This is one of the first Scriptures that I ever memorized. Why?? Because I heard it every Sunday that I went to church growing up. Before the offering each week, the priest would say “Love as Christ loved us, and gave Himself for us, and offering and sacrifice to God.” Something about those words — they were really impressed upon my heart before I even knew what they actually meant. It can truly be difficult to love when you depend only on your own strength. But it is my prayer that God will show His love through us, strengthening us in those places where we are weak. While yet sinners, Christ died for us. Not that we deserved it, but we were worth it. Maybe you do not feel like you are loved. But, PLEASE read it for yourself. God loves you. He loves you so much that He wants to be your all. There is no greater love in this world, and it is available to you, no matter who you are or what your circumstances might be. You are worth dying for. God loves you so much that He will seek you where ever you are. Lord, help us to love like You.
