Description:
Day 3: Thanks
First loved
Reading:
God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the
world so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God
but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins…
We love because he first loved us.
1 John 4.9-10, 19
Reflection:
It is so powerful that even when we didn’t
know God and didn’t really care about God,
He loved us. He doesn’t love us because we
do things right or dislike us because we do
things wrong. The revolution of His love for
us is that it can’t be earned. He just loves us.
It is a pure gift.
In the same way God loves us before we
knew it, He works for all whether they
know it or not. God is working in everyone’s
life. Some people see it, some people don’t.
God’s love acts for all – but what God wants
more than anything is for us to recognise it
and welcome it. The calling of Christians
is to be those who point out how God is
already at work in their lives; it is a calling
to be channels, not creators of God’s love.
Prayer:
Loving God, thank You that before we
loved You, You loved us first. We recognise
Your love for us today and choose to love
You too. Thank You for my friends. Please
open my friends’ eyes to Your love and
action for them.
Action:
It is easy to take people for granted. Are
there ways today that you can demonstrate
to those you are praying for how grateful
you are for them being in your life?
