “Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep (or the deep blue sea).” When we talk about God’s love, we are talking about a love that is willingly given, sacrificial, and unconditional. It is not based upon what I do or how much I please Him, He simply loves me for me. This is a love that is difficult to replicate simply because our love is, on many occasions, the exact opposite. We pick and choose who we love and then we love them because of their actions towards us or because they “make us happy.” David reminds us that true love is far deeper. It is based upon God’s love for us; therefore, it emulates His love. We literally begin to love others as God loves them, because we see them from His spiritual perspective and not from our fleshly one. Have you experienced God’s incredible love in your own life? If so, have you allowed it to change the way you love others? Jesus tells us that our love for one another will actually draw people to Him. That love does not flow from our flesh, but from the Spirit that lives inside of us. Tap into His love and watch Him change the way you love others.
Help me, Lord, to tap into Your great love for me and to love others as You have loved me. Help me to be clothed in Your amazing love and to celebrate it in everything that I do.
