The word “love” evokes all kinds of images: we hear songs about it, read books about it, and write poetry about it. Messages about love surround us. Some of us even refer to the Bible as a “love story,” even though it’s quite different from the love stories we see in movies.
The love found in the Bible is a deeper kind of love than simple romance or affection, even as profound as those loves can be. God’s unconditional, unchanging, and unceasing love for us, as expressed through the person of his Son, Jesus, calls us into a sacrificial love that extends to everyone, even strangers and enemies.
Be encouraged by these devotions that describe this deep love God has for us—a love that strengthens and empowers us to show the same love to others, even when it’s hard.
“The greatest blessing, and perhaps the only constant in the universe, is the mighty force of God’s love.”
“You might say we all have a terrible love life: we love the wrong things for the wrong reasons and in the wrong ways.”
“Real love, God’s kind of love, is actually a choice that leads to feelings.”
“Jesus challenges us to show love that is radical and crazy by the world’s standards.”
“It takes the love of Christ to reach out to the stranger who might just bring a unique blessing that you never saw coming.”
