L is for Love –
“Long ago The Lord said to Israel, ‘I have loved you my people with an everlasting love. With an unfailing love, I have drawn you into myself.” Jeremiah 31:3 [NLT]
Never has anyone loved so purely, wholly and unconditionally as our Lord. It’s really beyond our comprehension the kind of love that He has for us!
Throughout history God has shown this love for mankind, but never more than that first Christmas. God wrapped love into a bundle and send Him to earth. John 4:9 tells of this phenomenal event and the reason for it. “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.” [NIV]
We are so blessed that God promises us that there is nothing that will ever sever that love. Romans 8:38-39 states with much assurance, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” [NIV]
I am so happy this love will never end. It is, by far, the greatest thing that we will ever experience. 1 Corinthians 13:13 authoratively states, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
