God’s Love Story – Part 3

The love of God turns our culture’s definition of love upside down. It’s not your typical self-focused, action-dependent, convenient, performance-based kind of love. It’s a sacrificial love, a first-is-last and last-is-first love, a serving love, a pursuing love, an unconditional love. It’s love that burns bright for you, yet independent of you and your actions.

But Christ proved God’s passionate love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly! And there is still much more to say of his unfailing love for us! For through the blood of Jesus we have heard the powerful declaration, “You are now righteous in my sight.” And because of the sacrifice of Jesus, you will never experience the wrath of God.

Romans 5:8-9 TPT

While the Hallmark channel can create a good love story, it’s not reality. Yet these cinema love stories actually draw attention to our need for God and His love story. Because it’s our broken hearts, our brokenness, our sinful nature that should be upside on a cross instead of His love. A sacrificial love that refines and purifies. An amazing and abundant love that hung on a cross for each of us, for you, so His pursuit of your heart could be even bolder and burn brighter.

Let’s just focus on the cross while we stretch and breath together.
