First love

1 John 4:19 NASB
We love Him, because He first loved us.‭

Devotional

As human beings,

▪︎ We like to think of ourselves as the center of our universe.
▪︎ We determine the greatness or validity of most deeds, based on their impact upon us.
▪︎ We consider ourselves great adventurers, inventors, and investigators.

However, in the most important quest of all, we did not act first; God did.

▪︎ He loved us sacrificially.
▪︎ He loved us personally.
▪︎ He loved us first.

Our love is a response to His grace.
Our love is simply sharing with others what has been lavished upon us.
We love because he loved us first.

Prayer suggestions

▪︎ Ask God to help you to remember His great love for you when you are faced with temptation, led to doubt your love, or wonder about my worthiness.
▪︎ Ask God to help you to reflect His love in your daily life.
