Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins – 1 John 4:10
continuing from yesterday…
This is the reason we yield our all in service to His name.
This is the reason we choose to be called fools for the sake of His purposes in the kingdom of Light.
This is the reason we deny self, every day, and pursue Him with our all…that we may please Him in every way…
This is the reason we refuse iniquity, and say no to all the wiles of darkness…because we have awakened to His love…our heart is swell with the reality of His unbelievable love towards us.
For when we were dirty in the miry clay, He himself waddled into the pit and pulled us out-even as we kicked and screamed against Him.
When we were dying in the grip of sin and death, He took our place and bore the just punishment in our stead- even as we hurled insults at Him and mocked Him and said to him in the derision of scorn that He deserved it unlike us!
O when we were destitute and victims to the evil hand of the prince of darkness, He came in and said no more! He broke the hold of the enemy over our lives and gave us authority to walk in liberty…that we should no longer serve darkness and serve instead the Light…Selah.
Herein is Love!
O thank you Lord Jesus!
O thank you Mighty God!
