DAILY READINGS: Deut. 31:14-32:14; Hosea 1:11; Luke 17:1-19
Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory. 1 Peter 1:8
It seems an incredible mystery that we love a person whom we have never seen. John gives insight into that kind of love by expressing that we love Him because He first loved us. He tells us also, “In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins,” (1 John 4:10). The greatest exhibition of love was fully expressed on the cross at Calvary. Christ died for us. It is by believing this we can rejoice with incredible joy! Are you a believer today? —Jim Paul
Teach me thus Thy steps to trace, strong to follow in Thy grace,
Learning how to love from Thee, loving Him Who first loved me.
