“The Lord did not set his heart on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other nations, for you were the smallest of all nations! Rather, it was simply that the Lord loves you, and he was keeping the oath he had sworn to your ancestors. That is why the Lord rescued you with such a strong hand from your slavery and from the oppressive hand of Pharaoh, king of Egypt.”
Memory Verse: No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us. 1 John 4:10
A lot of times we see people trivialize how important love is and as a result they don’t live in love. What tends to happen is we take our everyday lives for granted, behave as though everything the Lord has done is not actually done by God but nature (at least according to human understanding) and as a result we wake up every morning and just get through life as if it’s our entitlement.
Our life is centered around love, the very air we breathe is an evidence of God’s love Genesis 2:7. God created everything with His beautiful hands and created man to dominate His hand work. Have you ever imagined that? God decided to create the earth then place everything beautiful here in advance before creating you and I and He gave us full authority over all Genesis 1:28
The reason we still take the love of God for granted is because He has not placed a price tag on it as human beings believe that everything free is of no value but expensive things as worth the price but the love of God is the most expensive thing we could ever have to buy and we ordinary people will never have been able to afford it and this is why in his love for us, He sacrificed His only son Jesus to pay the unlimited price for us 1 John 4:10.
Our lack of appreciation of God’s love and lack of ability to share His love with others is born out the feeling of entitlement thinking we deserve it but we see today’s bible verse that God simply just loves us so He does a lot of things out of love. We benefit from His love day and night not because we deserve it but just because He loves us and we are to replicate the love of God to everyone around us.
God is love, Christianity is about love, anyone who claims to be a child of God should live in the understanding of God’s love. You cannot live in lack of love and be called a child of God because love is God and God is love.
