God's Incredible Love for You

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

-John 3:16

This past Friday, I watched the move The Lake House on DVD. It was a romantic love story with a totally unrealistic plot. The impossibility of the storyline, however, didn't stop me from getting a little teary-eyed. Without going into the details of the movie, the whole premise was that true love overcomes every obstacle.

At the end of the movie, the Holy Spirit reminded me that every Christian has his or her own love story. That love story began over 2000 years ago when Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice for every believer who chooses Him as Savior. And even better than any movie on DVD, God's incredible love can overcome every obstacle, every time.

God's love is great.

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us.

Ephesians 2:4a

God's love is everlasting.

The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: "Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love."

Jeremiah 31:3a

God's love is sacrificial.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8

God's love is unbreakable.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, "For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter." Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:35-39

My Challenge to You:

Find someone who needs to hear about God's incredible love and introduce them to Jesus.
