I love romantic movies where you have the guy who is in love with the woman, but the woman loves someone else. She goes through a confusing time trying to find love and happiness, only to discover later in the film that the guy she ignored loved her most. They fall in love and their new life together begins.
The God we ignore loves us most
He’s the one that paid the cost
The God we ignore has never left
He’s the one who gave Himself
The God we ignore loves us endlessly
He’s the one who set us free
No one loves us like He does
With Him we fall in love
and our new life in Him begins
our new life in Christ begins
Today, let’s make these Scriptures personal…
“For God so loved (say your name), that he gave his only Son, that (say your name) believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (see John 3:16).
“But God shows his love for (say your name) in that while (say your name) were still sinners, Christ died for (say your name)” (see Romans 5:8).
“In this was manifested the love of God toward (say your name), because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that (say your name) might live through him. Herein is love, not that (say your name) loved God, but that he loved (say your name), and sent his Son to be the propitiation for (say your name) sins” (see 1 John 4:9-10).
“(Say your name) love him, because he first loved (say your name)” (see 1 John 4:19).
Prayer: Lord, You are amazing. I’m so sorry for ignoring You. I’ve been looking for love everywhere else and have been trying to find happiness in people and things, but now I see that You truly love me in a way that no one else can. I love You, and I receive Your love, Your forgiveness, and a new life in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
