“We love, because He first loved us.” – 1 John 4:19
Our ability to love does not come from ourselves. In fact, our ability to do anything does not come from ourselves. In and of ourselves we are but dust, capable of doing nothing worthwhile. Without the breath of God breathed into us we are but a vapid shell.
Because of His great love for us and the fact that He created us in His image, we have the ability to give and receive love. The most priceless commodity known to man is love. We all want it. We all need it. The sad thing is, many of us don’t get as much of it as we need. We look to family and friends to love us unconditionally, when only God can do that. Humans are simply not capable of loving each other that way. We can love each other deeply, affectionately, passionately. Unfortunately, human love has its limits.
God is the lover of our soul. We were created for fellowship with Him. Reach out to your Heavenly Father today and receive unconditional love from the only One who will never leave you or forsake you.
