Thought For Today: “The Father’s Gift of Love”
Our Heavenly Father absolutely loves us. It’s been said that if God had a refrigerator our picture would be on it. Or if God had a wallet our photo would be in it. Think about it this way, in this great big universe with its multiple dimensions, where God could choose to live anywhere He wanted, instead He chose our hearts as the place He desires to reside.
This is what we were created for, a loving relationship with our Heavenly Father. God’s desire is to be with us, to walk, talk, and know us and to be known by us on an intimate basis.
The only problem is that our sin separates us from this relationship (Isaiah 59:2). But because of God’s great gift of love, we can each enter this intimate relationship.
The Apostle Paul tells of this remarkable gift of love saying, “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
Also, “Because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved.” (Ephesians 2:4-5)
This is the Father’s love for us. He said, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” (Jeremiah 31:3)
