I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love.
John 15:9 (NLT)
THE THOUGHT FOR TODAY
An academic understanding of love is very different from an experiential understanding of love. It is also one thing to have experienced the love of another person and an entirely different thing to continue being in that love. How many times have you been told that Jesus loves you? How many times have you heard that? What proportion of it has made its way from your head into your heart? What kind of an experience are you having in your relationship with Jesus right now? Can you affirm that you have continued to live in His love? If not, then please return. Nothing has changed with God. He hasn’t lost his love for you in any way. His love for you is boundless, eternal, and unquenchable. He loves you without conditions. He has loved You with the same eternal love that the Father has loved Him throughout eternity. Today, come back and continue to stay in His love.
Jesus, thank You very much for the love You have for us. Please assist me in fully comprehending what it is that you are saying. I need your assistance to feel it in all its force and warmth. Please assist me in keeping your love at the forefront of my mind throughout the day.
