Romans 5:8 NASB
God demonstrates His own love toward us,
in that while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.
Interestingly, the Bible doesn’t ever just say that God loves us.
Instead, it says: “God demonstrated his love…”
“In this is love, not that we loved God but that God loved us and gave…”
“For God so loved the world that he gave…”
Love is more than emotion or intention.
True love, redemptive love, God-styled love is active; it does something.
For us, Jesus did more than something; He sacrificed everything.
What’s more, He did it when we most needed it.
He demonstrated His love when we were sinners!
▪︎ Thank God for loving you.
▪︎ Thank God for what He has done for you.
▪︎ Thank God for showing you how much He loves you by sacrificing His Son for you.
▪︎ Ask God to empower you to show your love for Him by serving, and giving to others, as Jesus did.
