Have You Been in Love?



Have you been in love with God? Do you know God? A child in a grocery cart asked a woman in the check-out line this question. "I know about him," she said. Persistant, the child said, "No, no. Do you know who He is?" It's probably no  mystery that the child was a preacher's son. 

What about you? Do you know God in a personal intimate way? One way to understand the meaning of intimacy is, "into-me-He-sees." When you are in a close relationship with someone, you expect him to: 

  • Be true to you.
  • Be someone you can depend on.
  • Be someone you can trust and believe in.
  • Let you be yourself. 
  • Totally accept you.

God wants the same from us. He wants to be loved by us. When we are in a love relationship, we want to please the person we love. It's the same with God. Yet, it is impossible for us to please God unless we believe who He is, the Creator and Savior of the world. 

Jesus shed precious blood on the cross to pay the price for our sin so we wouldn't have to. How will you respond to such great and redeeming love? May we love as we have been loved, forgive as we have been forgiven, and be devoted to God as He is devoted to us.

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for loving us first. Help us to live our lives pleasing to you. Teach us your ways and show us your paths. Amen.

"Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6).

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength" (Deuteronomy 6:5).
