The Matchless Love of God - Beloved Women - November 13, 2018
Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations. - Deuteronomy 7:9 NIV
In times when I have been at my lowest point, I have often closed my eyes and visualized the life and death of Christ. His existence on the earth is the ultimate reminder of God’s lavish love for humanity. Why else would anyone humbly endure humiliation, rejection, betrayal and unbearable pain, unless driven by a supernatural love?
This love remains unmatched. To date, no one has suffered as He did on our behalf and no one ever will. His sacrifice is a one of a kind tailor-made demonstration of the extravagant love of God. It is isolated and housed in a category all its own.
Before we were immersed in our sin or contemplating it, Christ was pierced and crushed for our sake. His sacrifice afforded us an uneven exchange; He took our punishment while we got peace. And although God the Father could have intervened and opted not to go through with this master plan of redemption, He did not.
Dear God, Thank you for demonstrating your love for me by sending your son to die on a cross for my sins. Help me to live with the awareness of His matchless love every day. Amen.
How does being loved by God change the way you view yourself?
