Holy And Blameless Before Him (Ephesians 1:4)

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

Ephesians 1:4 (KJV)

In Christ we are holy and blameless before the Father in love, not because of our actions or performance, but as a result of having been made the sons and daughters of God. Now it is God’s love that compels us and enables us to live right. Chains are broken and darkness loses its grip over us, as guilt and condemnation are replaced with the goodness and mercy of God.

God Is Love (1 John 4:16)

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 (KJV)

To dwell in God is to dwell in His love. When we understand that God does not have love, but that God is love, we find ourselves receiving His perfect love for us and in turn we can share it with others.

It is only when our hearts are saturated by the love of Christ that we have the ability to love others in the way He loves us.

Receive His Perfect Love (1 Peter 5:7)

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

1 Peter 5:7 (KJV)

To truly surrender all our cares to God we must understand how much He cares for us.

God’s Perfect Love (1 John 4:7-9)

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:7-9 (KJV)

Everything God has done for us through the finished works of Jesus is rooted in His perfect love for us. To know and experience the love of God, we look to Jesus and receive the fullness of what His grace has made available. In this we will find ourselves blessed and being a blessing.

Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.

Romans 13:8 (NKJV)

The key to loving is to first receive God’s love for us. The more that we receive His love, the more will we be able to reflect it into our world. May we resolve to live lives of radical love, and in so doing follow the example of the One who loved us first.

Confident To Rest (Psalm 116:7)

Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

Psalm 116:7 (KJV)
