1 John 4:16

The greatest selling love song of all time is called, “Love Is All Around”, by an 80’s Scottish rock band. It start outs, “I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes. The love that’s all around me, and so the feeling grows”. That perfectly describes the love I feel for God. He is my Master, Lord, Savior, Friend, and Father. And as full as my heart is for Him, what makes it burst at the seams is the love that He in turn feels for me. Many are the attributes of our most high God. He is good, merciful, faithful, wise, and all powerful; just to name a few. But above of else, God is love. And we can rely on that love, as proven through the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. All we need do is open our hearts and receive His free gift of grace. That’s it. No strings attached, no conditions to meet, no standards to reach. God wants to pick up us, wipe away our tears, replace our sorrow with joy, and make us royalty in His kingdom forever. And all because He loves us!
