Yesterday we thought about Christ’s amazing love for us and then the opportunity and responsibility we have to love one another. Let’s think just a little more about this today.
“Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us…” (1 John 3:1).
The Apostle John encourages his readers to cherish the tremendous love of the Lord. He proclaims, “What manner of love the Father has for us.” The word “manner” is potapos and gives the idea of “what sort?” or “what quality?” To what can you compare the love that Jesus Christ has for you? How can you begin to describe it? If you are anything like me, His love is indescribably wonderful, and we rejoice to be the recipients of such grace. “Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so!”
For today: If you know the Lord Jesus, be watching for the many ways today that He reminds you of His love!
