A Father’s Love

Be reminded today of how much God loves you.  I recently watched the movie, “Taken,” in which a 17 year old girl is abducted while traveling in Paris.  She frantically calls her dad, and he assures her that he will come for her.  It’s an inspiring reminder of how far God will go, and has gone, to demonstrate His love for His children.  No person, no thing, no evil force can stand against a father’s love.

“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”   Rom 8:38-39

In the movie, the daughter could do nothing to save herself.  If her dad didn’t intervene, she would spend the rest of her life in bondage.  Sound familiar?

Eph 2:8-9 –“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.”

God, being rich in mercy and because of His GREAT love, rescued us and by His grace has given us a new lease on life.  Think of where you would be today without God’s love and grace.  Let His love for you melt your heart and compel you to action.

Thinking of how much God loves you as you go through your day will dramatically change the way you relate to others.  You are alive because of His love.  You are where you are because of His love.  You have what you have because of His love.  You and I will more effective integrate our faith with our work when we stay mindful of how much God loves us.

Listen to this song and worship God for His amazing love, The Power of Your love. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eA4narr2wyE

Pursue the God who is always pursuing you,
