This is a week about love. And as fun as it is for me to brainstorm all the things I can do with my heart shaped cookie cutter, I also want to take some time to reflect on the love of Christ. This weekend we sang a song, “Oh the love of Jesus is enough for me,” written by one of our worship leaders. I began to think about how the love of Christ is enough for my past, present and future.
Christ’s love covers my past.
Titus 3:3-5 says, At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us. Isn’t it good to know that there is nothing that I have done that God cannot forgive me for?
Christ love sustains my present.
2 Corinthians 13:11 says, Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. His love is with me and in me.
