Thanking God Because He First Loved Me
“We love him, because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19 KJV). Can you think back to your first love? How did it make you feel? If your first love was anything like my first love, you couldn’t wait to see him. On his approach, did your heart began beating faster with every breath? Did the palms of your hands become sweaty, while at the same time your face became red as you anticipated his impending arrival? We can all agree, our first love was a unique experience, one of a kind.
Do you wish you could maintain such a love like your first love?! Well, Even though we may not be with our physical first love, we can definitely experience a love far and beyond that kind of first love, now and forever. I’m referring to a spiritual love. The love of God. If you fall in love with Jesus, His love will always be there. His love is everlasting, never-ending. It will never fade away. Every encounter is like the first. His touch never changes. His embrace is beyond a mere hug. His conversations are deep. You will find your heart panting for Him, as you anticipate His embrace.
You may ask, how can I acquire such love? Where is it? Where can it be found? It’s simple. All you need to do is open your heart, ask Jesus to come in and be your Savior. Then and only then will you possess His love eternally. He is waiting to be your first.
“Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 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 4:15-16 KJV
In God, I will keep on thanking Him for loving me first. By Hertistine Washington
