Warmth of the Father’s Love – My Daily Bread!
Our call to savor the warmth of our Fathers love is found in 1 John 3: 1, NIV, which reads:
”How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! ”
When I think of the word lavished spoken of in this passage to describe God’s love, I can’t help but think of a love so complete, it is poured out without restraint, overflowing without measure. A love so rich, and precious and exceedingly valuable. I think of Christ, the “indescribable gift” spoken of in 2 Corinthians 9: 15, NIV. My heart rejoices that God’s love was released in this age to redeem sinners like me! For in His infinite grace: “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3: 16, NIV)
A love that surpasses all that can ever be known, a love that never fails! This is the love that God has for you and me! Will you taste and see and believe?
