A Love Like No Other

How many times have you used the word "Love"?  Too many to count I'm sure.  Here's an easier question, "In how many contexts have you used the word "Love"?

You can love sports. One can love pizza, which I do! I'm sure someone has said they love to read books or love to watch television.  Truth is we misuse the word love everyday.  I think using this word in an inappropriate way devalues its meaning, making it an inter changeable word for like.

The bible tells us that "God is Love".  
One of those scriptures is 1 John 4:16 which says "So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us.  God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him".  Do you find it amazing that a God who hung trillions and trillions of stars and planets in the universe, a God who is eternal and all powerful, stoops down to love us?  Why? Because He is our Father.  He created us.  He's Dad for goodness sake, and as His children we should respond with all the love we can muster.  We do that in a myriad of ways. We read his love letters (the bible).  Spend time to talk with Him.  Honor Him by keeping his commands and loving other brothers and sisters He created.  I think the best possible display of love we can offer is to love, honor and follow the example of His beloved Son, Jesus.

Have you loved your Father today?
