Daily Devotional: He loves me that way

Matthew 24:35

~Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.~

willing to let god in I had always heard that I was supposed to love other people with a First Corinthians 13 kind of love. Someone suggested that I test my love for others by putting my name in wherever the chapter mentions “love”. Then I remembered 1 John 4:16 says that God is love. And since 1 Corinthians 13 explains what love is, I decided to put God’s name beside the word love and relate it to myself:

God’s love toward me is kind, God’s love toward me is patient, God’s love toward me is not provoked, God’s love toward me does not take into account a wrong suffered, God’s love toward me would bear all things, believe all things, hope all things, endure all things, God’s love toward me would never fail.

It was overwhelming to think that He loved me in that way. By Ney Baily, found in the book, A Gentle Spirit: Devotional Selections for Today’s Christian Woman.
