God Loved You First

“We love Him because He first loved us.”

1 John 4:19

Ponder This

When I was in the sixth grade, I wrote a love note to Joyce Louise Gentry. Then she became my bride and my beloved. Do you know, she still has that note? From that time on she began to take an interest in me. Do you know why? Because I first loved her.

Do you know what the Bible is? It is God’s love letter to you. It is God saying to you, “I have set my eye upon you. I love you!”

You’re not saved by doing good works. You’re not saved by joining a church. You are saved by the grace of God that said, “I love you” first.

Practice This

  • When was the last time you wrote a love letter?
  • When was the last time you received one?
  • Spend some time today and write a love letter to the Lord.
