“Love must be sincere.” – Romans 12:9
Although we may doubt the sincerity of people’s love, we need never doubt the sincerity of God’s love for us. Love compelled Him to come to this world in the person of Jesus Christ and suffer and die on our behalf.
It was love that gave Him the victory over death and made Him ascend to heaven where He intercedes for us. It was love that urged Him to forgive our sins and offer us the gift of His Holy Spirit.
This world will never know any love greater than that of Jesus Christ. He gave us the example of sincere love and urges us to love as He loved.
God of love, please help me to never lose sight of the greatness of Your love for me, no matter what happens in my life. Amen.
