Behold, What Love!

"And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in Him." - 1 John 4:16

In a scene of a popular movie, Johnny Depp played a character who lectured his friend about the important things in life. "There are only four questions," he said. "What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for?

Then he said softly, "The answer to each is the same: only love."

That's true, though not as hollywood thinks. To the world, love is a shallow sentiment. To the Christian, it's divine reality. God is love, and he demonstrated His love at Calvary. This love is sacred; it's from Him. It prompted Him to form our spirits and make us in His image. It gives meaning to our lives and calls us to give ourselves for others. The language God used to share His love for us is found in His word, in His actions at the cross, and in His plan for our eternal future.

Behold what love is lavished on us! It's a love that we can both know and rely on today.

  1. Great post, thank you! =) I really like David receive devotional emails from him or are these on his website? Pat sends us some email devotions, Elizabeth Elliott and also Streams in the Dessert. They're usually really good.

    As you said, life is always a learning experience...if you lived to be 98 years old, you would still be learning! Learning is can make you a better & more loving person!!!

    We're planning to come down for lunch time on Saturday to see you guys and for the Barney Birthday! =) lol! We don't usually get to chat a lot when we're together because there's a big croud, but at least we have the blogs! lol! It will be great to see you guys! =)
