I have revealed you to them, and I will continue to do so. Then your love for me will be in them, and I will be in them. {John 17:26}

Have you ever stopped to consider the fact that God's love for His one and only Son is the same exact love He has for you? He loves us the same. That's a completely unfathomable thought. How can a Godwhose Son set the perfect example of the life to be livedlove usmessy, imperfect human beingsjust the same? Since Jesus said it, though, it has to be true (John 1:1). As you come to an understanding of this truth today, I hope you also come to the realization that the Lord is never distant or uninterested in you. God went through incredibly great lengths to have a lasting, personal relationship with us. The last place He wants to be is away from you. I guarantee it. How precious we must be to God that He would go to such great lengths for us! 

Ladies, Jesus desires for us to know that God sent Him to do what He did for us on the cross. This love is a complete and perfect love that God desires for us to bathe ourselves in. It is important that we live with this awareness of the Greater Love that loves and fills us. What happened on the cross was not a priceless thing. It was very costly indeed because it was you that was bought with that price (1 Corinthians 6:20); your life, your freedom, the forgiveness of your sins. You. Natural, human love is only temporary and runs out. But God's divine love is abundant, deep, wide, strong, refreshing, and eternal. It is the same love that He has for His Son, and He shares it with you. God longs for you to share this everlasting love that gives life. "May the Lord bring you into an ever deeper understanding of the love of God" today {2 Thessalonians 3:5}. There is no Greater Love than the love of God. And this love is Yours. Fully, always, and forever. 

May you respond to the Love that God offers you today by soaking it in and sharing it with someone else.
