LOVE LOVES ME

 
"With age-old love I have loved you." —Jeremiah 31:3
 

God the Father has loved us into being. There has never been a moment when we have not been loved perfectly by Him. He loves us so much that He has sent His eternally begotten Son to die for us (Jn 3:16). He has also given us the Holy Spirit, the eternal Fruit of the love of the Father and the Son. We are loved with a divine, constant, perfect, crucified, unconditional, and infinite love.

Beloved, it is impossible for us to be loved more. Yet we can "grasp fully, with all the holy ones, the breadth and length and height and depth of Christ's love, and experience this love which surpasses all knowledge" (Eph 3:18-19). We must "come to know and to believe in the love God has for us" (1 Jn 4:16). "God is Love," and we can abide in love (1 Jn 4:16). Thereby, we abide in God and God in us (1 Jn 4:16).

As we receive God's love, we can respond by loving Him with all our hearts and loving our neighbors as ourselves (Mt 22:37-39). In His love, we can even love our enemies. Live in God's love (Jn 15:10).

 
Prayer: Sacred Heart of Jesus, I accept You as my Lord, Love, and God.
Promise: "Woman, you have great faith! Your wish will come to pass." —Mt 15:28
Praise: Rhonda obeyed God's command to show unconditional love to her atheist neighbor, whom she saw baptized before her death.
